The current off-season has seen some of the league’s biggest superstars get paid a fortune. Though, the world is still recovering from the recession due to the pandemic COVID19. It seems like a regular year for some NBA superstars who are making big bucks.
The NBA is a player-dominant league, where power solely rests within their hands, especially if you’re a superstar. In the past, we’ve seen players push their way out of a particular organization if they feel they have a better opportunity to win somewhere else.
In the current off-season players, like Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and Joel Embiid have signed major contracts that keep them secured for almost half a decade.
The 3x NBA champion Steph Curry recently signed a 4 year $215M extension with the Warriors, becoming the first player in NBA history to sign two $200M contracts. In the upcoming 2021-22 season, the 2x MVP will earn a base salary of $45M.
