The weird thing is that the Bobcats/Hornets had no issues cutting ties with him, Gerald Wallace and the rest of that supporting cast after one of the teams most successful seasons, but held their cards too long with the Kemba situation.  I really loved watching that team play.

Hell, if anything they've been too good to players...just the wrong ones. 

If Kemba were a true supermax level guy, he would've gotten it. The max is overused to begin with and he was eligible because he squeaked onto the 3rd team thanks to stats put up on a poo team.  Give him a competent teammate last year...and he's not on an All-NBA team.  He's getting the max he deserves though, and will earn every dime of it.  A Supermax is fine if you're KD, Giannis, Kawhi, LBJ, Curry, etc. Kemba though? A Top 25 player who had one All-NBA season and chances are he's on the downswing of his prime?  Bad for PR, but the right move.

After Stephen Jackson had played for the Bobcats, he came back with another team to play a game in Charlotte. He stopped me and asked how do players get into the arena. I was like dude you played here for a while you should know where the players entrance is. He's a dumbass but he's right this is an awful organization

Money is money. They got plenty for playing for the Bobcats/Hornets. How is that not appreciating? NBA is a organic moving business.

Khris Middleton is getting a Max. I guess the Bucks didn’t have a choice, because if you lose him, you definitely lose Giannis. Plus, no one wants to play in Milwaukee, so you had to throw him the max. Reminds me of the Batum situation a bit. Shows the talent pool for elite players is not deep, either. 

Your post is spot on.

I forgot about this guy. He’s a nobody. His most memorable moment in Charlotte was when somebody broke into his house off Carmel road and pistol whipped he and his his wife.

I agree with you that Kemba is not worth a supermax deal. I’m just befuddled that they let him go with absolutely nothing to show for it.

Middleton's contract will be a mistake, but like you said they kinda have to.  Especially with their window being now.  Also helps that their owners are thought to have deep pockets, a new arena, and may not be scared to spend.  Losing Brogdon will hurt, though.
