He clearly did invest in this team. How you can say he didn't is just beyond me. He apparently just didn't do it in a manner you agree with, but that's not from a lack of investing as you're trying to say. How does 120+ million in contracts qualify as not investing? If we take the average salaries of their contracts we're looking at being in the 65 million dollar range this year cap wise right now, and that doesn't even count signing Barbosa. That's not too far from the luxury tax.

Also you're splitting the smallest hairs ever trying to skirt away from the 'cheap' implication.
