Maybe Brandon Marshall ought to have taken his personal recommendation and accomplished a bit extra analysis earlier than launching into this rant.
On the latest “I Am Athlete” show, the six-time Professional Bowl broad receiver mentioned the variations in contract constructions for NBA and NFL gamers with Channing Crowder, Chad Johnson and Fred Taylor. The dialog heated up when Marshall declared that the majority NBA gamers do not have absolutely assured contracts. Marshall’s co-hosts tried to chop him off, however he was already in too deep.

“Not all people that is on an NBA roster has a assured contract,” Marshall stated. “There’s 4 guys on an NBA crew that obtained assured contracts, and all people else will be reduce at this time and do not obtained nothing. Look it up!”
Only a small downside right here. Uh, Marshall is fallacious.
As Bleacher Report’s Eric Pincus famous, the overwhelming majority of NBA contracts are assured. Sure, sure contracts will be non-guaranteed relying on how a participant and crew negotiate the deal, however these should not widespread instances.
I imply, I believe most individuals know that NBA contracts are assured. Some (possibly 5-8% sometimes, have not counted) can begin the season non-guaranteed by by Jan 10 annually (non-pandemic) – all of them are after that time

And if that is not sufficient for Marshall, he can merely ask Hawks guard Lou Williams or Lakers ahead Jared Dudley about how NBA contracts work. The 2 veterans have signed a couple of of them.
🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️ This man can’t be severe??? 95% of gamers have guaraenteed contracts… Typically 1 particular person per roster will signal a partial with a later date to both being reduce or signed for the rest of the season.. Solely high Elite QBs have comparable NBA offers https://t.co/9K9j1Mwlzg
