Bibby gives up his entire next year salary
 
Bibby Agrees To Buyout With Wizards - RealGM Wiretap

Now, that's a player who really wants out. Kudos to him and I wonder - why something like this didn't happen to us? Zo? Peja? :(

thought 02-28-2011 04:22 PM

I wonder if he'll sign with the Heat

because Washington is an even less desirable place to play than Toronto? ;)

washington shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath as toronto...anyone ever been to washington? save for capitol hill the rest of the city looks like a war zone

you can see him going to boston or LA or Miami, they are all contenders and all in need of PG's. Even New York could use him.

I wonder if the US media will go on about nobody wanting to play in Washington?

that's the irony my friend. I bet if you poll NBA players, the majority would rather play in Washington than Toronto.

I agree, and it's mostly just because they'd rather stay in the States no matter what.

All I gotta say is ahahahaha!!, no one wants to play in Washington, trust me.

I dunno...if the NBA is in lockout next year (which everybody thinks it will), he wouldn't have gotten paid anyways, correct? So he's not really giving up that much...

DC is an important city with black people in the US, probably 2nd to ATL. Atlanta being "Black Hollywood"
lot of nice houses in the burbs

oh you think so?

Don't kid yourself. Even with all the glaring differences with what the respective cities have to offer as places to live, Toronto is a less desirable place for your typical American born NBA player. If you disagree i would like to hear why, but seeing as all you have is ahahahaha, i am not expecting much.

Acie 03-01-2011 01:19 PM

Nobody wants to play in either city.

b55bgc 03-01-2011 01:24 PM

Toronto is more desirable than Washinton.

Nobody is a strong word. IMO outside of the max players most other players go where the money is.
