In 1996, Michael Jordan made $30 million from his contract which was more than his whole team combined and more than the next 2 most paid players put together. Only 7 teams had a bigger salary than his by itself. If the nba got rid of the max contract who do you think would be demanding the most money and how much would they be getting? Lebrons obviously the best but do you think he’d take a huge pay cut from what he’s worth and “only” get 30-35 million a year instead of the 50+ he’s worth in order to compete?
KD would break records this offseason.
I feel like Westbrook after KD left would have signed an extension for like 50-60 million, because Paul George wasnâ€™t in sight then and they didnâ€™t look to be contenders anytime soon.
Andrew Wiggins with $50 million a year
Steph KD LeBron all 50+ mill annually
KD would have been getting way less if he was desperate for a ring. I think Harden and Westbrook break the record as both their teams werenâ€™t really contenders when they signed the extension.
Oh yeah Harden too, easily.
Give fox and buddy all the monies
