I don't believe NBA players do. I think NFL players do though.

Gilbert Arenas better get paid. He throws out a jersey every game.

Yeah they get a certain % of their sales. Nothing compared to their contracts though.

it's a little murky but that's a yes and no answer for this... the sales of players jerseys goes to the nba and is counted as basketball related income of which a certain percentage of this goes to the players association and each player gets paid by the nbapa after expenses and such.. so yes they get paid but from what i can sort out they all get the same amount at the end of the year and it all depends on the profit seen by the league that given season...
