The Case for Paul George NOT Getting a Max Contract

When I hear everyone talking about Paul George's new contract, it seems like a given that he is going to get a max deal... My question is why? We want to win a championship, but finding the right pieces with an ever changing salary cap is difficult. I believe the best plan for the team is to not sign Paul George to a max contract... Hear me out!

Money, money, money... The world revolves around money. When you think about it, it's just paper... It's really meaningless. Once we switch to the gold standard, this paper will be for the most part, useless unless backed up. Taking all of this into account, this is what I think Paul George should do: sign the qualifying offer, and then sign a long term deal for the league minimum. The league minimum is still a lot of money! A lot of useless, useless money... Plus we could help out the team! We would have a lower salary cap and be able to sign a better bench. Signing Paul to the minimum is what's best for the team. Now I know he may not like that amount of money, but perhaps we can also give him some stake in the team and a cut of concession sales.

Ron Paul brings up some good points on the federal reserve... can we really trust a corporation that is very secretive with all their info to print money with no tangible value? The Federal Reserve can simply print any amount of paper "money" they want! There is no barrier to what they are doing! We have to switch to a gold standard to back up this paper. Thank you.
