    I need to get the signed jersey that he sent me framed. Very nice young man off the court.

    Considering Green is getting 30 million. If he has a healthy season, hell get paid.

    That is a shockingly low number for Cousins even with the injury issues.

    Exactly. We can all play out if/when scenarios for after this season, but the reality is he would have inked a $100MM plus deal after the 2017 season had the Achilles injury not occurred. He has now signed a $5MM and $2.3MM deals in consecutive seasons.

    This deal had to be more about the desire to get a ring.

    Not a huge Boogie fan, but I like this signing and situation for him.

    The Lakers still have a flawed roster of which it wouldn’t shock me to see half the team on IR through the year.

    And last year's $5MM deal was with the knowledge that he was missing a big chunk of the year due to injury and rehab. This year's deal is with the expectation that he will be playing the entire season.
