The family comments came from Ainge and Wyc Grousbeck. They used the words family not me.Originally posted by <b>rowdyness</b>!
Pro basketball is not a "family" its a business. Everyone knows that. Besides its not like Vin has been around for 5 years or something. He has been a Celtic for about 1 year. I doint count the time he has been in Betty Ford clinics as time with the team. Get rid of him. He is a cancer and a major distraction for the team. He makes 15 mil a year or something like that. Screw him. If he is not a professional and cannot show loyalty to his teammates then get rid of him. I think its 6-7 games left on the countdown.
Yeah, go to user cp then edit ignore list and type (or cut and paste) the name of the user you want to ignore. Then all you have to do is hit "update list".Originally posted by <b>bballin</b>!
is there any way you can put someone on ignore?

I read the other day from Peter May, that even if we terminate Baker's contract, we probably won't be players in the FA market. We probably will only use the MLE. So, from that I think if the contract is terminated it comes off the books. If it is a buyout, it will count against the cap for the following two years (which is the remaining money Baker has).Originally posted by <b>h180ys</b>!
If Vinny's contract is terminated, will we get any cap space? If yes, how much is our salary next season?
Just in case, I was just trying to answer a post. I'm not saying we are going to terminate Vin's contract, just assuming that case how will it affect the C's.Originally posted by <b>whiterhino</b>!
I hate to break it to you all but if the Celts try to terminate Vin's contract the players Union is ready to put up a HUGE fight because as they well know there are a LOT of alchoholics in the league (they just don't admit to it like Vinny did) and the players union does not want it to be a precedent. With a fight like that it would take a couple years and by then his contact would have been over anyhow, so please stop thinking we're gonna get something here because we are not.
No one knows how any of this will work. You are just guessing.As for clearing the money, yes it does do a lot for the Celtics. Maybe not next year in terms of big free agents, but definitely down the road. It would bring them luxury tax rebate money (if there is a tax), and would be a tremendous weight off the shoulders of the franchise.
Yes, we are in agreement. My biggest fear is David Stern. He has alot of power, and historically he has done everything he can to screw the Celtics.Originally posted by <b>Truth34</b>!
I am not going to speculate as to the plausibility of the Celtics' case, but if it goes 10 the Celtics will try to terminate his contract using the "unfit to play" clause.
Whether that is successful or not is anyone's guess, as you astutely point out, but if they are successful, then it will have a very positive impact on the fiscal and basketball health of the Celtics in the future. That's all I am saying.
