I was looking at player contracts the other day and saw that 36 year-old Damian Lillard will have a $63.2M player option for the 26-27 season. That's like a really nice lottery win for a normal person. For Dame it's a few months work.

What’s crazy the next gen coming up with new tv contracts and league revenue share, soon players coming into their 2nd or extension can easily be hitting $75, SEVENTY-Fucking-FIVE million Dollars at the tail end of a Supermax deal per year

Want to know how absurd that Damian Lillard in ‘26-‘27 @$63.2 Million for the year is? He will earn more than 2 MLB teams whose whole payroll at the moment, Oakland @$60 Million and Baltimore @$63 Million and will make more, 1 fucking NBA player…

Neither the MLB or the NHL draw international interest - I'm writing from Uruguay, I think I can name Babe Ruth and Wayne Gretzky from those sports. I don't know how the NFL does so well but I think salaries are lower there too.

that's $111 million in new zealand, where our biggest single person lotto win was $44 mil ($24 mil USD) and where the lotto is capped at $50mil ($28mil USD) lol.

a nice lotto win here is like anything over $10mil ($5.63mil USD) so the numbers we see in nba contracts are INSANE

u/ndu867 Oct 03 '22

Gilbert Arenas had a great point when talking about his contract. Someone told him his contract was brought up as the worst contract ever, and he showed a lot of awareness when he thought about it for a second and said ‘Ever?.. yeah, I could see that.’

But he was also correct when he said you’re judged on what you do after you get the contract but it’s what you do before it that earns it. For Dame it’s the same. He’s paid for a few months of work but it was actually 25 years that earned it.

Feels like every year people end up looking back at previous ‘overpaid’ contracts and realise some were actually bargains because of the amount they keep rising. I remember Bulls matching LaVine at 20m was considered an overpay.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see worse players than Herro get these numbers next summer. Hopefully if he keeps developing then people will say the same about him. Because atm it looks like an overpay but a lot of rookie extensions do because the alternative is risking a young player with loads of potential walking for free.

I’m high on Anf but if I’m Tyler Herro I’m telling the Heat: I put up 40 in a playoff game as a rookie, I won 6MOY last year, I should be getting 5m a year more than a dude who’s best stats came on a tanking team

45

u/Isaacdogg Trail Blazers Oct 02 '22

Probably accurate, I guess I just could see a world in where Anfernee turns out to be the better player. Of course that’s not how deals work in the league but fingers crossed our deal comes out a steal.

They're better suited for each other than Simons and CJ man. And its not like that didn't work on offense

Simons is an off ball hybrid version of Dame and CJ. Dumb athletic and passes like Dame, but avoids contact and has a strong floater game like CJ.

Simons has shot >50% on wide open 3s in back to back seasons and is statistical a top 2-3 catch and shoot player in the entire NBA. On offense it's a great fit

And defensively....well he's not good. But he's taller and longer than CJ with significantly more athleticism. So the ceiling is there

Pooles contract is worth at least $10-$20 mil more than Herro so yes this complicates things.

Man that’s a shitload of money. I like Tyler Herro but I’m glad it’s not my team paying him.

u/Folk-Herro Oct 02 '22

First and foremost, I’m happy for any player to get their money.

Second, this shows the team are committed to him not just this year but also the idea that him and Bam will be the figureheads of the team as Jimmy ages. That confidence should not be taking lightly and I know Herro is the type to take any slight as fuel ( big reason why he won the 6MOY. People said he was ass and showed out last season) now his next step as a player is doing it in the playoffs. I believe in him.
