WTF is wrong with this dude?

WTF is wrong with this dude? 9 million for 4 years in LA with a chance to win 3 titles or a mle in miami with a decent shot at cracking the top 5 in the East? Let's see what is the better option???

I think that whatever

I think that whatever happened between Odom and the Laker's this offseason was bigger than what we originally thought, egos have been bruised and both sides are going to come out worse for it. Laker's because Odom makes them a much better team, and Odom because his chances of winning a championship decrease greatly and he will be making the same amount of money if not less.

Guru....I was right you can

Guru....I was right you can re-enter a NBA draft!

But I agree with you. If he was gonna leave LA why go to Miami. The answer is Taxes. No state Taxes so Odom keeps more money...guess he wanted more cash

The Odom camp isn't

The Odom camp isn't stupid... This is just a game of tug of war. They know his ideal situation is with the Lakers. They're just trying to get the upper hand... Gain leverage.

and for the record, less

and for the record, less STATE income taxes will not close the entire gap between 9 mill and 5.8 mill... if he got outta FEDERAL income taxes, than it'd probably come close, but he's not getting outta that.... so he's not doing it cause he wants more cash

another thing, i don't think that his entire income is even taxable in his team's state- it's taxable in whereever the game is played. I THINK. So probably half of his income would be exempt from state income taxes.

My Bad I Never knew you can

My Bad I Never knew you can re-enter yourself in the draft.......but still state taxes, he won't be losing as much as he is making with.....state taxes in Cali is 10% for anyone that has more then 1 million dollars....and he is to earn a approximate amount of 10 million making him losing only 1 million dollars still more money Miami is giving him........

I know that but California has the 2nd highest state tax. Im not saying that's the only reason he goes to Miami but it could be a factor.

This makes me also think that Miami may get Boozer.

lol sorry to get nerdy on u

lol sorry to get nerdy on u guys... i wonder what cali state rates are.... 10%? ~ I guess that'd bring that deal down to about 8 million.... IMO though, I'd much rather play with Dwyane Wade than Bryant. DWade just seems like a much better teammate.

the tax rate is 10.3% so.... 9,000,000 X (1-.103) = 8.073 mill after state income taxes

Listen I think Odom is

Listen I think Odom is waiting on this Boozer thing.

-If Boozer is a Heat, he goes to MIA

-If Boozer is a Knick, he goes to LA

What's the logic on going

What's the logic on going after Boozer when they already have Beasley, ONeal, Haslem... and now (maybe) Odom? Don't they have bigger needs in the backcourt? I donno... His expiring deal is attractive because then they'll still be under the cap, but I don't see them getting Boozer without giving up Beasley, and I just don't think that's worth it.

So.... wouldn't Wade be more impressed by the Heat snagging someone to help out in the backcourt?

Divorce or make up Sex

The East is a jungle so i don't know why he would go there for a ring?? The lakers have conference finals on paper if injuries don't happen, and a easier trip to the finals......With the heat he has other teams that are way better then him to compete with.......I think Odom and jerry buss are acting like to couple fighting......either a divorce will occur or they will have make up sex lol

HAHAHAHA mario chalmers and

HAHAHAHA mario chalmers and dequan cook? do u really think that's the strength of their team? At least we know Haslem is a serviceable big man who rebounds and defends pretty well and can knock down the mid-range....

Mario Chalmers... come on now. i'm a huge fan cuz i love the jayhawks and that was an amazzzzzing shot, but he gambles too much on defense and he still needs to work on doing more than turning the ball over and jacking 3s.

Cook... is a one-dimensional scorer... He's decent, at best.

Odom isn't known for his

Odom isn't known for his brains but Miami is a much nicer city than LA. I'm sure 5 million a year will be enough to survive.

Look at all the Wade tweets,

Look at all the Wade tweets, he really wants Odomn to comeback. Hes basically on his knees. I think if they get him they keep Wade.
