Find me one negative aspect of having your contract front loaded as a player. I honestly can't think of one.
All things equal, players would be dumb not to want their contract to be front loaded.
Money has a value in time. 7-5-3 is worth more than 5-5-5.
Also, it's protection against buyouts.
Honestly can't think of a single reason why someone would rather have 5-5-5 than say 7-5-3.
Also depending on how insurances work with career ending injuries, it might also be better for the contract to be front loaded because I doubt insurance gives you the full salary. I could be wrong though. Not to mention a player might just want to retire sooner and he can without leaving too much money on the table in certain cases.
