Same Old Story, With A Twist...

So, another restricted free agent bolted from Atlanta because the Hawks brass was too cheap to lock up the sparkplug sixth man who helped us push the current world champs to seven games, soemthing the Mighty Lakers couldn't do.

Wait a second.

The Hawks WANTED to re-sign him?

They were going to MATCH any offer from a team that wanted him?

They offered him a 36 million dollar deal?

And he's going to play in Greece? What is the world coming to? Of course, he negotiates with a team that Atlanta doesn't even have a chance to match, because they are OUTSIDE THE NBA!!! Plus, how does the sixth man on a (let's be honest) not very good basketball team garner the largest contract in Euroleague history?

Screw it, I'm going to Greece too.
