    Nah man, no way.... he never was. Not even a top 15 all-time big man. He isn't worth jack **** now his athleticism is declining (in comparison to what he used to be). Lack of offensive prowess always prevented him from doing so. That was something he could've worked on, but hey, guess he just never gave a ****.

    True. But I still wouldn't want Howard's soft ass back here anyway.

    I thought that was the Harden/Varejao uni?

    BTW I just realised. The player who took the biggest L this year was Varejao.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBA_salary_cap

    Once you see the huge increase in salary cap next season, these massive contracts start to seem less shocking (And they should, more money is gonna find its way to players now, and it's definitely to be expected therefore that you'll see contracts that appear odd at face value).

    But as above, it's not that surprising.
