"I left the Forum and drove off in my Rolls that night thinking one thought - that [Paul] Westhead must die." - Spencer Haywood, reflecting on the day he hired the Mafia to put a hit on his head coach. (Really.)
The final year of Jason Terry's contract is only partially guaranteed. Only $5 million of $10,658,000 is guaranteed; the rest becomes guaranteed dependent on how many minutes Terry plays. Terry's contract will become guaranteed if he plays in more than 60 games and more than 1,500 minutes next year; if he doesn't, and he's waived before next July 15th, then whoever owns him could get a break of a few million dollars.
I'm telling you this because Boobwar is making Terry available.
Meanwhile, the source of the Nets' streak is not immediately obvious. The four different wins have featured four different starters, as injuries to Deron Williams and Kevin Garnett are forcing them to be in and out of the lineup on a nightly basis. There is little consistent about the rotation - Reggie Evans can either start and play 30 minutes or record a DNP-CD, Jason Terry's usage is similarly unpredictable (and his play significantly ineffective), and the duo of Andray Blatche and Alan Anderson do not provide much consistency even with their more consistent minutes. Both can be game changers, but both can not turn up at all - whichever it is, both will probably shoot on every touch anyway.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
