    You can question the length of the contracts that were given and who they were given to

    Thats not what you want to do.

    You want to set up a trust fund so they get a monthly payment. You can set up a trust fund so your mother gets, say, $10,000 a month for the rest of her life. According to my math, $10,000 per month for 20 years is $2.4 million. That's better than giving her $2.4 million up front because she can blow it all in a matter of days and then she'll want more and you'd feel obligated to give it to her.

    So if you win, don't "give" anybody anything. Set up a trust fund.

    Now that I think about it, I could set up a trust fund for my brother. I'd give him $10,000 a month. He's about 45 now so $10,000 per month for 40 years is only $4.8 million. That makes more sense than giving him the money in one lump sum.

    I think a good amount of fans feel that way but we all know it's not going to happen. Hopefully Pelinka is the right man for the job and is able to work some magic while trading some of the youngters.

    Good to see Old Man Earvin interacting with the players and giving them game. It's really going to suck to see some of these cats go.

    What a fucking ugly half of basketball.... SMH... Signing a Defensive specialist as an assistant coach next season is a must.
  • toheeb27toheeb27 Posts: 9,163 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Sometimes Luke Walton does some of the most stupid shit to be cute. WTF is this lineup to start the 2nd half???? I understand making a point, but dont send out a Lineup without a single offensive weapon....

    Yeah that shit is annoying. Two starters were playing terrible on both ends JC and Randle and he took it out on the entire unit.

    We could've possibly made a run if he just sat those two to start the half for Robinson and Brewer. Instead of trying to prove a point.

    Big difference I peeped recently from Ingram is he's going into contact when attacking the rim instead of double and triple clutching shots shying from contact.

    I remember before the last Thunder game in OKC Magic was the working with him on it pregame. Paying big dividends. Has a shot to take home West rookie of the month.


    And 10000% agree with you on a defensive specialist assistant for next season. As well as an actual shooting coach. I hate seeing Chip Engelland( best in the biz imo) Elevate the efficiency of shooters in San Antonio while our guys show zero progress and in some cases get worse.

    They need to shut down Booker remainder of the season. Doubt they have the guts to do that. Lonzo to Lakers will be what happens

    Gotta stay positive. I've been getting more and more of a feeling that things will go bad but we gotta keep hope alive.
