Rich teams doing what they can easily do, a CBA that allowed it, player agents that push it, the competition factor that pushes it, and colusion laws which make it hard to justify not doing it.

Those are the factors that explain it.
I couldn't agree more with this. Been saying it forever; "it takes 2 to tango". Owners/GM's do not simply offer these deals on their own, without the player/agent pushing for it. Both sides are to blame for these long-term/back-diving deals.
