The famous NBA erupts Tuesday night from Wednesday. The best basketball league in the world offers big and emotional events. Abroad, it is very popular, which is reflected in the salaries of individual players. Come see the ten highest paid basketball players.
There is a lot of money in NBA basketball. After all, a comparison to the NHL serves as an example, where highest-paying hockey player Erik Karlsson comes in at CKr 318 million. However, compared to the NBA, the San Jose Sharks defenseman only takes about a third of the highest paid basketball player.
For example, Tomáš Satoranský will reach 219 million crowns in the New Orleans Pelicans this year, while highest-paid Czech hockey player Jakub Voráček (Columbus Blue Jackets) will reach 165 million crowns in the NHL.
We must not forget the young Vít Krejčí, who risks facing a first in the NBA. The 21-year-old Czech basketball player has signed a four-year contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder, which will earn him $ 925,000 (around 20 million crowns) this year, for a total of 138 million crowns.
10. Klay Thompson (Golden State Warriors) – 833 million crowns
Tenth place belongs to star partner Stephen Curry. Klay Thompson currently receives $ 38 million (833 million crowns) from the Golden State team. However, he didn’t do much with the contract he signed in 2019. On September 30 of the previous year, he severely severed his anterior cruciate ligament and hasn’t played since. He’s now recovering from an Achilles tendon injury, but he could resume full training as early as November. And then maybe the Golden State Warriors could help return to center stage and win the NBA in 2015, 2017, and 2018. According to Forbes magazine, Thompson is the eighth richest NBA player, winner. $ 16 million per year from lucrative advertising contracts. One of them is a contract with the Chinese shoe brand Anta.
