Baron Davis Deserves Big Cash

Here’s the greatest clip from the 07 NBA playoffs:

It’s got to be rough being Andrei Kirilenko this last 6 months…

Anyone else think it’s odd that there isn’t a contract extension in place for B-Diddy? Seems like this would be the perfect season for Baron to lock up the big bucks. Not that I don’t love Baron (’cause I do), but he’s likely to get hurt again if history is any indicator. I don’t think he’s worth any more than $10million a year now, but I think he’d get at least that much in an extension. For Baron, he can lock up big bucks for a few more years and not worry about injuries hampering his earning power. It would be smart to sign now.

At the same time, doesn’t it make sense for Golden State to wrap up this contract sooner rather than later? Baron’s proven he’s one of the best point guards in the game (when he’s healthy). There aren’t exactly a lot of good point guards available in the NBA either. What value would he have on the open market if he had a good year? How many teams would love to have big Baron? If you’re Chris Mullins, why wait to find out?

I can see it both ways, but what do you think?

Ballhype: hype it up!
