Default New contract...do you go for the most money/big city/best chance to win a ring??

Which one of the 3 would you choose? Why?

Edit: You're a top 20 player and 22 years old

I'm not the biggest fan of being the center of attention in a big market like New York, so I wouldn't to LA or New York. It's cool and all when you are winning and playing well, but when you aren't doing that, yikes....

I'd go with a chance to win a ring, so really, a team like the Spurs (always under the radar it seems) would be a logical choice for me. I'd be more of a team player.

Money, of course. Everyone should.

There are no guarantees when it comes to sports. You try and make as much money as you can as quickly as possible. Take care of yourself and your family and friends first. Worry about titles and your legacy later.

I go with money or chance for a ring. It comes down to how much money would I sacrifice for a chance at a championship. Investing in assets is your friend for more money.

Depends. If I already have like $100M in the bank, I want that ring. If I'm young and not financially secure for the rest of my life, I gotta get da $

I don't expect instant success or anything, but I would like to go to a franchise with consistency and has a good reputation of being family like.

The money would have to be reasonable, but let's not act like you have to make the most money in the world to support your family. I don't need to make Kobe money to do so.

Chance to win rings. As a Top 20 player, I have prob have a handful of endorsement deals already that I can live off of.

You gotta be more specific with top 20 player.

Am I Paul George or Carmelo Anthony? George isn't gettin any where near the endorsements of Carmelo. Hell, he's not gettin the endorsements of Joe Johnson.

It's tough to say, but I like to think I'd choose a combination of the two....

80% most money / 20% direction of the franchise.

I'd want to go somewhere not used to success and turn their culture into a winning one. That is a true legacy to me, not going wherever it's easiest to win
