That’s…..borderline uncomfortable money for me, at first glance.

Does Craig number make you more comfortable?

Way past the feeling that people playing with a ball deserve that kind of money. :D

Taking place in the grand self destruction show, it is a market overpay indeed.

I tend to keep the thoughts of the basketball space separate from the thoughts of the world space at large, in an attempt at relaxation.

I actually expected worse so I’m glad it wasn’t over 10 mil per.

Yeah but with what everyone else got already it's a bit easier to stomach.

For a similar role, the 19m/3 Cam Payne re-upped with the Suns looks like a steal.

But if TJ can become the steadying locker room vet over the life of that contract, it's worth it.

Agree if Cam continues to improve the Suns way underpaid !

I keep them together and work very hard to stay relaxed about every aspect of reality :) .

I allow emotions to ebb and flow in a fair manner where they should. Some things just can't be relaxed about. Others can. :dontknow:

That's a lot of money for his role, but he brings something to the team that's hard to find.

That's a lot of money for a PG who can't shoot, especially considering Justin is only paid $6m per year

Again, as with Doug, it took until the hiring of Bjorkgren for McConnell to flourish, and again I wish McMillan had managed to do it earlier so that the team might have been able to flip McConnell for a minor asset

But he's here for the long haul now, so I hope this works out for the team
