I find it funny that if he hates your favorite teams picks than Walt hates your team. I used to think the same way when he would bash on the Jags for every little thing, but now he is only saying good things about them. Walt does not dislike one team or another he dislikes moves and action. This is one persons opinion and if you don't like it then that sucks. He still has a right to it and will keep posting regardless. *Plus as a bonus if you use facts and reason Walt will look at it from an unbiased angle and see it from your point of view. He did it when I brought up the Jags free agent grade. He even changed it to the more appropriate grade.
Toronto Raptors re-sign PF Amir Johnson to 5-year, $34 million deal
So the going rate for a backup forward who has averaged 4.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game during his five years in the NBA is almost $7 million dollars a year? Even David Kahn is laughing at this one. I am absolutely flabbergasted by the deal. When I saw this signing, I literally choked on my spit. I understand the Raptors are going to lose Chris Bosh in free agency and need some bodies to fill his void, but $34 million??? Yikes.
Phoenix Suns re-sign F/C Channing Frye to 5-year, $30 million deal
Compare this signing to the Darko and Amir Johnson deals, and it looks like a steal. Frye resurrected his career in Phoenix last season proving to be a very valuable big man in the Suns offense due to his ability to shoot it from the outside. With Phoenix likely losing Amare, bringing back Frye was a must. This does put a dent in the Suns' cap space and limits what they can do for the remainder of free agency, but they had to act early or risk possibly losing Frye.
Phoenix Suns sign F Hakim Warrick to 4-year, $18 million deal
This signing all but guarantees Amare Stoudemire will not return to Phoenix next season. Warrick should be a good fit with the Suns due to his athleticism and ability to run the floor. His game is similar to that of Frye's and even Earl Clark which makes the signing seem a little redundant in terms of what Warrick brings to the desert. With that being said, it is a reasonable contract for both sides and helps ready the Suns for life post-Amare.
