And last year, Bibby. They have overpaid their players just to keep the nucleus. And what do they have in return? Two Pacific Division Championships, not much to brag about but they do have the banners up at ARCO. And now they got Shaq's OVERRATED [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] Brad Miller. Now they are trying to find ways to cut their luxury tax this year.
Joe Maloof was on a local radio station last week talking about not going after JJ for more than the vet. minimum. I don't see him coming back to Sac next year.

Notice that they pretty much have Webber, Bibby, Miller, Peja and Christie locked away (their future starting line up)...thats not a bad nucleus, but there are no big names on that roster....Webber....please, he can barely stay healthy....way overrated and looks to be the next Vince Carter...but doesn't have the potential VC has. He is not a leader and besides Peja, no one is really consistent on this squad. Another thing to notice is that Vlade is a FA next year and if the queens want to keep him, which they should...they have to pay up again....also Bobby is a FA in 2 years and I personally think is way better than Bibby....if they let him walk...it would be a big mistake. They have a young nucleus, but I don't see it being too successful against a one or two superstar team. You have to remember that Shaq is going to sign a 3 year extension at the end of this summer which would take him to 2009 and with Kobe signing one this coming summer...the Lakers have their dynamic duo for the rest of this decade. The queens will not win while these two are together in LA. Their window of opportunity is pretty much sealed.
Here's the Laker's salary distribution:
