I don't know. So the dust might not be settled on this entirely. I mean, this is more of a long shot, I guess. But there is So you asked about the tax thing. So the main thing is that we gave up by giving up will be, Of course, the other trade there is bringing Fournier. And we got rid of tea and a couple second round picks and use the TP to absorb Fournier. So by doing both of those trades, we end up giving away Teague Jeff Green Thais. And was there someone else? I think it's those three, mainly. So we give up around $9 million and they were taking him back, uh, Wagner and Cornette. So we take in about 4.3 million, so that sheds around $5 million. So we have this the hard cap we were dealing with, and then we also have the luxury tax threshold. And by doing both of those moves by getting rid of isis salary, we are now under the luxury tax threshold by I think it's anywhere between 1.5 to 3 million. I've been trying to find details as well. We're kind of doing this and doing this on the fly, but we're still a couple million under the luxury tax threshold and the key there is. So it's interesting if you go to danger card, who's a friend of the show. If you check out his Twitter right now, he's kind of a almost a bigger meltdown. And you are fungus because of he's freaking out. I saw a couple of tweets and, uh, I don't know. I just don't I guess I don't understand. Yeah, I probably should, because I just can't make sense of all this. I mean, he's out there and he's like, I cannot express in words how fucked we are right now. That's his. I'm like, Why, though? Because Okay, so what does that mean? If we're like a million below the luxury, like, What does that mean for me is like a fan, like, does that mean that we that means we can't sign people or like, does that mean like, that's That's just what I don't get, like the money side and with quick or whatever, like I don't know, man. The tax bill, The tax bill is cumulative, So we entered the we go above the tax threshold, and then our tax bill accumulates year on year. And even these billionaires were grass back and the like have a limit to how much taxes that can pay eventually. You know, if we let the tax bill accumulate over a 3 to 5 year period, then they're paying a shit ton of money for it. Saying that while the Nets and this form of the Lakers are around, might not be bringing us in a championship. So from them, from their perspective as an investment, it might not be a good position to be in. We are under the tax threshold at the moment, and I did some digging a read through all the tweets and replies everything from data cards, perspective and it looks like, Yeah, we are somewhere between one and $2 million under the tax threshold currently, which is great. But for me and Tatum, between them have some incentives. So Fournier has a playoff incentive. I believe it. If he makes the second round, he gets an extra 450 k potato. If he makes an all NBA team, he make some extra money as well and if both of those guys hit those incentives, which are kind of likely to If the team performs the way that we expect them to, then that actually pushes us us above the tax threshold. So we we begin that cumulative, um, tax bill growth for lack of a better term. And we do so without really being a competitive, competitive team like we're not really a contender. But we're not really waving the white flag either, but just kind of sitting in mediocrity for lack of a better term. And yet we stand to maybe pay this tax bill. So I think that's maybe what's triggered the meltdown there from Danger CART. It makes sense because he's like the one guy who actually digs deep and finds those numbers. Um, but like from the fair perspective, was fucking excited to have 48 on the tape, right? It's yeah, for two second round picks. We actually got him cheaply, and it was finally a trade that Danny Ainge was willing to pull the trigger on because he came cheaply enough. And I think that we can maybe be excited to watch, sees games again and have this whole bench lineup plugged right, Presuming that he comes off the bench in the first place, we've actually got some shooting. We've got a little bit of size that I believe he's like, 67 Um, I don't know. It feels like Jeff takes gone aside from the whole taxing, it feels like Happy days. I don't know how you guys feel about the the 48 signing. What about your phone Goes, um, I really like it. And I would have liked it war if they didn't trade Thais At three o'clock my time today I was I was blown away by the I didn't expect them to do shit. And then I looked on wherever I looked, and I saw that I'm like, Okay, well, to to second round, Okay. Like fine. I always, Whenever we played the magic, he always used to annoy me as he would destroy us. It seemed like that guy couldn't miss when, whenever he would play us. I don't know if it was just me, but I was like, I think like he's just a good player
