Thats how much money Rashard Lewis is going to make over the next 6 years.  Is it just me or is that a little bit on the crazy side, I mean, 19.5mil/year for Lewis?? I wanted him in a blazer uniform but not for more than half of that. WOW. Did they really need to give him that much money, thats KG, Kobe and Shaq kind of money.

Heres the story: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/orl-lewis12a07jul12,0,7850468.story

What is really crazy about Lewis's deal is that it is scaled to get bigger each year. He is due to make 15.6mil this year but it sky rockets to 24mil in his 6th year!! He will be aproaching 34 years old before his 6th year of the contract and has already tended to be a little injury prone. Do they really expect him to get better every year?? He strikes me as someone who is peaking right now and ready to start the down turn. What all of you guys think about the deal?
