    Re: Celtics CANNOT use MLE

    It's too soon to say ... Danny now says he will try to get below the tax line not so much to avoid paying tax but to be able to collect a share of the tax paid by others. Had they shaved a few hundred thousand off last year they could have avoided the luxury tax and the repeater tax as well come 2014. If he manages to dump Humphries and Wallace he can still get below the line depending on what he gets back. If he's successful he will have the full MLE but he says he won't need it or use it anyway so it's a mute point.

    BTW, the C's were over the cap for 2012-13' and despite what happens by the time the 2013-14' roster is set they will have to pay a repeater tax come 2014. And you said they wouldn't cuz they were cheap .... Ha!

    Again, the moron in you is showing again.

     

    The new CBA only started in 2011. That means the 2011-12 season is the first season that you start counting for the repeater tax.

    Last season was 2012-13 season, right?

    So 2011-12 + 2012-13 = 2 straight seasons of being tax payers.

    You have to be tax payers for 3 straight seasons to be a repeater tax payer.

    If the Celts are not tax payers this season, 2013-14, then they will not be subject to the repeater tax.

    You're totally clueless when it comes to salary cap matters.

    HAHAHA

    Once again you are wrong ....

     

    http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/celtics/post/_/id/4706019/luxury-tax-in-focus

     

    The repeater tax is retroactive to years before the new CBA ... otherwise Chris Forsberg is wrong also but it wouldn't be the first time.

     

    The Boston Celtics formally received their luxury tax bill for the 2012-13 season on Tuesday and will owe $1.182 million dollars. It's the sixth straight season the Celtics have paid tax, showing ownership's commitment to spending in order to be competitive.


    But with repeater rates looming after the 2013-14 season, the Celtics could have given themselves a little bit of additional freedom for the 2014-15 campaign. Teams are exposed to those harsher repeater rates when they've been in the tax for three of the previous four seasons. That means that, even if Boston manages to get below the tax line this year, it will still be a repeater in 2014-15.

     

    This is why Danny is intent in getting below the tax line this season ... he has his work cut out for himself.

    In response to Fierce34's comment:

    Wow!

    The Celtics have the 5.15m MLE and Mployee says the Celts only have the 3.2m MLE because the Celts are over the tax apron of 71.7m.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA




    If Danny succeeds in getting the team salary below the tax line you will prove to be a moron all by yourself ... it's far too early to claim we have the full MLE cuz the team roster hasn't been finished yet. The tax is compiled at the end of the season based on players on the roster at that time ... why do you think teams dump salary at the trade deadline?

    In response to Fierce34's comment:

    Here:

    That means you can expect a trade from Danny Ainge at some point to dump some of this money, and ensure that the C's avoid going over the tax for a seventh straight season. If Boston can avoid the tax in both 2013-14, and 2014-15 (which should be much easier with Humphries $12M deal expiring and Bogans $5.1M deal being non-guaranteed in 2014-15), they will re-set themselves in the repeater category, and be able to go over the tax if they want as they (hopefully) re-enter contention.

    So you are now admitting that the three years didn't just start at 2011!  Were you wrong again????

    They could have reset last year but blew it. They will pay a small repeater tax already in 2014 but if they stay below the line they reset and have flexibility for the following two years.

    Now you can admit being wrong about a hard cap of $100K for teams under the cap and the 3 yr rule beginning in 2011 .... We will all wait for it!

    Nope!

     

    I was right all along.

    Here:

    Some Chris Forsberg for ya!

    http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/celtics/post/_/id/4706114/the-secret-gem-in-cs-nets-trade

    After waiving Kris Joseph on Monday, the Celtics have 14 signed players (including one non-guaranteed deal in Shavlik Randolph) for a total current salary commitment of roughly $71.5 million. The Celtics plan to add more salary, but also desire to stay below the luxury tax threshold of $71.75 million, which could further aid their future efforts by keeping them away from looming repeater rates. There's more roster shuffling ahead this summer. 

     

    BAM!!!

    HAHAHA

    Looming repeater tax ... they already qualified for 2014 though it will be peanuts unless they don't reset. Check his earlier post unless you are afraid to find that you are wrong again.

    No, Mployee, they have not qualified for 2014 yet.

     

    In Forsberg's earlier article, the Celts were over the tax line.

    According to hoopsworld, the Celts are at 72.2m before Joseph was waived.

    http://www.hoopsworld.com/boston-celtics-team-salary

    Obviously the Celtics will qualify as a repeater if they continue to be at 72.2m. But if they can go below the 71.7m tax line after the trade deadline, that means the Celts will not be repeaters.

    Get it?

    Now?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    But that article was made by Forsberg last July 10.

     

    Here:

    Here:

    And here's what Forsberg said:
