They're not cheating, I admire them for taking a paycut to win. Every other superstar in any sport is just money hungry, and handicaps a team.

yeah, hopefully lowry signs with them a discount too so they can afford to take amir from us next season too.


how nice would have been if Bosh would have signed with the Raptors at a massive discount 8 years ago ... Guess it's easier to give miami a huge discount when you stuffed your pockets with canadian dollars for 7 years.

You wanted Bosh to give up money on his first "real" contract after his rookie one?

Pretty sure that no player in any major sport has ever done that.

The heat restructuring directly affects the raps I won't be shocked if Lowry leaves for Miami

I won't be sad either I want Bledsoe. Don't gete wrong I love Lowry but I'm thinking long term with derozan Jonas and Ross plus Bledsoe that's a young core we can lock up for 10 years

Plus I don't like players who step up in contract year to me that's more risky he could show up out of shape like last year very easily when we all wanted him gone

I was saying last year we should get Bledsoe look how much he increased his value in one year

Bledsoe is really injury prone is he not? I dunno if I want that.

Yes, he increased his value a lot in one year. But, like Lowry, wasn't it a contract year for him? You should be consistent on that end.

And by the way, I'm not sure that last year all the people wanted Lowry gone. Just speak for yourself.

Lowry seems to like it here, has good chemistry with the roster, and knows he can be a leader of this ambitious team. He is the priority of the FO as he should be, and I personnally don't see Bledsoe signing for the Raptors this summer; he is a RFA and he's gonna be in high demand.

You might want to consider lowering the size of your wager.

Or the fact Bledsoe wasn't playing behind Chris and got to play his first season as a starter. Plus the fact that Bledsoe hasn't been in the league long to assume he is playing for a contract. Bledsoe is just being Bledsoe where as Kyle Lowry first year was horrible and his second season is the complete opposite I don't think Lowry can do it every year I prefer Bledsoe personally but if Lowry comes back I just he is the guy last year and not the guy who was over weight and fighting with coaches
