Of the major sports in America, NBA basketball is among those I follow the least. (WNBA that's a completely differnt story.) And so I'm sure others here got better understanding. But at free agent time I always see these stories breathlessly reported like "Whoa Nelly!!! Andrew Doobadadoodaw han signed with the Buck for $23 M over three years this changes everything what a cudata they han engineered in Cream City!!!" A lot of times these players aren't stars hell they aren't even starters I don't get it.
