    Since when does being overpaid make someone like Jamal Crawford a cancer ? If the MLE is the average salary of all nba players and its almost 6 million per year than how is someone making 8-9 and who is a highly productive player some how being overpaid ?

    About the Phx Suns – Sarver took over as majority owner in 2004, so really the good moves in drafting stoudemire and marion were never his to claim. Also the Kurt Thomas trade saved Sarver $20 million since they were still over the cap, but the really damaging thing which should be mentioned is that they had to trade away two of their future first round picks to make Seattle take on the extra salary.
    Really the Suns’ misuse of their draft picks cant’ all be blamed on Sarver. D’Antoni was notorious for using short rotations. Rookies and bench players really only got to see playing time when injuries occurred or during trash time. So Sarver’s penny pinching and D’Antoni’s coaching style/ideologue were both instrumental in bringing down the Suns. I’m not sure which wagged the dog first though.

      The Suns haven’t been below the luxury tax in years and they are still not this year.

      Phoenix has made a lot of mistakes but they’ve spent more money doing it than almost any other team. Certainly they’ve been in the top 5 or 8 in total payroll. That’s not cheap even if some of the moves have been foolish.

        Not sure where you’re getting you’re numbers from.

        In 2005-06, the luxury tax was $61.7 million, and the Suns payroll was $53.6 million. Six teams paid the tax that season.

        In 2006-07, the luxury tax was $65.4 million, and the Suns were at $63.8 million. Five teams paid the tax that season.

        The Suns didn’t enter the luxury tax territory until they picked up Shaq, and even then, they were only over the tax by $3.9 million, while seven teams had higher payroll than them.

        I would certainly call selling draft picks to save money foolish, particularly when Phoenix’s championship window closed as fast as it did.

    Something I did not realize was that luxury tax level and the salary cap are two different things. Regardless of that mistake, my memory served me correctly. Need proof? Here it is : http://www.eastvalleytribune.com/story/93612
    “Before the [Kurt Thomas] deal, Phoenix’s payroll sat at $78.5 million, more than $10 million above the league’s new $67.9 million, dollar-for-dollar luxury tax threshold for 2007-08.” So really Sarver DID save about $17 million by trading Kurt away.
