    the yellow on the new home jerseys look like a cross between the showtime era gold and the 2000s-2010s bright yellow. i wish they would have just gone back to the gold but at least they didn't stick with the bright yellow

    if last season was any indicator, they'll rarely wear the purple road jerseys (which are now completely messed up) i'm guessing they'll go with the sunday whites at home often with the yellow worn on the road

    It’s not that much to be honest. It’s $3m per year when he makes $35m per year (salary and endorsements). So less than 10% of his salary goes to his kid. I’m sure a lot of parents wished that were the case :laugh:

    He only ends up with about half of that, maybe a little more now that he lives in Michigan and not California.

    Sounds like they really didn't want him around the kids.

    ...at least now we have that 1 Max slot opened up even if we don't move Lee or THJr...

    I don't blame them. Noah can hardly move anymore and he isn't exactly very well liked.

    What was funny was giving him that kind of money when he was already declining.

    Noah is an American, Swedish and French citizen. At least he has that going for him.

    If I was Noah I'd be going with American/Swedish angle.

    Noah's 33 now so he probably won't be part of any youth movement. Maybe he could go to a team that needs some veteran depth coming off the bench.

    Did the NBA end up warning teams not to extend-&-stretch anyone this summer? It’d only open an extra ~4M for us, but I still wanna see some team see what the league will do if they try it. Cause the rules don’t forbid it anywhere and I’d love to see how the league reacted if LA did that with Deng.

    I don't think the NBA cares if teams use the waive and stretch option. This article does a good job of breaking down the Noah situation and why it's smarter for them to wait until after September 1st:

    By stretching Joakim Noah, the Knicks might create a new problem to solve an old one

    I was asking about extend & stretching; i.e. signing Noah to a 4 year extension on the minimum & then stretching him after September 1st so that his final year is stretched out over a much longer time...netting Jo an extra 6-7M for being co-operative.

    To Make Room for 2 Stars, Lakers Should Give Luol Deng an Extension, Seriously

    Ah. My bad. I didn't even realize that was a thing. Yeah, the NBA probably tries to shut that down pretty quickly.

    Thing is, it’s not against the rules and Boston has already done something kinda similar when they had a guy opt into two years where he wasn’t guaranteed anything, before stretching him & so gaining a couple extra years to stretch the cap hit out over.

    Apparently a couple of teams grumbled about it at the time, but nobody pushed the league to do anything. It’s not technical against the rules & so the only mechanism for punishing a team for it is to utilize the league’s “cap circumvention” catch all; which requires most (or all) teams to push for it.

    Yup. They couldn't have made it more obvious.

    He's right, but Tim Kawakami has always been a guy who goes against the team to make his stories. He bashed the 49ers and Harbaugh while he was there then did a 180 when he left. He's a troll when it comes to bay area sports.

    I thought it was just that he didn't like Jed York.

    Nick Young was arrested last night.


    from espn.com:

    Former Golden Stat Warriors guard Nick Young was arrested Friday night in Hollywood, California, according to online court records.

    TMZ reports that Young was arrested on an obstruction of justice charge after he refused to cooperate with police during a traffic stop.

    According to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department records, Young was arrested just before midnight local time Friday and released on $10,000 bail about three and a half hours later.

    The next court date in the case is set for Sept. 19.

    Thibs is trying to get the entire band back together. He probably goes to sleep each night praying the Knicks stretch Noah.

    Thibs is going to be the reason both KAT and Wiggins ask out. I can't wait for that to happen.

    KAT and Wiggins both have their issues, especially defensively, but in the NBA you have to try to keep those guys happy. This was supposed to be a good time for the Wolves but there aren't many positives coming from there.
