You don't really believe the two situations are similar, do you?
Kobe was at the end of his career, with NOTHING else behind him. Zero. We were about to start rebuilding.
Horford at 34 will have mid 20's teammates just entering their primes. He will be the sage vet to help guide them along ala the old Spurs so to speak.
And Horford's money would come to get him at 29, healthy, and capable. Kobe's came AFTER a career threatening injury.
They are in no way similar or connected. So if Horford wants to sign on for 4 years, and that means we have to pay him a lot of money in year 4, cuz, that's how it works, then yes, I would be fine with it.
