    Awesome
    He didn't need to take a paycut for them to sign iggy. They had his bird rights. It just enabled their cheap owners from having to pay more luxury tax

    Six figure contract? More like a book of 50% off Heebok coupons and some $8K sponsorship bonus.

    How can somebody be too "injury prone" to play basketball ffs.

    All they do is run up and down and jump.

    So much for taking less to make cap room.

    Yeah, I knew that already. Was just stating that he took slightly less than he could have and they were still able to bring everybody back. I knew that Iggy was more tied into Durant, so they held off signing Durant so they could sign Iggy first. Durant will take even more less, as he should since he's the new guy in town.

    It's less than half of Durant's and only slightly more than Iggy's. Homeboy definitely deserved to FINALLY get paid.

    They all could have made a little less to make cap space. Especially if the team is going after Vince Carter and Nick Young. I mean can he even feel a difference between 36 million and 40 million?

    It's not like 36k and 40k?

    Dude, you're just not getting it. Curry could have taken the max and it wouldn't have effected them signing anyone else at all. He was a nice enough guy to still take a little less than he could have got, just to help the owners with the luxury tax. Durant was the one that actually mattered, so he held off signing until they signed Iggy first and now will take even less than Curry. But Curry deserves to be paid more because he was the most underpaid guy in the league for four years and he won a championship even before Durant.

    Curry just took the max. ESPN is calling it a "supermax" contract.

    I don't think you got my original statement.

    He could have got $205M instead of $201M. Wall is being offered $2M more per year than Curry, but he's holding off on signing it for now. Wall's been making about twice as much as Curry for a while now, even though Curry is clearly better.

    A lot of money but in Europe they been paying footballers "soccer players" more then 34 million for some time. They also don't play over 80 games a year.

    No doubt a crazy amount of money but the fact that they have like a 120 million a year cap it can make it hard on getting other quality players. KG for instance took 9 million less to keep their top 5 together.

    Even then the team could get hit with a 17 million a year penalty.
