    Dolan apparently refused to offer KD a max contract lmao

    I am sure Julius Randle will be a great addition! What a dumpster fire of an organization

    Actually a pretty good move. The drop off in production amongst players coming off a torn ACL is pretty alarming. (Granted none of them had the freak athleticism and talent that KD possesses)

    Randles a nice player. I think it’s a great contract for the Knicks

    Bucks and Sixers look to be early Eastern Conference favorites for next year.

    The Clippers? Chuck, what’s the tax rate in Ka-li-fornia?

    The top marginal personal tax rate in California is 12.3% on income above about $570,000. It’s high, but lots of wealthy people find enough other advantages to living in California to think it’s worth it.

    Quite high, but it's been quite high the whole time Kawhi grew up here too.

    DeMarcus Cousins (became Cousins) signs a 1-year deal with the Lakers. Davis and Cousins are back together again.

    This certainly seems to be no concern for top athletes.  In recent years Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Kwai Leonard, Anthony Davis, and Manny Machado have all chosen to sign with California teams in free agency.   Some of them are also giving up 30 or 40 million if they had signed with their original team.  California, if it was a country, would have the 5th most productive economy in the world.  It has both Hollywood and Silicon valley.  I think the financial opportunities outside their team contracts will make them more money than they give up for signing there or for taxes, plus the life style is attractive.  You are also close to the ocean and close to mountains and close to desert.

    Those high taxes also provide more public services than other states, and perhaps the best educational system in the country, plus they are operating their state at a profit.  As DG said, lots of wealthy people feel that it is worth it.
