    So is Kawhi Leonard worth about 300+ million?

    Wonder what he would get?

    apparently he is more valuable than curry and durant. I mean he did lead Houston to the playoffs this year. That's worth something right?

    This guy disappeared in the biggest game of his career.

    Don't be surprised if he turns into Gilbert Arenas.

    He's not even that good.

    This is sad and perverse.

    Guy will be making a half mil a game.

    Sickening. Not jealousy, this is immoral.

    Makes sense. Guys signs the biggest contract ever even though he's about the 112th best player ever.

    The league is raking in record dollars. They distribute it among the players unlike the NFL. Less players, more distribution equals crazy salaries. The owners are making big money as well. The entire league is doing very well. I'm not hating.

    Harden also has the $200 million shoe deal as well. I hate watching him play but he making sick money.

    Good for Houston. Never gonna win again. Better off trying to trade him to some fool team, and stock up on assets. He will never win a thing, and he has actually had good players around him, and will again.

    I'll practice my FT shot, and dribble low then swing up, for what he gets paid a game.

    I agree 100%. I'd like to see some defense as well.

    It shows you that this league is 100% entertainment value. These GM's know he can't play defense.... but the fans love the offense. The crazy 3's... the run and gun.... and the art to get to the free throw line? lol Unreal. Kind of sad it's the only reason why he got paid. Not even a 2 way player... and got paid that much? Wow.

    Ted Cruz thinks James Harden deserves every nickel of his historic $228 million contract extension with the Houston Rockets ... just as long as it pays off on the court.
    The Texas senator was in D.C. Sunday morning where he was asked what he thought of Harden landing the record NBA deal. He gives a bit of a stump speech answer at first -- saying Harden and CP3 should give Golden State a run for their money.
    But when pressed about the dollars and cents of the 4-year contract, Cruz keeps it real ... championship or bust for that kind of money.

    People who aren't watching it are paying for it in their overpriced cable bill

    These players literally are overpaid, living large off of swindled money. Won't last much longer, maybe not even through this tv deal

    The using word "literally" doesn't magically make your opinion a fact.
