And still, you are making the assumption that the cap won't go down, when every indication is that the cap will go down. Yeah, the players are going to fight it, but since when has a players union ever won?

You can't look at the numbers and say it's doable when you have no clue what the numbers will be. McD's raise alone could be 3 mil.

The bottom line is that Nash isn't worth his contract, and he isn't worth the potential problems his contract might cause. Until we know what the next CBA brings, it would be foolish to add another big, long term contract.
Every single lockout in hindsight. I agree about Nash. I'd rather have Krieder's modest projections at his cap hit.
