The NBA’s top 12 endorsers will make $233 million off the court this year by Forbes’ count led by a pair of Nike guys in LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Under Amour’s Stephen Curry is closing fast though.(Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)
Every year I wonder the same thing, “How much does (insert name) make in endorsement money?” Why do I do this? I think everyone wants to be rich. We want to earn enough to make our families comfortable so we look to the people that we know are doing well. We admire them and hope that all of the things we are doing will amount to even a part of what these supermen earn on and off the court.
For some there is jealousy, for others their is motivation, for me it’s the idea that on a small scale if I can build this website to the point where people visit it often I can garner a small part of this for my family. So, I look at Forbes and when I see this article I always read it. This year I get to actually share it since I’ve turned the site into an information site instead of just a sneaker site.
Who is the top earner in the NBA? I’m sure you can guess that. However, 2 names on the top earners list… well one name is surprising. Use the source link to see who the big money endorsers are; oh, the money on the list includes off the court income so when you read the list and see the shoe sponsor that is not the amount that the shoe sponsor is paying the athlete. The amount includes other brands as well.
