NBA Team And Player Salaries: 2014-15

0 comments
There’s a saying in sports journalism: numbers never tell the whole story. Well, to that we say: they don’t lie, either. Taking a look at this year’s salaries, you can find that Kobe Bryant, the league’s highest-paid baller, earns a whopping 31.5 per cent of the Los Angeles Lakers’ total player payroll. The Dallas Mavericks’ new acquisition, Chandler Parsons, now makes $6,094 more than his former Houston Rockets running mate, James Harden—that has to sting. And this year’s playoffs hopefuls, the Toronto Raptors, are paying their roster more than 25 other teams across North America. If you’d prefer to draw your own conclusions, here’s a handy reference for basketball fans who want to stay on top of who gets paid what during the 2014-15 NBA season.
