the guy gets paid MILLIONS, then gets confortable and begins to shit his money away, gain weight, and become an absolute bum of a player.
years later, he's broke and only wants back in the league because he cant pay his bills, so then and only then, he decides to get into shape.
what kind of mentality is that? theres no love for the game there... only love for money.
heres a guy that may play well, only to get another decent contract and piss it away and pack on the pounds again when he's comfortable.
this is the reason the league needs to implement salaries based on conditions, or incentive pay, like they have in the NFL...
in order to get paid, Curry would have conditions based on weight, stats, etc.
only then would i want to take a chance on giving him any kind of lucrative contract.
i hope the lockout brings something like this into play. players are motivated by money, and they wont get free-rides anymore, they will have to produce in order to make their money.
