    They learned from the Bulls, Wolves, and Sixers mistakes. Just pay this guy and let him smash Rachael Nichols.

    I always say this... There are only a couple of players that should be getting this kind of money; and Butler skill set does not put him on that list. There is nothing wrong with telling a player, here is 25 or 30mil.

If Beas can be what he was when he was a rookie (he won't hell be better) then the heat are coming away with another steal.

    There is when it's Jimmy Butler and he'll destroy your locker room over not getting it.

    If I'm a owner or front office, I'm not worrying about players trying to destroy my franchise, thats what lawyers and the League is for.

    I know I'm in the minority in thinking this way, but if you are not Curry, KD, LBJ 2yrs ago, AD...etc

    I'm looking at you dead in your face and say, do you want 20 or 30mil? No I'm not giving you over 40mil a season, I guess you don't really want to be here, and we'll find a team that whats to MAX you out.

    But to each their own.

    I think this is a great short-term extension for Miami and a bad long-term one. You needed that cornerstone piece locked down to attract other stars and stay relevant in the East, and you're still going to likely get that top 10-15 player caliber production from him for another year or two. But given his injury history, I just can't imagine he'll still be that same guy at 34-35 years old.

    That being said, the Heat had to do it. I disagree with anyone who says you don't pay max guys max money. Butler at $45 million is 100% worth it versus two borderline All-Stars at $22.5M apiece.

    Agreed on all counts. And for aging players itís an unfortunate economics of the NBA for teams to have to pay a guy max dollars in years he might not be a max worthy guy.

    It all depends on if you determine if that player is a Max player. I believe that there are only a hand full of true Max players.

    Organizations just need to stand tall and refuse to pay, if the skill set doesn't matchup.

    I understand this... But it doesn't make it right.
