    I really don't get the attitude of washed up players like Camby who should have retired years ago. What exactly is the difference between sitting on the bench of a contender vs that of a cellar-dweller? You contribute nothing to the team either way. Would you really feel any sense of accomplishment by winning a championship and not playing a single minute in the finals?

    Canada takes 40% of his paycheck off the top. He wants to play for a Florida team... no state taxes means more money for Camby.

    That's a very good point. Maybe a big part of the reason why Howard is looking heavily at Texas that has no state income tax comparing it to California's 13.3%. Also, getting a ring is cool, regardless of whether you contribute a lot or sit on the bench.

    Perhaps you could say that reading between the lines, but this is not insinuated and he wanted to go back to the Knicks anyway. He verbally said he wants to play for contender.

    I would never claim to know what goes on in the mind of Marcus Camby, but I have to think that Toronto would be the worst of both. You're not really on a contender, you don't get the glamour and glitz of New York City, and you know that you aren't getting another big payday.

    Depending on how he handled his finances, that could be very important. He may be looking at mortgage payments, Bentley repair bills, and other financial obligations, and if he didn't manage his money well, that 40% pay cut could be a really big deal.
