Chandler Parsonson Dirk taking a huge pay cut to get him: "That just shows what kind of guy he is. Dirk is a true professional.''
Dirk made $22.7 mill last yr. This year he'll make a little over $8 mill. Marion made $9.3 mill last yr. This year he'll make. . .
Dirk is an awesome guy and a terrific player. But he belongs in the Barkley/Malone/KG tier and not the Duncan/Shaq/Kobe tier. That's all.

Another reason stars should come play with Dirk. He's taking less money so you can get more money. And he doesn't mind if you're the star.
