And for the vet minimum! He gave up so much for a shot at the stacked super-team.

...odds are still only 9-2 for the Spurs, though. Cavs are 2-1.

I think this sets a horrible precedent for free agents take a pay cut at a chance to win a championship instead of having the billionaire owner pay into the luxury tax to get a valuable player. It's absurd and I think David West is going to regret his decision.

I agree, it's not good for the players as a whole when someone is leaving 12 million on the table to chase a ring. instead of forcing the owner to pay into the luxury tax to get said player.

Definitely I mean look at Dirk, who left so much money on the table for the Mavs to chase free agents i.e. LaMarcus Aldridge and DeAndre Jordan just for them to sign to the Spurs and Clips. How is this fair to Dirk and what example does it set for other future all stars? If you want a ring you have to give the owner a break on luxury taxes look at all these other all stars and great players who did just that.
