      i read on espn.com where the clippers can offer kobe bryant a contract of $135 million for 7 years (that's over $19,000,000 a season!), with elgin baylor quoted as saying they will give him a maximum contract...

      plus he's not even 26 yet, so realistically he could sign another megabucks contract when he's 32-33 years of age...

      holy moly...

      Actually, it s the Lakers who can offer that. Clippers can only offer six years and $100 million. Somebody asked about how players age -- it varies by

        Somebody asked about how players age -- it varies by position. Point
        guards have the shortest shelf life, while guys in the 6-10, 6-11
        range like Clifford Robinson and Rasheed Wallace last forever. 7-
        footers would last even longer -- the guys with the very longest
        careers are all 7-footers except for Stockton and Malone -- but
        they're much more prone to injury, so on average their career is
        shorter.
