Top 10 Highest paid NBA players for 2012-2013
I just thought it would be interesting to put this out. Can't believe Durant and LeBron and Durant aren't even in the top 10 even though they're top 2 guys in the league (They do make a ton out of endorsements though so it equals out lol). Lakers have 3 of the most paid players in the league and yet teams like Grizzlies have to trade their players in fear of going over the luxury tax (seems to me there's still something wrong with it then). Arenas still in the top 5 being paid and not too long ago he was one of my favorite players and one of the best players in the league and now no team will take him. Roy is just a tragic story, he's supposed to be leading the Blazers along with Aldridge and Oden to a championship contention and yet he's fighting to get back playing again from a degenerative disease.
K.Bryant - $27,849,000
B. Roy - $21,459,805
D. Nowitzki - $20,907,128
G. Arenas - $20,807,922
A. Stoudemire - $19,948,799
J. Johnson - $19,752,645
C. Anthony - $19,450,000
D. Howard - $19,261,200
P. Gasol - $19,000,000
E. Brand - $18,160,354

Yeah, poor guy..lol He's SUCH a humanitarian by ONLY taking $17,545,000 this year for playing basketball games...
"I work for Nike"
and wait.. did you just say "Can't believe Durant and LeBron and Durant" lol
Didn't even notice it, guess what happens if I don't proof read which I never do lol.
Wow! This is a crazy list...can't even really remember Roy and Arenas playing, it feels like its been 5 years. And Elton Brand??? lol
The beauty of having a guaranteed contract. You play may deteriorate but you pay won't
This is exactly why I'm not going to sit in a dark corner and cry for Brandon Roy like some do.
