NBA: Cut me so I can go to the PLAYOFFS…PLEASE…I WILL TAKE A PAYCUT OR NOTHING AT ALL….

HEY FOLKS…THINGS JUST GOT A LITTLE MORE INTERESTING. DAYS AFTER THE FEBRUARY TRADE DEADLINE, MANY VETERANS WHO HAVE MADE THEIR MONEY EARLIER IN THEIR NBA CAREERS ARE ASKING FOR THIER WALKING PAPERS. MIKE BIBBY, TROY MURPHY, LEON POWE, JUST TO NAME A FEW HAVE BEEN WAIVED BY THEIR CURRENT TEAMS IN A WAY TO CUT SALARY CAP ISSUES OR TO SAVE MONEY ON PAYROLL BUY LETTING THESE VETERANS GO. OTHER VETS LIKE JARED JEFFRIES AND TROY MURPHY HAVE DECIDED TO PLAY FOR PLAYOFF BOUND TEAMS BY TAKING BUYOUTS. MIKE BIBBY ON THE OTHER HAND NOT ONLY TOOK A BUYOUT…HE PASSED UP ON HIS 6.2 MILLION DOLLAR DEAL FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SEASON TO JOIN THE HEAT. BIBBY REALLY WANTED A CHANCE TO WIN A RING WITH THE HEAT. IN RETURN, THE HEAT CUT TIES WITH CARLOS ARROYO, A VETERAN GUARD WHO COULD BE PICKED UP AS SOON AS TODAY BY ANOTHER TEAM NEEDING A TRUSTY POINT GUARD. THE NBA IS A FUNNY BUSINESS WHEN IT COMES TO MONEY OR WIN IT COMES TO WINNING. PLAYERS GET DESPERATE AND JUMP ON A WINNING CLUB BUY GIVING UP TONS OF DOLLARS TO WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP. WITH THE NBA ON THE VERGE OF A LOCKOUT, TEAMS ARE STARTING TO TRIMM UNNECCESSARY CONTRACTS IN ORDER TO SAVE MONEY AND HAVE FLEXIBILITY. PLAYERS ARE ALSO WISING UP AS THEY TAKE PAYCUTS IN ORDER TO CONTINUE THEIR QUEST FOR A NBA RING. WHAT DO YALL THINK…..IS PASSING UP GARANTEED MONEY WORTH A CHANCE AT A RING OR WHAT.?…..TALK TO ME….REAL TALK….

    good veteran move by veteran players. assume they handled their money well, now want to win before retire. if young player starting out, better take money and run

    Ain’t nuthin wrong with that them boys are on they way out and they want at least half of a chance at getting a ring. Might as well try to get you one before you retire..

    Thanks for the replys fellows…..My take is that if you can take a paycut to get a ring …do it….if you are a younger player…GET YOUR MONEY……
