Default Players Making $$$ Hand Over Fist

Just an interesting little factoid.

In 2010-11, Miami paid Lebron, Bosh & Wade $14.5 million apiece.

Next season they'll pay Dion Waiters & Kelly Olynyk approx $13 million each.


What a time...

Bro lololol

Grab a pair of pliers and yank out the tampax dart that's tightly fastened in your v@gina. I'm well aware of the current financial climate that the NBA lives in but was simply drawing comparisons to how quickly things have progressed.

You alright lol? You're more snappy than a nun from the 60's.

Again, i'm completely aware of the financial climate of the current day. What I posted was a tweet that I had read which I found compelling given that the former signings were consummated in 2010 (which isn't exactly that long ago)

In the span of 7 years, your typical average player is now making the same money that the leagues best were.

It was just a fact that caught my eye guys.

These contracts are ridiculous.

Still laughing at Chandler Parson's 94 million dollar contract

Clyde Drexler over a 13-season career made $31 million dollars... With inflation adjustment, that's like ~80 million dollars now. Nowadays some role players are making that much in 4-5 seasons.

Shits crazy
