When you look up highway robbery a photo of Rashard smiling ear to ear is directly underneath it. By no means are we blaming him, though—he even said so himself. The blame goes to Orlando's front office for that horrible contract. You know? The same folks that bumbled the handling of Dwight Howard this season and put themselves in a position to go through another media circus next year. Orlando signed Lewis based on his years in Seattle where he played Robin to Ray Allen's Batman. They then traded him for another bad contract in the form of Gilbert Arenas in 2010. Since signing that 6-year/$118 million monster deal, Rashard's production has gone down every season.
