and why would he take less than that at his age with 2 small kids when guys like norm were overpaid when their contract came up for renewal ? Come on now the guy deserves more than that because that’s his value! The guy is not some old aging vet like ibaka. The guy is just entering his prime as a player in this league. If he’s taking less at age 26 he’s doing us a favor and should be commended for that but to say his offer should be less is ridiculous. Without Fred going beast mode in the late stages of the playoff this team doesn’t win a championship period. It’s crazy how this fan base rates guys like Gasol that showed up for 1 season on defense but forget who was scoring the points while players like him and Green were a negative on offense and putting up countless zero point games In last seasons playoffs. You think we were going to win without players like Fred contributing on offense ? The moment fred had his kid he was playing at an allstar level in the playoffs last season and was arguable the 2nd option scorer on this team behind kawhi. People forget all the big shots this guy hit with stitches under his eyes and a chipped tooth Smh if Fred leaves for more money I can understand that fully and respect it because another teams obviously see’s his value and wanted to offer him more but to say his contract should be less is ridiculous!! Him excepting Anything under that is doing us a big favor. Fred deserves more than that but if he takes this at his age then he’s doing us a solid.Syd-TK3 wrote:Needs to be less than that honestly
It’s crazy how this fan base can overate bench warmers and Fight down anybody that says guys like Hernandez are scrubs or overrate guys that hardly get on the floor like brissett or whatever his name is and Paul Watson but act like Fred is some kind meh player that hasn’t proven Himself to be one of our better players that contributed to a championships here. These are the same people that want to ignore gasol being irrelevant in the playoffs this season because he was a good defender in the playoffs last season. Give me a f...... break man. This fan base has zero loyalty but complain when superstars bolt out of this place.
You know the guy or girl that used to always call you to hang out when you and them were trying to find your feet in life and once they found their feet they stopped calling you because now they feel like they’re too good for you ? that’s some of the people that make up this fan base. When this team hits rock bottom again as taste of reality then some of you will look back and appreciate certain things and certain players contributions to us being to team in this league. Some Fans around here are really getting too big for their britches.
There’s a difference between Kawhi as your first option teammate and pascal as your first option teammate!
FOH and Pay the man and cut corners somewhere else.
