Do you REALLY think any contract in sports is based on what players have proven? Get real man?

There are TONS of examples of contracts based on potential...hell, part of the CBA negotiation sticking point was about this
Sports contracts have always been based on two things.

1) Past performances

2) Future potential.

At least that's how I see it. It's an equal part of both.

Obviously veterans lean harder on past performances than future potential, but as a generality I would say most GM's assess both aspects when offering contracts.
