If there's anyone who would know about loyalty, it's the Seattle Supersonics Oklahoma City Thunder.

Reportedly, Dwyane Wade has agreed to sign with the Bulls. Didn't think we would ever see him outside of a Miami Heat uniform, but as a Magic fan I say good riddance.

He felt like the Heat screwed him according to reports. He's just collecting a pay check. I don't think he believes the Bulls are real contenders.

Exactly. .

Chicago wasn't going anywhere before he signed and they aren't going anywhere after..

Just a paycheck until next summer because the deal has a player option after this season...

I understand these superstars signing two year (read one year) deals but what the hell does D Wade think he's going to be getting next year? He's old, regressed, and no longer a #1 option on a decent NBA roster. Nobody is (should) going to give him max money or anywhere close to that. He's not worth $25M that he was rumored to be requesting.

With the cap increases, he'll get 25 mill next year from someone. The Nuggets offered him like 52 mil for 2 years. Teams are forced to spend to get over the minimum.

Although he retired with nowhere near the pomp and ceremony, he''s arguably the best player of his era...even over Kobe. Same number of titles, performed just as well on both ends of the court and also the ultimate teammate.

Duncan is EASILY a top-10 player ever, but has there ever been as great of player land in as great of a situation?

The Spurs were already championship contenders when Duncan joined. They went 176-70 with deep playoff runs the 3 years before David Robinson got hurt in 96-97, which led to them tanking & ending up winning the draft lottery.

Only thing that comes to my mind is Peyton Manning missing the season & the Colts landing the #1 pick to draft Andrew Luck...but that's one player replacing another, not one great joining another great.

Like I said, Duncan is one of the best ever, regardless of position or era, and you can't debate that, but it's crazy to think how fortunate that situation was.

To me, what makes Duncan's greatness so amazing is his consistency from year 1 til the end. Of course his play/numbers dropped the last couple years, but not the way other greats' games fall off. I doubt we'll ever see another coach/player combo like Duncan/Popovich in our lifetime.
