I've turned down offers to make maybe 10-20% more salary at other companies because I like where I am but I'm certainly not going to stay for less than 1/3 of what I should be making which is the case here. It will be interesting to revisit this discussion next year for sure.

Maybe there's something in the water in San Jose as well. Of all the markets (players go to NY for the experience but many move on) I don't think there's one that once players play there they never want to leave like that market.
Punctuated by the fact he has an extremely short earning period as a pro athlete.
