Looking at this again...

Does this basically mean once we resign Klay we have nothing but the MLE to work with? Oof

I say buy low on Lonzo, trade Draymond to Rich Paul/Lebron for him

sign Thad Young with MLE and Ivan Rabb

Lonzo
Steph
Klay
Young
Rabb

Smallball GQ statpad FTW. Solid gold. You can't handle it.


You can pick up another $5M by letting Livingston go since only $2M is guaranteed for him. But even if Klay walks and they renounce all FAs and tender no QOs, there's not much to work with. Besides guaranteed salaries, there's a cap hold for an incomplete roster charge, (rookie minimum salary x number of players fewer than 12), a cap hold for the combined amount of Mid-Level and Bi-Annual exceptions, and a cap hold for the first round draft pick (120% of scale.) Without Klay or Livingston, you're still looking at over $100M in team salary.

KD came to GSW to increase his endorsements..He’s not going to a smaller market..He wants to win sure..but that’s only because winning brings in more endorsements..He’s going to end up in NY or LA..My guess is door #2

Does it? Did Carmelo anthony, Patrick Ewing, Latrell sprewell, Amar’e Stoudemire, porzingis have a ton of endorsements because they were in NY?

It’s 2019...you don’t HAVE TO BE IN NY OR LA to have endorsements. Social media people. Internet. It’s not the 1990s anymore.

Sooooooo many more opportunities in California and Ny..Look up how much LJ’s endorsements increased this year..Look at KD’s endorsement totals in OKC compared to GSW....You think Antetokounmpo’s staying with the Bucks longterm ? Lol. Chamberlain, Jabbar, Shaq, Kobe (forced the trade), LeBron etc etc..they come to LA for the networking and edoorsements..and they’re are going to keep coming..doesn’t matter anymore? Haha

KD’s not headed to Boston lol..

Of course those guys you listed aren’t going to get huge endorsement deals..Amare ? Lol he was already done as player before he got there..Carmelo I’m sure made more in NY than Denver but it was limited because he never won sh*t..Spree? You think companies would line up to be endorsed by a thug who grabs coaches throats?

I don’t know enough but I’m assuming why does someone HAVE To be in LA or NY to get huge endorsements? KD already has a fat Nike check. I mean Look at MJ. Shaq has always had a ton of endorsements wherever he is.

What are the numbers for Lebron since he went to LA? He’s had so many endorsements before...has it really gone up since going to LA?

They’ve gone up for LeBron and especially Durant...I read an article on it last month..It was from the WSJ I think..Not sure though..KD even said that’s what he was coming here for...To win and network..build his brand..To make more connections in the SIlicon Valley and LA.. ..You really think there’s no $$ difference from OKC-MILWAUKEE to LA-NY! I can’t think of 1 non-public line of work that makes the same

he got 300 million from Nike, don't think he really cares that much about getting more Alaska Air and AFI type endorsements. Last year he made 30 mill off Nike and 2 mill from all his other endorsements combined.

He does ..he even said it clearly and direct..For narcissists like KD? I think he definitely cares...The Walking Catastrophe in our Oval Office is another example.

..me? Sh*t I’d have no interest in going from barely rich to grossly rich like KD..heck I’m set now for life and have no interest in ever putting out anymore effort just for money

How many days left till KD leaves..Jezz what an ***....


I expect our original core to be totally energized in 19-20..Can’t wait to get Draymond and our old level of intensity back

That is unless Myers signs Carmelo..

Can't be dealing with the obvious when someone has an agenda.

We need a major roster overhaul to be re-motivated.

Make sure Splash Bros stay together and then just build around that. Hopefully the front office can work some magic around our cap space.

Minus Durant ? No doubt our team chemistry snaps right back from bottom3 to the best in the NBA..That is unless Kirk-Joe and Bob front office ***** it up ..Which is maybe even probable

It's not the same Green anymore, he's no longer Draybeast. He shows flashes here and there when he gets fired up, but most of the time he's more like Draydiva.
