    I don't have a twitter account, but I was able to read what CV has been posting.

    "I had an amazing dinner with Mr. Joe Dumars. Not to take away from any former GM I've worked with, but he's a brilliant and admirable man."

    I personally do think Joe is a pretty smart and admirable guy.

    Of course, I would think that of anyone who gave me $35 million. :)

    The cap number has been announced. Even Artest has signed his contract with the Lakers.
    So I guess this is for today

    Seek and you shall find...

    New cap = $57.7mm
    New tax threshold = $69.92mm

    Old cap was $58.68 and the old tax number was $71.15mm

    NBA.com: NBA salary cap set for 2009-10 season

    So, down a mil on the cap, but down $1.23 for luxury taxes.

    I read next year's cap might be down 5 million or more. That or the league is just trying to talk it up so that they have some wiggle room.

    "its nuts the property u can get here 4 your $ - lots of former GM execs houses 4 sale."

    Property shopping is stressful but with these prices it's worth the time.

    Still trying to get a handle on exactly what twitter is (are they twits or tweets?). Looks like a great personal marketing tool.

    From what I've read, Charlie seems like a good guy. I wish him luck as a Piston.
