Would any GM be stupid enough to hand the franchise to Ron and give him a max size contract?
Don't think so
exaaaaaaaaccttllly..... which is why he is that more valuable....you get an allstar and dpoy for the cost of a role player....like i said...do a complete rundown of all the players making 6 million a year and see what u come up with (excluding rookie contracts of guys that will eventually get max or near max deals)
you take ron...and love him.....and realize hes probably the best value in the nba....and whatever issues u have to deal with-u do so....thats what good management does in a case like this....theres too much value to just throw away and let someone else reap the rewards....hes paid the price...weve paid the price....last season....that will never happen again....if u think otherwise ur not being very logical.....lightning doesnt strike the same place twice....
think of it this way....you get jack and ron for a total salary of less than what just about all the superstars are making....as management you find a way to make that work....even if it isnt easy at times....thats why they get paid the big bucks....to make things like this work....
for what ron brings hes most comparable to duncan and garnett in a lot of ways....guys that flat bring it on both ends of the floor....guys that are able to dominate on both ends of the court....take a look at their contracts....then tell me how, if ur a businessman with the pacers franchise you dont find a way to make that work....
or try this.....see what it would cost to try and get the contributions that ron brings to the floor....like him...hate him...doesnt matter....hes an incredible asset to this team....and from now on there should be no real problems keeping him on the court where he is so effective
