Nick Mason's tweets mean more to me than the "dumb", "uninformed", "he's making a mistake", posts I've seen on this thread.  At least he has a finger on the pulse, unlike all the life coaches on here!

Why did the Morning Rush bring Mason on as a regular?  Dude is TERRIBLE.

How the hell can he do that?  I guarantee I make twice what the highest euro guys make.  I'm 42 and still having to work full time for the next 20 years.  He must have played in the NBA some to make that kind of money.

If you make twice as much as the highest euro guy, then first, congrats, then second, if you still have to work full time for the next 20 years, you're not doing something correctly.

Returning to the subject of Macon, I see in another thread that Qualls is playing in Israel. Do we think Macon is better than Qualls? What is his likely destination if he goes overseas (which we are told a couple of posts ago won't happen anyway)?
I have no idea what Qualls makes, but I am sure him tearing his ACL and then getting arrested for marijuana probably hurt his stock in any league he was trying to get into. The ACL probably more than the other overseas, though.

But these players won't pay this.  The teams take very good care of them.  They won't pay rent, utilities, gas or for even a car.  All that is part of the deal. 


You again, are assuming that everything is ideal and that all teams follow through.  That all too often, is not the case.  You are making a HUGE leap by grouping all players and all contracts into the same bucket.  A guy that has played in the NBA and a guy that was not drafted or even considered for the draft, will be treated completely differently.  No offense but guys like these are a dime a dozen.

You have not read ALL my post on this subject have you?  I said that I'm assuming these players have done their due diligence.  If they know they can secure a favorable contract in Europe, then go.  If they cannot, then stay.

Furthermore, in general, most posters think that Euro players are somehow living in poverty.  Maybe a small percentage are, but, again in general, they are well taken care of one way or another.

Now, if these two players have not done their homework and they sign a bad euro contract, that's on them.  If the best they can do is a bad euro contract, they should come back.

Oversaes is a crap shoot unless you play in the biggest leagues. It's that simple.

To be fair the "is macon coming back?" and "why didnt moses get invited to the combine" tweet was more of a joke to Nabors because that is what everyone asks.
yes...I get that.

Again, I just posted Mason's tweets regarding the topic of the 2 players possibly leaving early over the last ~2 weeks.

I know what you did. However, that tweet was a joke with Nabors, so was completely irrelevant because it doesn't prove he does or doesn't know anything. Someone who does not understand could read that tweet you posted and not know it was a joke, so I was pointing it out.

Who has time to read all of anyone's posts...  I would never assume an 18-23 year old has done their due diligence.  That is error #1. 

I doubt you actually know how most European players are taken care of.  It takes several players to make a team and you might have read or read about a few players.  That leaves the majority that you nor I have ever heard a peep about.

If you don't have the time to read what I say, then how can you judge what I wrote?

That's like reading one sentence in a chapter and thinking you know that entire book.

The bottom line is this:

These two, like every other player contemplating this, need to do their due diligence.  If they can sign a good contract, go.  If they cannot, then stay. 

If they don't do their research, that's on them.  Nothing you nor I can do about that.

Lastly, everyone thinks Euro guys are taking advantage off and live a destitute life.  Maybe a small handful, but most do not.

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Macon pass out at 31 Flavors last night.

Macon needs to lobby NCAA for a 5th year of eligibility and stay 2 more years.  Statistics show people with a masters degree earn 20% more than people with a bachelor's degree.

Great - you make over 3.$M euros/ year.  Why work another 20?
