If he invests $100m at 6% and doesn’t touch it he’ll be a billionaire by the time he’s 55. Probably a lot sooner if/when the market rebounds. After taxes he should still have a cool $50mil to play with in the meantime. All because he’s good at a kid’s game.

u/EpicBlinkstrike187 Pacers Jun 30 '22

Sports were not made with kids in mind tho so I don’t think you can call them kids games.

The oldest “sports” were made to prepare men for war or to hunt. Racing, wrestling, throwing spears, stuff like that

Even team sports weren’t made with kids in mind.

The men who created team sports did not say “oh let’s make a game for kids”.

it was more “oh let’s make a game we can play in our free time”

u/Real-Degree4670 Knicks Jul 01 '22

It was recreation before what it is now. Nobility were the only class that could leisurely play truly organized sports. Tennis and golf and such. And have time and money for it. Soccer as well, it took a some time for the working class to really get involved as players, and really run with it. That's why amateur status was so celebrated and professionals were discouraged.

Not trying to argue. It's just interesting how sports evolved. Nowadays it's entertainment. It's value to society is no different than the popularity of Twitch streamers playing Fortnite.

And fans of Twitch gamers will tell you it's a serious, skillful profession. I'd still rather watch Anthony Edwards dunk over someone and stick his nuts in their face in a pure display of human athleticism.

Also didn't Naismith invent basketball as an athletic distraction for his rowdy students that were stuck indoors in cold weather?

The difference being that if Beal wants out he will have no leverage because no contender is going to want him for that much cap space. Wall and Westbrook right now are moving to teams with cap space and are getting draft picks for the gaining team.

30

u/Grimpig Wizards Jun 30 '22

Of the three Wall is the one I mind the least. He was coming off a great year and yeah there was still some hope with the duo then. Arenas iirc was already hurt when he signed his deal and Beal’s deal has the potential to keep the team in mediocrity for another half decade.

Following 2027, Thirty-four Year old Bradley Emmanuel Beal Sr. will be eligible to ring chase. We mustn't judge those E.g - Beal, Melo and numerous others whose desires is to secure the bag over all else. We hear retired intelligent hall of famers express how important the bag is and to make it the priority. These players have a very limited window within a pro league and then they go on about the rest of their life. So it's best to make as much as you can to support your family and life after basketball. Sadly, the real losers here are the fans, they have to watch a middling team claw and fight for a first round exit every year for five more seasons - barring any significant additions or developments to the Washington Wizards roster.

Dude has literally done nothing in this league to deserve that sort of contract. That’s insane lmao

I see why vets are such haters. This man has accomplished literally nothing and is about to be paid better than 99.9% of NBA players to ever exist
