Depends on the difference...

Depends on the difference... if its only 3 million more then stay but for more than 3 million more I'd leave and be a beast for some euro squad.

I would say NBA Growing up,

I would say NBA

Growing up, you hear about guys building legacies in the NBA, and every ballers dream is to play in the NBA, going overseas just wouldnt feel right..

Maybe i'd pull a Jannero Pargo and go for 1 season, then come back to the NBA

someplayers

need it though to rebuild their career and work on their game.
personally. i think Childress would have been overpaid and made big bucks if he stayd in the NBA two seasons ago instead of leaving for europe.
pargo had to because as good as he is he will never get recogniztion.
he is a stellar backup pg!

I think the biggest part

I think the biggest part that would affect my decision is how much value i have in the US. If im not worth a lot in the NBA and only making 2-3 million and Europe offers me a lot more money i would leave. However if i have a decent salary in the NBA of at least 5-6 mill i would probably stay in the US regardless of what europe was offering me.

Hard Question

If i am an NBA Star then i would definitely stay here this is where the real comp is and you will probably make up for the extra cash with endorsements. If i am just some 2nd tier player like josh childress for example and i get offered more money to play overseas then i would probably have to look at that oppurtunity to make that extra money.
