I'm in the same boat. Anyone got a recap or some highlights or something?

Mitch: "Dwight is our future"... guess that means we're going all in this summer to re-sign him.
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

All Dwight has to do this offseason is say he's signing with another team, unless a coaching change is made. When push comes to shove, the FO isn't going to stick with MDA, if it means losing Dwight.

They will commit to Dwight. And once you see a healthier Dwight on his new contract, most of you are going to be happier with his performance too. This season is pretty much wasted anyway. Minor changes in the offseason, wait for Summer 2014, then build a new, young and hungry team around Dwight. Sign another star and a bunch of quality role-players who can shoot. Mitch knows all this.

I am not worried about D12 in the least. MDA might be a different story. I don't think he's a bad coach actually. At least he is more flexible then Brown and gets more out of his bench guys. But I'm not convinced he is the right choice for Dwight... maybe if we get a quick PG and a bunch of athletic shooters and cutters.

You have an awesome confidence. Nothing you've seen in this unholy disaster of a year gives you ANY pause as to Dwight?

Lets say he DOES come back next year and returns to 100%, and we get the shooters that we want. Should we look forward to the type championship runs that Dwight enjoyed during his time in Orlando?

I'm not 100% down on Dwight, but I really dont see how anyone can be 100% confident in him either.

The part I heard was Mitch insisting that they were NOT trading Dwight, and that MDA would be the coach going forward.
Vitti uttered three words that surely applies to how Bryant made two free throws on one leg, walked off the court on his own and processed his rehabilitation plan amid the pain, frustration and tears.

“That’s really cool.”

Mitch: Banking on Howard, is sure he'll be 100% next season, asked if Howard getting traded 100% No hesitation, as for Pau long pause :man10: so I'm pretty sure Pau would've been traded this season had he not gotten hurt but dude is toast come this off-season.

- Dwight isn't getting traded, our future, deserves his name on the wall and a statue outside of Staples center at the end of his career
- D'Antoni came in to a tough situation, no camp, preseason, injuries, going to be the coach moving forward
- Kobe, Dwight relationship a work in progress, same as Kobe with Nash, and Nash with Dwight

I think those were the main points
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

Thanks guys. :bow:

Interesting. I think Mitch is full of crap with that D'Antoni comment. When it comes right down to it there's only one Dwight Howard in the NBA today. There's a half a dozen D'Antonis.

The only way I can see him sticking around is if we bring in another revamped Assistant Coaching staff including Bickerstaff, McMillan, and Patrick Ewing.

I think Pau is really half way out the door, maybe more at this point.

Yeah, I think what another poster said about Pau's future is right on... if Dwight re-signs, then Pau will either get traded or amnestied since the repeater tax hit would be too large. If Dwight walks, then I guess we keep Pau.

we're not getting hit with repeater tax cause it doesn't kick in until 2014-2015 from what I've read. Our cap looks good after 2014

Well that's good news... so we still have another shot with the big 4 next year?

from what I've read if you are over the tax threshold 3 out of the next 4 season prior to 2014-2015 then you will get hit with it. Depending on how we deal with our cap in 2014, we would only have paid luxury 2 out of the 4 if we do not go over the thresold in 2014-2015 after all our signings.

What is the repeater tax? It's a clause in the new collective bargaining agreement that raises the luxury tax rate for teams that are serial tax payers. It doesn't actually go into effect until 2014-15 as a penalty, but what teams do now affects whether they'll be on the hook then. Basically, if you exceed the tax threshold in three out of the previous four seasons, you're on the hook for the higher tax if you exceed the threshold again. The "clock" began last year. The first year of the repeater tax is in 2014-15. Only teams that have been taxpayers in 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 will pay it. In 2015-16, teams that have paid the tax in three out of four of those seasons will pay repeater tax. Then 2011-12 falls off. And so it goes.
How bad is the repeater tax? At the first level of luxury tax -- up to $5 million over the threshold -- the base tax will be $1.50 for every dollar over the line. The repeater tax is $2.50 for every dollar over the line. It matches as you rise up the ladder from there -- the repeater tax is always $1 per dollar in exceedance of the threshold more than the base rate. For $20 million over the threshold, that's a $20 million difference based on whether you're a repeater or not.
Here's an example. Let's assume the luxury tax threshold rises to $75 million by 2014-15. Let's say a team like the Lakers has a payroll of $95 million -- $20 million over the threshold. If they were not repeater, their total tax payment would be $45 million, and their total payroll would be $140 million. If they were a repeater, their total tax payment would be $65 million, and their total payroll would be $160 million.
