This coming season the new salary cap will be $53.135M. There are currently 17 NBA teams that are over 53M and most of them are not trying to add on salaries. Now my understading is that there are stipulations in the salary rule that allows teams to go slightly over the cap but not 100M over. I hear what you're saying about us being in caphell for four years but really it won't be that long. Once Houston and both Roses come off we will be just over 50 mill. This can happen in two years.
I beleive Labron James is no fool. He took a lesser deal for a reason. James may come to NY in 3 years so we've got to be ready. This is all apart of Isiah's master plan. You guys can talk that fire Zek bull$h!t if you want to but dude is a vissionary. Thomas brought in a young runing team with the future most dominate center in the league. That's right! Shaq will be gone and Duncan's game by then will begin to take a downward spiral. So there will really only be Yao and Curry. Now add in Labron James to this squad in thee years with low salaries and you've got a championship team. For this reason I say stay away from the Martin's of the league.
