Lakers Make It Rain On Bynum

The Lakers made it rain on Andrew Bynum signing him to four-year deal worth $57.4 million.  To celebrate I think he should make it rain vocoder’s in the Lakers lockeroom now that he’s not dirt poor.

“With an average salary of $14.35 million instead of the maximum $17 million, the Lakers just got about a $10-million discount over four seasons (three guaranteed, the fourth at the team’s option, limiting its exposure in case of catastrophic injury). Add in another $10 million in luxury tax and the Lakers just saved about $20 million. Of course, the injury poses a risk, but which of their players doesn’t run a risk every time he goes out there? ”
