Take the money sign on the line and forget what Dwight is doing. You are your own man I bet Dwight s not worried about you.

No one is going to pay as much as you have been offered

Interns, you don't have to repeat sentences to make your point. Quality trumps quantity everyday.

Not quite.AJ is doing the right thing by waiting for Howard.Haste makes waste. If he can get a better deal by waiting for the situation to evolve a bit, so much the better for him. AJ is a smart man.

Agreed. The smartest thing for Jeff to do is let Howard set the market rate......and then go for a contract that's within 10% of what Howard signs for.

{ smh } If this is true, I'm not sure how many people knew he was a free agent to begin with... and he thinks he'll command Dwight Howard type money? X^D *Haha!* Well, at least he chose the right team.

Big AL to the Bobkittens isn't the worse move he could make. They are young & if nothing else it shows that Mike is getting better with his decision making, or better still, he's allow people that understand the business of basketball to make the decisions. Either way I like this move. Baby steps Bobcats, Baby steps!
