Yeah, this is a basketball blog, too. In latest news, Olmypiakos (The Euroleague equivalent of the New York Yankees) are reportedly offering Chris Webber 10-12 Million over 2 years.
Needless to say, he'll never get this kind of money from an NBA team, nor this amunt of playing time. However, I'm not really sure if he's all too excited about living in Athens when he finally got to play in his hometown in Detroit last year. Nevertheless, money talks.
Bottom Line: Home and an NBA Championship is more important than money to Chris Webber. If he gets an offer from an upper-tier NBA team, he'll take it over Olympiakoses offer. But if his only offer is from the Atlanta Hawks, then look for him to wigg out to Europe.
This is just another step in the line of steps that Euroleague is taking to become the NBA. 2020, and who knows? First round draft picks may just be opting to play for Olympiakos.
