I'm a Laker fan and I find this disturbing.
Bynum can get a contract extension this summer from the Lakers. When his agent was told that Bynum suggested he would be willing to take less than the maximum of five years, $80 million, David Lee said they would be seeking the maximum.Gangsta D:
Not gonna happen. Probably should fire his agent before he gets laughed out of Staples. He'll get max money if he avgs 20/10, the Lakers win 70 games, and sweep the Finals. Otherwise, he should be happy with $10 mil/yr. Kobe didn't even get max money after 2000 season.
As of now, he's not a max player. I'm from that old school, I believe you pay for performance, not on potential. AB improved greatly, but max money?? For averaging 13 and 10? And missing half the season? His agent must either be the same one for Ben Gordon, Luol Deng, and Emeka Okafor or he's talking with those guys. Makes no sense.
I can only think of 5 players in the league today that deserve max money.
Bynum's not on that list? lol

Sorry I couldn't resist sending that. I read it earlier and just laughed.
