Why does the league even have a cap if multibillionaires like Steve Ballmer bypass it?.....Seems the suckers are the teams who follow the rules!!! Then again this is the NBA who call the game differently for their stars....lol. I'm done with this wannabe WWE league.

Good luck to Serge.

Well, the we're gonna need a starting centre. Hopefully Boucher can graduate to full-time reserve C role, or we two centres. The frontcourt is a major weakness right now - I don't want Siakam playing heavy minutes, especially with such a short offseason to recover. We need to keep him healthy and fresh.

“We could have gone forever. (Raptors management) kept knocking on the door and I was like, ‘A couple more minutes.’ Because we were really into it."

I really wonder what Serge looks like without a competent point guard. It’s also well documented that with elite defense around him the last 2 seasons, the net ratings in the starting lineup with him as the 5 haven been negative.


Tbh he was the ideal fit for us offensively but if his shooting even regresses a bit I don’t think it’s as big a loss. I’m still gutted but I don’t know.... does he have the same success on the clippers?

Truth.

We all saw how Ibaka was clearly playing tiers above Gasol in the playoffs and even on our last game of the playoffs...it was BS to ride with Gasol over Ibaka. Even I was pissed, how do you think he felt? Disrespected.

Ibaka was always be loved in Toronto though.

HOW HUNGRY ARE YOU just got a huge boost in LA.

I hope I don't read that we didn't offer him anything that beats 2years 19 milll.

i can buy into the speculation that they did not want to pay the luxury tax this year, with the anticipation of going into the tax next year thereby avoiding the repeater tax.

also havent confirmed this but ownership may want to cut costs as they likely have to pay rent for an arena in Tampa that they did not originally anticipate.

Problem is we probably offered 1 yr 20 mil. I guess he wanted that extra year of insurance.

I didn’t anticipate my cable bill going up twice this year either but I managed. MLSE is flush with cash, don’t ever think otherwise especially when the main source of revenue for every NBA team is TV money not gates. If it was gates the Hawks would have relocated years ago.

I would rather take 1 year 20 than 2 19 no?

So he refused $20 million over 1 year to get $19 million over 2 years. He either needs to fire his agent or send him to math class.

I doubt they offered him that for one reason alone, how do you sign Ibaka for that and then expect to go get Gasol at the MLE? If what we're hearing is true that they want to keep Gasol I mean. Gasol wouldn't come here making less than Ibaka would he? Would be a humbling situation for him I'd think, being the starter and making the MLE while Ibaka makes 4 times more

Raptors had to pay Ibaka $21 Million Per Year to keep him. Clippers got him at 50% off at $19 Million for 2 years. Yikes.

Lol this board is losing their minds because of this. I'm not that surprised - the terms a little but clearly LA was sold to him and I'm sure being tight with Kawhi helped. I think a lot of people aren't looking into endorsements/fashion/hollywood opportunities he has there to build his brand - probably fashion etc. Sad to see him go but we move forward.
