    Mo Harkless knew he had $500,000 coming so he stopped shooting 3's

    I love this because I love the honesty. Theres just something about this I really like hahaha. I know he could have hurt his team but he agreed to the terms and hes gotta get paid! Good for Mo!

    $500k really isn't much to him but I see why you would do it. I could see if he were a guy making a small amount but he has a pretty nice contract. I mean really, $500k is probably like $500 to us.

    I don't think love is the right word. I respect him for his honesty. But this is everything that's wrong with sports now. It's purely a business (on both sides).

    500k is still a lot. He's prob not going to get another big contract. If he's smart about his lifestyle he can make that money work for him.

    Harkless is going to get an even bigger contract next time around. He's a 23-year-old, super-athletic combo-forward who has dramatically improved his outside shot, shoots nearly at league average, can play plus-defense on the perimeter and can cover three different positions. He's a building block for the Blazers.

    If this is where he tops out (and I think it maybe) and the cap goes down he probably won't get a larger deal. Though he will get another solid deal.

    So you're mad at Russell Westbrook for getting stats and now you're mad at Harkless for not getting stats lol. No pleasing you.

    As a Blazers fan it's whatever, had this cost us a playoff spot I'd be livid but it was fine. He still contributed and we still won. Maybe this is a sign he should be taking less 3's lol.

    It's funny to me that people have a "problem" with this when every single person in here commenting on this would have done the. exact. same. thing.

    Yeah, that's a pretty good parallel.
