This is how they negotiate in Poland. No need for agents, lawyers and managers when you have a tank.
2 days ago, the 30 year old Marcin Gortat aka The Polish Hammer, showed off his military tank as he showed up to his annual basketball camp and yesterday we received news that the Wizards showed him the money – $60 million over 5 years to continue playing in Washington.
I’m proud to say Washington will be my home.

Sweet deal especially considering all ex Wizard Gilbert Arenas got for showing off his (unlicensed) guns was 30 days in a halfway house, 2 years of probation and a suspension for the rest of the season. But don’t feel too bad for Arenas, because the Wizards gave him a 6 year $111 million deal back in 2008 and has made over $60 million since the Magic amnestied him in 2010. Hibachi!
