They are both very overrated.
If Mike D isnt going to use nate the way he can be used.. then trade him.
People should at least kind of know what they're talking about. No wonder people keep coming up to Canada all ignorant.
60% plus of your salary goes to taxes? It's not 60% plus and what does go to taxes is made the same as any other NBA player because they have accountants. You just start out with a different tax structure.
When they talk to players that have left, in most cases, they wish they hadn't.
Vince Carter re-signed here on his own free will. He then left when he wanted Dr. J as the GM and instead they picked a crappy GM. Tracy McGrady left before because both he and his mommie said point blank that Vince was getting all the attention and he was getting the blame when they didn't win. Bitch! Damon Stoudemire, who left on his own back to Portland is now warning players like Chris Bosh to re-think, because he wishes he stayed. Marcus Camby was mad when he got traded, Mo Peterson ran over and kissed the center floor decal when he arrived back in Toronto, Charlie Villanueva said he wanted to stay for life and was very upset when he got traded. In the summer, among the players who visit Toronto are SHAQ, T-Mac, Zo, Magette, Brand, Iggy, Finley, Rip, Jalen Rose, Okafor, C-Webb....but I guess they must not spend anything because of all those high taxes?
The Jays won back to back World Series in the same fashion as other big market clubs. Why wouldn't they, being the 4th largest market in North America behind only L.A., New York and Chicago. They payed big money just like the Yankees, Lakers, Cowboys, etc. And Andre Dawson played for Montreal.
The NHL's Maple Leafs make FAR more money than any other hockey team and the 6 Canadian out of 30 NHL teams carry the low budget, low payroll U.S. teams by pulling in 40% of the revenue. *ahem* That means a pay cut if you leave to go south.
i think, there is only one reason why duhon is still starting and getting so many minutes, and that is because lee is going to get dealt so mike leaves them out there so they can stat pad together.
another thing; mike dantoni is so overrated as a coach its not even funny.calderon was busting our ass and he he didn't even bother putting dougie in.
I'm not sure if I should put my anger to Duhon when D'Antoni is the one who keeps playing him.
