Face it, we're all Moe Harkless.
The Portland Trail Blazers forward was in an interesting spot Wednesday night in the team's final regular-season game. All he had to do to make a sweet US$500,000 (NZ$714,000) bonus was finish the season making 35 percent of his three-point attempts, a delicious prospect complicated by the face that he went into the game at 35.1 percent.
What to do, what to do?
Even though he's in the first year of a four-year, US$42-million contract, Harkless did the only sensible thing, really. He didn't take a three-point shot in the 103-100 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.
Who among us would not take the money and run?
SB Nation figured the possibilities, in case you need to consider this further:
Number of threes attempted:
It wasn't like he cost his team-mates anything - the Blazers are in the playoffs as the Western Conference's eighth seed and, besides, who can't use an extra US$500,000?
Harkless played 22 minutes and was 5-of-6, finishing with a three-point percentage of 35.1 and letting his team-mates throw up 30 three-point attempts.
