Do you know which stars have paid for "arrogance"? Harden counts as one!
Do you know any players who have bet on themselves and ended up losing millions of salaries?
Schroder joined the Raptors for $26 million in 2 years to replace VanVleet's vacancy. However, Schroeder did a "stupid thing" a few years ago, Schroeder in the 20-21 season, played well next to James + Davis, averaging 15.4 points and 5.8 assists per game in 61 games, which was appreciated by Mr. Pei and was willing to send him a four-year, $84 million contract extension, but Schroeder firmly believes that he can become "Mr. Billions".
Who would have thought that when he was most needed, Schroder performed very badly, and in the end, not only did President Pei give up on him, but even the whole league was unwilling to believe him anymore, only Boston, who continued to be a point guard, gave him a contract of $890,000 a year, from $84 million in four years to $890,000 a year, Schroder lost more than 80 million in one thought!
Noel was a very good defensive interior lineman, playing 22 games for the Lone Rangers in the 16-17 season, averaging 8.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game, and the owner of the library was willing to offer him a four-year, $70 million contract extension, who thought, he refused!
Subsequently, Noel barely got a $4 million contract with the Thunder, and after working hard for a season, he only got a 2-year base salary contract. Noel, who did not recognize his role, refused to renew the contract of the library boss in the past few years, and did not get 70 million US dollars!
Harden has been on the cusp of the storm since leaving the Rockets, and as we all know, in the past decade, Harden must be one of the strongest "shooting point guards", but he has never been known as a "superstar" for one reason, playoff crotch.
Harden did not hesitate to take a big salary cut in order to chase the title of "championship", and as we all know, the Rockets in the 19-20 season gave him a two-year $103 million contract extension, which was ruthlessly rejected by Harden and finally chose the Nets. The Nets in the 20-21 season offered him a three-year, $161 million contract extension, which was also decisively rejected by Harden.
Because Harden believes that he can get a four-year $223 million maximum salary extension, it seems that Harden has a salary of $30 million + every year, in fact, Harden has lost more, because the person who can win the season scoring king three times and win the season assist king is definitely worth 30 million + million.
