View Full Version : Sacramento Kings Pay Sean May $100K to Exercise

10-01-2009, 11:41 AM
If your boss offered you a $100k to shed a few lbs., you would be damn sure you figured out a way to make that happen, right? No doubt you’d be working out in the a.m. before work, after work, during your lunch break, eating only asparagus, ordering crazy exercise machines from late-night infomercials, whatever it takes.

Apparently the Sacramento Kings had an incentive clause put in Sean May’s contract that would automatically pay him $100,000 if he made a certain weight by yesterday.
From Kings’ beat writer Sam Amick’s Twitter feed: “Sean May made weight today - 261 and 100k for his hard work.”

Yes, we’re happy for Sean that’s he’s getting himself healthy and resurrecting his NBA career. That is great for him and his family. It is kind of crazy though that a guy who runs and plays basketball all day for a living, who can clearly afford a personal chef to make him healthy meals, and who has unlimited access to state-of-the-art NBA facilities and trainers, needs to be paid extra to get himself into shape.


I havent seen this here but it pretty funny i wish some one would pay me that

It wasn't a $100,000 bonus in addition to his contract if he weighed under 265 pounds. The deal was that if he came in at 265 or lower, his $884,881 deal would become fully guaranteed. So basically, $100,000 of his deal was not guaranteed.

Something needs to motivate this guy to perhaps be the player he was hyped up to be. Maybe its money.

The problem for Sean May has been injuries. He's had to have surgery on his knee pretty much every summer since he's been in the league, which means he can't work out as much as he would if he was healthy. That's why he's had trouble with his weight.

I like you
