Fresh off signing a five-year contract extension with the Bulls worth nearly $95 million, Derrick Rose is said to be closing in on another lucrative deal.

Actually?

Lucrative is seriously underselling it based on the figures dribbling in to us.

One industry source insisted to ESPN.com this week that Rose's new shoe deal with adidas will easily crack nine figures and could legitimately approach the $250 million range -- as in $25 million annually over a 10-year span -- in what is known in the shoe game as a "lifetime" deal.

How can the reigning MVP possibly command those kind of dollars as a shoe endorser? Here's how: Rose, as it was explained to me, is adidas' only counter to Kobe Bryant in China. I'm told Rose already outsells LeBron James there.

O________O

I presume deals like this have all sorts of injury clauses?

according to Rick Carlisle, Lamar Odom is on an "action plan" to get into shape

naw those shoe deal numbers are well known to be bullshit for the purposes of publicity

I mean think abt it

"I don't know what that was," center DeMarcus Cousins said. "Running the offense coach tells us to run. Just doing what coach say. Got to do what your coach say."

Tyreke Evans, who scored 14 points on 5-for-13 shooting, seemed even more out of sorts.

"I just try to get open as I can and create," Evans said. "It's no real set for me, nobody really in the offense. Just pass, cut. We lost; nobody really knows what to do. I think that's what's really hurting us right now.

"We just look lost," Evans said. "We're just playing off our natural talent to get our points. It's terrible right now. We've just got to figure something out."

Gotta agree with them; the kings offense seems pretty random and I don't think that's a good idea for their roster.

Matt Armstrong, Sunday, 1 January 2012 19:14 (ten years ago) link

Would be interesting to see them try the Triangle.

Matt Armstrong, Sunday, 1 January 2012 19:15 (ten years ago) link

would be interesting to see them in therapy, you need to seek help kings

Cooper Chucklebutt, Sunday, 1 January 2012 19:16 (ten years ago) link

belated congrats to the celtics for getting in the win column this weekend

This Timberwolves season feels so exactly and creepily like the last one that it's hard to get excited :/

SMH

DeMarcus Cousins has demanded to be traded. In the best interest of our team as we go forward, he has been directed by me, with the support of management, to stay home from the New Orleans game tonight.”

wow

Cooper Chucklebutt, Monday, 2 January 2012 00:03 (ten years ago) link

really starting to wonder if Odom has some personal/substance abuse problems going on

Matt Armstrong, Monday, 2 January 2012 00:29 (ten years ago) link

@sam_amick
Cousins' agent, John Greig, tells SI.com: "DeMarcus never demanded a trade. I'm surprised the Kings, if they believe the player wanted..."

@sam_amick
Greig: "...a trade, wouldn't have made a phone call to his representative. Maybe Westphal is just feeling the heat early this season."

Matt Armstrong, Monday, 2 January 2012 00:31 (ten years ago) link

sacto fans regret lobbying to keep team around

cad, Monday, 2 January 2012 00:56 (ten years ago) link

Woj: In loud exchange with Paul Westphal on Saturday after NY loss, some Kings heard DeMarcus Cousins yelling, "Trade me now," sources tell Y!

clay, Monday, 2 January 2012 01:07 (ten years ago) link

i don't think he gets that you're supposed to be a good player to be able to demand a trade
