and it may not be about money, but no ones going over to europe to leave home and play when they are already filthy rich... so i totally see him joining LA if they pony up the cash...
I think he wanted a multi-year contract. Olympiacos offered him something like 4.5-5 mil a season for 3 seasons and he turned it down. He would have been a GOD over there. They would have worshipped him. They would have given him his own driver, his own decked out house, everything. He could have gotten the loot if he went to Greece. So I don't think it's the cash. Besides, if you had your choice of team and you say it isn't about the money cause you have enough already and just want a shot at a title, where would you rather go? LA or home in Detroit?
