How much money has Rip already made? He's got his.
Listen, if I had 30 million already in my account and I had the chance to win another championship, I don't think I'd hesitate. How many players don't even have the chance to get 1? He'd have a legit chance at another 1 and possibly 2.
Yeah, I'd take that in a second. And it is his legacy. Legacy to family. Legacy to the game. When you go back and you look at rosters of teams that win championships, you see the players names there. They'll ALWAYS be on that team. No one can take it away.
Who'll remember you signed a contract for x amount of dollars though?
