Brent Barry was a terrific signing.
Manu was signed for what 54 million for 6 years.
Rumors were Denver was going to offer some 65 million.
Glad to see points per game is the only thing that matters...not assists, not rebounds, not how a player changes the game when he is in the game.
You do realize that Manu will get abotu 6.5 million this year right?
You totally missed the boat on the points I made. Brent Barry was a good signing, in no way was it terrific. He is not a starter and got a decent contract for what the market value is at 4yrs and 22 million. He is going to be 33 this year and is old and his best days are clearly behind him. He is a decent back-up and role player but Brent Barry and the word terrific should never be associated.
As for Manu, what difference does it make if he gets 6.5 mil this year? The life of his contract will escalate yearly and he will make the $54 million. The numbers are not just for show. And if he was so great, he would not have been basically just a 6th man last year. He is a decent team defender, a wild offensive player. He is nothing special and truely not worth $54 million. Rasheed Wallace just got a similar contract I believe, now do you think Manu deserves Rasheed money? I don't know many people that do.
