    For the record, Amir's contract isn't "really good". It's reasonable. He'll be making $7 million a year by the time his contract expires which is honestly a bit on the high side for what he is right now - which is a serviceable big man off the bench who brings a lot of effort and efficiency.

    For a young athletic, hustling, rebounding, defensive and incredibly efficient offensive big man, it is a very good contract. It's not great, but for a guy who helps his team win as much as he does, it's very good.

    I guess it all boils down to what your definition of "very good" is. For me personally, a very good contract is one that actually underpays a player for what they provide. At $5-7 million dollars a season, that's not Amir Johnson.

    I think Amir was underpaid for what he produced this past season. Just looking at PER, he is above average, yet received a below average salary.

    PER can be a bit misleading. Like I said, it all depends on what you consider is a "really good salary". In my opinion, Amir was adequately compensated at $5 million this year but he's not exactly a steal.

    He is not exaclty a steal based on our logical thought of how much an NBA player actually deserves as paycheck...that is different sotry. But compared to many other similar contracts around the league his deal is very good
    GarbageTime like Tim W. you and I can only hope that there won't be odd man out because the world becomes a happy place and Bargnani is not around

    I'm probably just splitting hairs over the wording then. Like I said, my criteria for a very good contract might be different than someone elses.
