Najera & Carter NOT About the $$$ & Booze

(Boulder-CO) The Nuggets are currently the third highest team payroll in the NBA with three of their four highest individual salaries all running through the 2010-11 season. Eduardo Najera is in a contract year. He is set to make $4.9 million this season and then he will be a free-agent, but instead of thinking about the free-agent market and how much his basketball services are worth. He is more concerned about staying a Nugget for years to come; even if that means becoming the ultimate “Team“ guy. That’s right, Eddie is willing to take less money to stay loyal to the Nuggets!

But, what the article linked above doesn’t tell you (and what nobody else but yours truly will tell you) is that Eduardo Najera is by no means hurting for cash. In fact, he makes some of the biggest bread on the team by way of endorsements. So, don’t worry about Eddie this Christmas. Eduardo has his money game in check.
Also included in the same article is a segment about Anthony Carter and his career-high stats. When presumably asked about what he attributes the improved play to he says some cliche things like, "Taking care of my body", and, "Eliminating fast-food", but what I didn't expect to read was, "I'm not drinking the whole season."
Go Nuggets!
