    Somebody might want to get Windhorst to check his sources.

    I understand Cleveland is operating in Luxury Tax territory, but $33.33 dollars a year for LeBron sounds a bit low, if not downright illegal under most applicable labor laws.

    17,000 more and he could get a date with an instagram model. $100 doesn't buy you what it once did.

    its crazy how Mike Conley who has never made the all star game makes just about the same amt as LBJ.

    Conley makes roughly 30.6 million a season. LBJ 33 million.

    The length of the deal makes sense, 3 years with player option in the last is fair to all parties and by making this a 3 years deal, its also showing some good faith to the Cavs fans.

    He is becoming the highest paid player in the game now and there isn't really any need to squeeze every single dollars as he is also trying to become the best ever.

    No one cares about the Sixers. Until they prove otherwise, they are the NBA equivalent of the Browns.

    Conley still owns the biggest contract in history of nba. Curry will no doubt break it, and maybe kd will break it but I'm not sure about that either next year.
