    Almost five years to the day Brad announced he was leaving.

    Four years. Brad's departure was announced July 3, 2013.

    Yep - as an accountant, I cannot do math unless I have a ten-key.

    I always hope my accountant under-calculates. . .

    He could fund a new arena and still be a millionaire. Heck at $375,000 a game he could refurbish the west gym in a week.

    GH has already made just shy of 58 million and will make 130 more over the next four years. Of course, after agent fees and taxes, he's not taking home much more than half, but he will have netted around $100 million by age 31. He doesn't seem like a big spender, so my guess is that he'll have something close to that in assets (assuming he's getting any return at all on all that money) at age 31.

    And the crazier part is: a) In today's NBA, he may make another $100-200 million more from age 31 to whenever he retires; And b)this doesn't account for endorsement deal earnings, which are sure to become more lucrative now that he's in Boston. With proper management and relatively reigned-in spending, he could easily be worth 200-300 million dollars at age 40, and with passive investing and average returns, he could be a billionaire before most of his Butler peers are retired.

    It's truly a staggering level of wealth. And yes, it'd truly be nothing to float his alma mater 2-4 to kickstart funding for an athletics training center. Of course, he certainly doesn't owe the university anything (he made it an incredible amount of money in 2010). But it'd sure be nice!

    Didn't GH donate to refurbish the locker room area?

    yes, I also think the film room is named after him because of his donation? If Brad and GH win a championship in the NBA, I would like to see another donation but he is not obligated to. He has already donated and just the exposure those two have made for Butler is priceless.

    Wait...what? I don't begrudge Hayward going wherever he wants, but to say that what he did was great and Paul George was somehow wrong is ridiculous. Paul George left the Pacers with 100 times the return that Hayward did to the Jazz. And to believe that he struggled with this decision is absurd.

    The Pacers got a #2 draft pick and a #11 pick for George. For all his supposed love for Utah, Hayward left them with nothing at all...after they traded for Ricky Rubio to make him happy.

    Except that he's willing to do a sign and trade with Utah if it's needed. The real question is why would he willingly harm the team he's going to if his goal is to win a championship? Literally makes zero sense for him to do it, regardless of how he felt about the place he was leaving. You're looking at this from the team's perspective, which is fine, but they had their chances at least with his previous contract to keep him there for another year rather than letting him become a restricted free agent (or, if the one report was accurate, trade him at his request before this past season and get something back in return).

    In Paul George's trade, the Pacers got a player who's going to suck up a big chunk of their salary cap for the next 4 years while being just good enough to make them mediocre in an awful Eastern Conference, which is actually worse than being terrible and accumulating high draft picks year after year if you're not really competing for a title. Where Oladipo was picked doesn't give any indication how he is as a player, and even if George and Westbrook leave the Thunder after next year with nothing, they'll still be in a better position to rebuild (IMO) more quickly than the Pacers with Oladipo and a backup big.

    The Pacers fully committed to George last time around, gave him full max, and he burned them. Utah balked at maxing Hayward last time and got stuck with Charlottes RFA offer sheet, losing Hayward an additional year of guaranteed money under contract. They screwed themselves on that one.

    Why is forcing a trade better than leaving in free agency? What the Pacers got in return should not at all dissuade anyone from thinking what George did was awful. He was shooting ideas with potential roster moves with Pritchard literally a week before his people leaked that info.

    He could rebuild the west gym and be a millionaire....every single pay period.

    His gross pay will be like 2.2 million a check. If he were to give $10 million it would go down to $1.33 million gross per period.

    Gave me goose bumps reading that. Maybe lightning will strike twice and LJ will find another talent like Gordon under a hidden rock again.
    I am a BU grad and lived in New England for a decade afterwards following being drafted, so both are my favorite teams on each level.

    For those of you who weren't aware, Hayward suffered a gruesome looking leg injury in the 1st quarter of the game tonight. Would be shocked if he came back this season.
