It has nothing to do with actual dollars and cents. My belief is that representative of Adidas straight up and told Dwight, "we want you in New York, if you go there you will get Derrick Rose's contract, if you don't you will not." Numbers probably weren't discussed, and Dwight is too much of a meatwad to think it through any further than that.
