It sounds kid of out there at first, but there was so much talk about Kevin Durant's mythical "LA or New York market" clause in his shoe contract that was going to bump up his salary


I know this rumor floated around, but I don't really buy it. When you look at endorsement deals, the size of the city doesn't correlate to who makes the most money. From what I've read, most shoe contracts are based primarily on bonuses for accomplishments, like making an all-star team.

You could hire them to do LA tourism ads and pay them $50M for a 30 second spot.


The NBA is onto this sort of thing. After Dirk retired, the Mavs could hire him as an assistant coach at an average assistant coach salary, but if they paid him $10 million the NBA would consider it cap circumvention and a delayed payment.

Heck, when Rodman joined the Mavs late in his career, he stayed in Cuban's guest house -- and the NBA required Rodman to pay market-value rent so he wouldn't get free accommodations outside the bounds of his contract.


I should have wrote "The pac" instead of "you". It wouldn't be anyone officially associated with the team. I didn't ever really buy in to the shoe deal thing either, just trying to play some angles.
