I really don't get it, either. I realize the potential ramifications, too. I guess I wanted to see the stigma against Richards after last season. 96% of people are voting to buyout a 33/34 year old PPG forward on a 6.66 mil contract here who just had a good/great playoffs on a team that went to the Finals.
