Is it just me or is this guy EXTREMELY overpaid?
Can a team with Nic Batum as its second highest paid player be expected to be a serious contender? A serious anything, really? His game has never changed. He plays defense and looks to pass. Is that really worthy of an $11 million per price tag?
Friends try to convince me of how valuable he is but I've never seen it for one second. Is there any other SF's out there who can play defense, pass too much, and not be aggressive for less? To me it seems like Portland could get a lot better spending that money on a decent starter and another really solid bench player.
Am I crazy?
