here's another good example- when is the last time a player has been offered the biggest contract ever and has never sniffed an MVP ?
Not buying it.
If never getting MVP gives Loomis the edge, why did he put the biggest contract offer on the table?
I agree several posters who believe it's all posturing at this point. There is nothing left to figure out.
Chill, it's gonna happen.
