This is the number 1 reason why the NBA > NFL.

LOL. The NBA has never been nor never will be greater than the NFL even wth these rookie contracts.

False

just agree to disagree
A question I had was how Curry's contract compares to Lofa Tatupu's – a player who has never played a down versus a genuine all pro on the same team? Tatupu signed a contract extension on March 21, 2008 (not so long ago) that runs through 2015 (eight season total). The total worth is reported as $42 million with $18 million of it guaranteed. Curry, on the other hand, signed a contract for six years worth $60 million and with $34 million of it guaranteed; he’s roughly getting paid twice as much per season as Tatupu with almost twice as much guaranteed. Does anyone else here see something wrong with this when a proven star’s contract is much less than a really good prospect’s contract? Yes, a rookie salary cap is desperately needed.

2. Rams, OT Jason Smith, Signed July 30 (camp opened July 29) 5 yrs, $62 million, $33M guaranteed

Overall, yes. Per year, no.

I believe he was referring to the salary system used. Which if true, he's right. They took care of this problem years ago.



And as much as I love the NBA, and my beloved Lakers, as a whole: NFL>NBA.
