    With this contract he'll make more than he did as a player. Amazing.

    Well deserved, he turned LerBon into a disciplined superstar and brought out the super skills in the finals.

    $35 mi; that's probably more than he made during his entire NBA player career. Lol.

    Calling it now: Lue will win COTY next season, then get fired the season after.

    I'm glad to have witnessed the birth of a coaching genius. I'll be able to tell my children someday that I've followed the great Lue since the beginning. What a time to be alive.

    Any championship winning coach should be rewarded with a solid deal, but the money is a little high. I don't see anyone else paying him that kind of money, there's no threat out there. But it doesn't affect their cap, so whatever. Not my money.

    He should give 95% of it for Lebron. He got the old coach fired and won him a ring.

    Perfect pic of Blatt haha

    In case anyone was wondering (which you prob weren't) here are his salaries as a player (source http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/l/luety01.html).

    1998-99 Los Angeles Lakers NBA $287,500
    1999-00 Los Angeles Lakers NBA $809,280
    2000-01 Los Angeles Lakers NBA $865,800
    2001-02 Washington Wizards NBA $1,700,000
    2002-03 Washington Wizards NBA $1,870,000
    2003-04 Orlando Magic NBA $1,500,000

    You can go ahead and adjust for inflation on your own...but wow the man got one of his nicest paydays mostly for just being in the right place at the right time haha. Lebron should be getting a nice thank you gift very soon
