    Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant were absolute busts in their last couple years, so I’m not as eager as most to sing the praises of Laker Management in making this deal. $156 million, GUARANTEED for four years’ work sounds a tad steep. The Warriors, by comparison, have made moves that ensure a steady level of success for years to come…which is the exact opposite of this purple-and-gold move.

    #6: No controversy. Plain and simple, druggies in sports are freakin cheaters. They take some kids spot that worked his butt off but didn’t take drugs. They should be banned from anything related to sports. It galls me that A-Rod is a commentator and an opinion giver. Flipping phony cheat.
