    It's actually a 3 year split of 18 month variable rate they're paying him. He couldn't assign a representative payee and that supposedly cost him a couple of points over the entire spread. But let's be honest, Alpha, we know it will be an 1/8th of a point at most. It's not Bosh's deal but it also doesn't have him signing 2 covenant agreements for a simple payout between him and the league's comptroller which would only lead to a bit skimming on the deals 'underbelly'. But, be that as it may, a negotiation like that can only avoid loggerheads if they can bypass the negotiators dispute over the fiduciary rights assigned to the gifting agent.

    Floyd is arguably the greatest boxer of all time. Grant Hill was an ungodly player whose career and earnings were debilitated by ongoing major injuries (including to his ankle and his lower back).

    Now compare Floyd to Jordan. Then include endorsement deals.

    NBA players have the highest mean salary in the world:

    I don't know the actual value of having a star on a top team. It probably makes them crazy money having him on the team as an item. I played with a few kids at the park and they were talking about him. Buy they could pick up a piece that costs a third of that and let Klay shoot more and win again.

    He deserves every penny, best shooter in history and all around good guy. He puts butts in the seats as the Dubs sell out wherever they go. The guy is not a sell out like so many athletes, for example he won't endorse fast food or any other product he dos not believe in. He has been drastically underpaid the last few years and has been a good sport about it. He has made the owners a ton of money. Worth every penny.

    Didn't JJ Reddick just get 25 mil a year? That guy is not worth that much. But, if that's the standard we're going by.. then it looks like Curry is worth that much.

    Curry lifted a whole franchise. Whether he is "worth" the contract really isn't the point. GS was willing to pay him the money. It should also be noted Curry was underpaid before this contract.

    GS has a 3-4 year window to win Championships. Let the champagne flow!

    And fuck Lebron.

    Incredibly (possibly, wrongly) surprised about cricket being 3rd. I understand India and Pakistan being huge markets but I never imagined cricket being 3rd, surpassing both NFL and EPL. One of the factors is likely the amount of players in each sport. Less players = higher average. Vice-versa

    That's a one year deal by a team who's just trying to fill out their cap space. It's not the norm.

    Bollywood is soaring, lately, too. Their top actors are starting to crack the top charts for salary and box office revenue, and we're talking about actors that don't speak a word of English in their films.

    Why does the NBA even have a salary cap anymore? There's so many ways around it there ought to not even be a salary cap. The whole point of the salary cap is to stop there being super teams like the Warriors who're going to win at least the next 2 championships.
