yikes... how many teams were realistically in the market for him?
how many would have spent over a hundred million for his services?
washington overpaid large.... especially to a guy who sat out almost the entire season last year.
the only teams that could have afforded him this off season are (i dunno) philly, and few others, and they werent going to spend their bankroll on him... i dont even know if any teams were even targeting gilbert.
oh well, at least washington is in the east... they will build their team around a guy who is not a winner and will never be. he's only in it for himself IMO, that team will never be an elite team, ever.
Watch Jamison jump ship... i wouldnt blame him if he did.

they couldve gotten a lot more via a sign and trade IMO.
