Despite some speculation that he would be leaving the team this offseason, Zach LaVine is ready to commit to Chicago for the long term.

The Bulls and LaVine agreed to a five-year, $215 million max contract Friday, the max amount of money and years he could be offered according to NBC Chicago.

LaVine announced his return to the Windy City via his Instagram by using a famous scene from The Wolf of Wall Street.

While Bulls fans are excited about LaVine staying in town, a vast majority of Twitter thinks the price may be too high for someone who’s made only two All-Star games and never been named to an All-NBA team.

Whatever you think about LaVine, the 27-year-old guard is coming of the two best seasons of his career, helping the Bulls make the playoffs for the first time since 2016-17. The two-time Slam Dunk Contest champion was also named an All-Star in both 2021 and 2022.
