The Very Well Compensated Mike Conley Signing Autographs (Photo)
Here is an original photo of Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley signing autographs prior to a recent game at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The shot was gathered by Lance Martinez from My Detroit Sports.
At the moment, Mr. Conley is a very popular figure at his financial institution of choice. Over the summer, in conjunction with the big jump in NBA salary cap space, Conley re-signed with Memphis for $153 million, over five years. The Ohio State alum now holds the distinction of inking the largest total dollar deal in NBA history. Not bad for a guy that has never even made an All-Star team.
Sometimes life is all about being in the right place at the right time.
This season, Conley is averaging 18.9 points, 6.2 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game for the 26-20 Grizzlies. Conley’s points average is up nearly four from last season.
For his 10-year career, the fourth pick in the 2007 draft has averaged 13.8 points, 5.6 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.5 steals per contest.
The 29-year-old Conley is known league-wide for being one of the nicest guys in the sport. iFolloSports.com has been witness to the classiness he continues to provide fans. Here is a look at some of those interactions.
