The sport of basketball has been growing in popularity around the world for half a century and the NBA, with the best basketball players on the planet, has a lot to do with it. The NBA has all the strongest teams in both old and new worlds. Unsurprisingly, bookmakers and non UK casinos take bets on all NBA regular-season games and the play-offs afterwards.

And since the best players attract the attention of millions of fans, that means they have to provide a “great spectacle”. And get paid accordingly.

Who are the NBA clubs earning the most money this season?

Betting on basketball games is always interesting. Especially at the casino. Slotshine, which also serves as a betting shop.

It is understood, that only the best players have to guarantee not only the results, but also the major trophies for the team. Since the league has a salary cap, only true “stars” with a minimum of 5-7 years playing at the highest level and performing better than other players, scoring the most points, pulling down the most rebounds, and dishing out the most assists are eligible for the maximum income. Let’s list all the “stars” and point out their main achievements, which gave them the right to count on huge salaries.

10. Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors, $40,600,080

Offensive guard for the California club, 4-time NBA champion. Consistently scored around 20 points per game and had an amazing three-point shooting percentage (around 40%). The club re-signed him even though he missed the season before last with a serious injury.

He is back on top form for the fans and team owners alike while still putting up twenty plus points per game.

9. Paul George, Los Angeles Clippers, $42,492,492

Light forward who started his career in Indiana and moved to Los Angeles in 2019. Club owners are seriously expecting the signing of George to lead to a championship win. The fact that Paul is the Association’s truest “star” is evidenced by his high performance and frequent inclusion in the All-Star team (4 times).

8. Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles Clippers, $42,492,492

George’s teammate, destined to win the long-awaited title. Won the championship twice with the San Antonio Spurs (2014) and Toronto Raptors (2019). In the same years he was voted Most Valuable Player of the NBA Finals. Currently one of the league’s best defensive players.

7. Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks, $42,492,492

Heavy forward who led the team to a 2020/21 championship win. Won season MVP award twice. One of the league’s best in scoring and rebounding. Claimed all major titles and prizes also this season.

6. Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers, $43,279,250

Has spent all 11 seasons with the same club and is the leader in points and assists. According to club owners, capable of bringing team the title. Great sharpshooter, one of the candidates for MVP of the season.

5. Bradley Beal, Washington Wizards, $43,279,250

Offensive guard who is the center of the whole team’s play. He is a proven three-point shooter with 40-percent efficiency in every season.

4. Kevin Durant, Phoenix Suns, $44,119,845

The light forward who moved to the Phoenix Suns a fortnight ago in hopes of winning his third league title. He won the first two with the Golden State Warriors. Played for several years for super team Brooklyn Nets before his latest move but failed to win anything.

He’s a classy sharpshooter with an accurate long-range shot. One of the highest-scoring players of recent years.

3. LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers, $44,474,988

The most famous basketball player of the modern era, claiming Michael Jordan’s laurels. Regular season record holder for points scored, breaking Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time record of 38,387. 4-time NBA champion and season MVP. His stats are amazing for anyone with even the slightest interest in basketball.

2. Russell Westbrook, Los Angeles Clippers, $47,063,478

Probably the most overrated player in the rankings, who still has a huge salary no matter what. Despite not winning a league title, still managed to win the MVP of the season in 2017. Acquired over the already playing Leonard and George in the hopes of winning this season’s title. Is an excellent point guard with accurate shooting and a very good passer.

1. Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors, $48,070,014

Super-sniper who managed to win 4 NBA championships. Currently leads the league in three-point shooting all-time. Great point guard with phenomenal accuracy. In one season made 50% from beyond the arc, unmatched by anyone.

The players with the highest salary in the league are listed in this ranking. They are all players of very high quality, who produce results that less talented players can only dream of.
