    Wade, Parsons, and maybe include Hayward into this as well?

    He should demand Kobe money.

    If he wants to be truthful then he should request new banners for the 2012 and 2013 championships with this on it:

    Good on the Heat for not hanging him out to dry. At this point he's not worth 15 million a year, but he opted out of his contract for the team.

    The Warriors player on the bench with the towel around his neck has the best reaction.

    15 million per year is better than I expected for DWade from the Heat. I actually think it's fair depending on whether he has a rebound year like Ginobili. We'll see.

    So he lost $7 million with the opt-out?

    PER YEAR

    he shouldn't be making anything over 10 mil a year in my opinion in his current state of having to miss 30 games a season.

    Manu gets dinged up a lot. With rest he's usually fluid. Like a 1992 Toyota Camry. Wade is flat out breaking down like a 94 Jeep Cherokee.

    A nice little 7 million dollar a year discount Wade gave them.

    The sad thing is that the Heat will be able to justify this ridiculous spending because they are in the East, and they'll still get to the second round. In the West, this kind of spending gets you on the Treadmill of Mediocrity.

    Two years $34 million. It went beyond a little crazy but Wade gets a player option on year 2.

    "The Associated Press, citing an anonymous source, initially reported the deal to be worth about $34 million but later pulled back on its reporting."

    As usual, reporters jumping the gun and then backtracking. :grin:
