There is no way Tristan Thompson was getting the five year 94 million dollar deal contract. I’ve been saying this all last year. Now, don’t get me wrong he balled last year, as if he was another person and it helps if you have the same agent as Lebron. He said he studied a lot of Dennis Rodman film and he played just like him. Remember Rodman was the man deep in the paint for most of the 95-98 2nd three peat championship Bulls Jordan era. He wasn’t the starting forward but in 26 mins a game he averaged 8 points and 8 rebounds in the regular season. Coming off the bench he looked good with energy and power.
Then in the playoffs Kevin Love went down with the shoulder injury, which I thought was a dirty play FYI. So Tristan had to play more minutes, 37 mins, 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 1 block a game. He played solid, but not enough to get the crazy money he was asking for. I mean come on man Draymond Green for the Warriors got paid big money because he balled and they won a championship mostly off his defense. Tristan has the nerve to want more than that at the same position Draymond plays, PLEASE.
It’s great though he gets the same contract as Draymond Green five years 82 million dollars after all the fussing through last season and part of this year’s preseason .ESPN Reports Like they say get your money while you can man. Now, he has to elevate his game, get an outside shot mid-range jumper, and a better post game. If he can do that he can push the Cavs even further and possibly win a championship this year.
