If a player on a regular contract (non-g) like Price/Ellington were cut while hurt - they'd get their full season $- Appling summer contract

LeBron James: Bulls are a team that's much better than us right now sportando.com/en/usa/nba/138…

Bill Reiter

Bill Reiter

Not sure which is more impressive about LeBron's time in Miami: How he learned to win championships, or how to win the optics game.
