Is today the Wizards 09-10 video hall of obscurity? My God.... Great time capsule stuff. I had already forgotten who these guys are.

Who next on video? Maybe a live skype hookup with ex Wizards alum Awvee Storey, now dominating in the PBA (Phillipine Basketball Association) after being kicked out of the NZBA (New Zealand).

"Cartier, Cedric, Flip, your future awaits. Here's where a stint with the Wiz can take you...."

"Grant Hill never retired. He's finally back and productive, but as I recall Orlando had to eat a good part of his salary and got nothing for it. I need to fact check that a bit, but he is one player who had devastating injuries and didn't retire.

Well, for one, Hill never had an injury anywhere near as bad as Livingston. So I was thinking if that same knee blew, he'd be forced to call it quits.

But even if he refused to retire and was somehow medically cleared to play, the deal wouldnt be that big anyway. If he was injured in the 2nd yr of a 3yr/15mill deal...hardly a crippling blow to the team's finances.

Assuming you meant "nowhere" near as bad . . . I'm pretty sure Hill would disagree, given that his injury resulted in an infection that came close to killing him.

"But even if he refused to retire and was somehow medically cleared to play, the deal wouldnt be that big anyway. If he was injured in the 2nd yr of a 3yr/15mill deal...hardly a crippling blow to the team's finances."

Easy to say when it's not your money.

guys getting injured is the cost of doing business. Just shelled out $15mill for 1 season of Mike James and Mike Miller....the same amount over 3yrs for Livingston is not some huge risk to be avoided, if the team thinks as highly of him as they appear to.

Sure, if the team's operating philosophy is to keep pissing money down a hole. To say nothing of the fact that Miller and James on the last year of expiring contracts is a lot different than Livingston blowing out his knee with 2 1/2 years and $10+ mill left.

a 3yr deal means his deal is an expiring one after 2 seasons, at which point it's "a lot different."

so the risk is what, he gets injured next season and there's 1 season with him hobbling around before he becomes a trade asset?
