    Indeed. It seems the Trotters might need to get everyone involved in the act anyway. If he signed with the Washington Generals then he could really be himself.

    What the hell do the quivering masses expect for a lousy $378K per game? It's hardly worth suiting up.....

    I'm really bad at decimal points, so I did see this.

    I think it's only $37.8k per game. And that's before taxes too!!

    :MusicBigGrin:

    So, total league salaries last year divided by points scored is $8,731. That's how much it cost to score a single point.

    So, $3.1MM / 8.731 = 355

    355 / 82 = 4.3.

    So, if AI were to score anything over 4.3 points per game, he would be a steal.

    Re: Memphis gets rolled..

    So all he has to do is take it inside and dust the floor with his hiney 3 times a game and the Grizz are in the bonus?!? Geez - that mi amigo is a steal. I guess that's just about 19k per shoe tied per game?

    He was averaging about 22 minutes per game, so he was pulling about $1727 per minute, what's he complaining about? His earnings per minute decrease for each additional minute played, he should've been trying to play 3.7 minuters per, then he'd be pulling a cool $10,000 per minute!

    $3.1MM doesn't go very far in the NBA these days.
