That it's impossible to keep everyone.
No one remembers who came in second.
What it says is if you have certain players that are that good you do what it takes to keep them, if you have a great core it'll make your team great for years, everything around them becomes replacable. When you lose good players you have to retool, when you lose core players you have to rebuild.
Idc what their contracts are worth I don't think anyone would see having Sherman (who I think is gonna get more like 15+ per year), Thomas, and Wilson on their team as a problem lol
