If you are in the NBA and had the opportunity to play for a championship but you are scheduled to make
$5 million this season and it's the most money you have ever made and you will be a free agent at seasons
end but can take a buyout for say $1 million to get on a championship team would you take buyout? or keep your money?

I would love to say "I would give up the money for a championship" but I can't really say I would turn down 4 million dollars if I was a mid-level role player in the league... it's a good amount of money

I would probably do it though, assuming I'd get another contract of a few million/year, I would be able to live comfortably with that.

you should lower the money because 5 million is a lot making the question easier. But ill take the money but if it was 2 million that would be tough but i might take the ring depnding on my role.

  good point... I just had this discusion with a friend when i heard about Raja Bell was not in discussions to get a buyout
and I was thinking dude is hurt and in the last year of a contract that pays him 5 Mil
he may be out the league come next year depending on his injury why would he take a buyout.

Just sit out get healthy and try to make a squad next year was my thinking just wanted to know what NT would
do if in the same situation.

I think a tougher question is would u wanna be know as one of the greatest at ur position (barkley,malone,stockton) and never win a ring

Or be a solid role player on a championship team (kukoc, manu)

If I were older and in the last half of my career, I would take the buyout and pursue the ring.

You'd be crazy if you think raja bell woudlnt have a team next year.



Every championship team needs a role player, that knows their role, and succeeds at it.
