I agree, but any potential buyout is not about his performance last night....the same way if Richards plays a good game tomorrow night, that doesn't mean people eat crow and there is no way we buy him out in the summer of 2013 or 2014.

This is about whether we want to keep his cap hit on the books for another seven years after this season, and this may be our only chance for an amnesty buyout.
