i agree we shouldn't get too carried away and expect
things to happen but he did also say that one more season of similar improvement would make him close to stardom. I'm confident.
got to admit, didn't think of DD's contract in terms of the lockout! pretty dumb of me. What the hell do we offer him if there's no season!?
for me, no way a max deal, can't do surely? a 3 year deal (are bird years renewed on each new contract, or would the fact that it's the same team mean a continuation of that?) at around bargs' money?
