5 years and $129 million compared to 4 years and $96 million.  Not sure about a "close second".  It's odd, when Anthony wanted to come to the Knicks, it was "he's greedy and just about the money".  But now that folks want him come to the Bulls all that greed suddenly disappears?  People forget that Anthony essentially forced him way to NY via a trade just half a season early because he was concerned about the new CBA potentially costing him (ironically enough) something in the $25-30 million range (or roughly the difference between what the Knicks and Bulls can offer him).  And in the process of forcing a trade (instead of just waiting half a year to sign outright) cost the Knicks most of their assets that could have potentially been used to get him a real 2nd star.  Very convenient, memory...you can forget it when it's convenient.
