The passion fans bring to other people's money always amazes me. Nobody's screwing anybody, nobody's getting screwed. Least of all Ben, who RealGM ranks as #69 on the pay scale. Not bad for a guy whose career scoring high is 22 points. And while people argue over what he's "owed," remember that the original Grant Hill sign & trade served to significantly overpay Ben for what he'd accomplished during the early part of his career. You think he felt screwed when he couldn't make a roster three years before? All parties will protect themselves in the clinches, as they should. The rest is mere speculation.
