Adonal Foyle Could\'ve Earned a Couple Commas With a Couple MVP Trophies

Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, Kevin Garnett, Lebron James, Adonal Foyle—wait, who?

Foyle was a journeyman front court player who played in the NBA for 13 seasons between 1997 and 2009. An unremarkable player, he posted career averages of just 4.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. But that didn't stop the Orlando Magic from encouraging Foyle to shoot for the stars when they signed him in 2007. His contract included incentives worth a million dollars if he won NBA MVP and NBA Finals MVP. The incentives didn't seem to motivate Foyle much; he averaged 1.9 points per game during his time in Orlando.
