cry S#!t guys thinking about it now we could have gotten Courtney Lee. We should have traded them Trey Thompkins for Lee. Houston is obsessed with PF's,,, I think that trade would have worked! They did trade him for J.J Johnson.

We paid Crawford 25 mil for 4 years. I am positive that we should have went after Lee instead of Crawford. This is one of the signing that's makes me wonder. While I like Crawford. I would have much rather us go after lee. He is younger, a much better defender and has a better shooting percentage. We could have got him for less than Crawford. All things point to lee being a much better player and Value. That's why I am not 2 thrilled that we signed Crawford. Not that the man is bad. But because I feel we could have done better for less. I also was dissapointed that Ray Allen's tryout was cancelled. Than people ask why I blame Vinny. Not that he did bad with the signings. Just because I feel he could have done much better. Go figure. Yet everyone seems to get upset when I blame Vinny. Oh well just like someone else said. We do have Crawford. I guess we should all stay quiet and just except it!

^It took awhile for Lee to get signed. In that time, what if Crawford decided to secure a deal and lets say he signs with Phoenix. Lets say Ray Allen picks the heat anyway and Lee eventually picks Boston. Then lets say we end up with CJ Watson or Marco Belinelli. Are you going to be satisfied with that? Regardless, in the end, you'll find a way to blame Vinny. Let go of your hate

Wrong.

Lee: 4 years, $21,000,000 fully guaranteed

Crawford: 4 years, $21,350,000 only $1.5mil guaranteed for each of the last 2 years.

If they both work out great, we paid about the same. If they both suck, we saved over $8,000,000 and have a very trade-able contract.

Smart deal.

Newly reported not Wrong

it changed

Jamal Crawford's contract with the Clippers is worth $21.35 million over four years.Crawford's deal was reported to be as much as $25 million, but this number makes the contract a bit more palatable. Both year three and year four on Crawford's deal are only partially guaranteed at $1.5 million per season. He's expected to serve as the sixth man for Los Angeles. Jul 16 - 9:35

But sounds much better

Still I like the other options better,,,,

^ Nah, it didn't change... it was NEVER $25mil.

Where'd you get that? Bleacher Report? The $21,350,000 number was released a full week before you posted your $25,000,000 number. Maybe this will teach you to investigate the facts before you cite any rumor or speculation that appears to fit your own opinions.

this is why people get on clippersam. im glad we got crawford. it was similar to the lebron situation when he was a FA. we went on trying to get an interview with lebron eventhough it was almost guaranteed lebron would not be coming, and in the end the best we were to be able to get was gomes and foye. in this case, if we hadnt signed crawford, we would have seen allen end up in the heat, lee with boston and crawford with someone else. then we would have had to settle for watson, belinelli or hinrich. and then clippersam would be bitching about not getting someone better and yes, he would proceed to blame vdn. clippersam, why so much hate for vdn? aside from his coaching that u disagree with, i want to know why u despise the man? did he ever do something to u?
