The 2016 NBA All-Star Lineup

Kobe Bryant top vote-getter for 18th and final All-Star Game. Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant is an All-Star for the 18th time, and Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green is notably not among the West’s starting five.

Fans overwhelmingly chose Bryant to be an All-Star starter, voting for him almost 1.9 million times, the most among all players. Bryant will start alongside Warriors guard Stephen Curry, Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, Thunder swingman Kevin Durant and San Antonio Spurs wing Kawhi Leonard.

“It’ll be a special All-Star because this is Kobe’s last run,” Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heatsaid.

Durant and Westbrook are All-Stars together for the fifth time, breaking a tie with Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp for most appearances by Thunder/SuperSonics teammates. Durant has scored more than 30 points in four straight All-Star Games, and Westbrook was MVP of the 2015 game.

Curry, the reigning NBA MVP, was second among fans with 1.6 million votes. Curry’s father, Dell, finished his career in Toronto, and the league’s leading scorer will make his third straight All-Star start there.

“It’s going to be a fun experience for both sides of my family,” Curry said in a video posted by the Warriors. “I lived there for three years, my wife is from there, she has a lot of family that still is up there that’s going to be able to celebrate with us. So I’m going to enjoy it and look forward to it.”

The Eastern Conference starters are Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, Indiana Pacers forward Paul George, New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry and Wade. James was the top fan choice for the East team with 1.1 million votes.

Steph Curry Surpasses Reggie Miller

 


Golden State Warriors‘ superstar guard, Steph Curry has once again found himself making NBA history. This time, he surpasses Hall of Famer, Reggie Miller for the second-most career three-pointers ever made.


During his 18 year NBA career, Reggie Miller made 2,560 three-pointers in 1,389 regular season games. Curry passes Miller in the all-time scoring records early on in his 715th game against the Utah Jazz. In just his 12th year in the NBA, Curry now records 2,561 threes and counting. Holding first place is legendary shooter Ray Allen with 2,973 career threes, which is a little over 400 three-pointers more than Curry’s current record. With a cushion of half a thousand beyond the arc shots, Allen’s title as NBA’s all-time three-point shooter should remain safe during the 2021 season. However, at the pace of Curry’s rise to the all-time leaderboard, Curry will likely surpass Allen in the second half of the 2021-2022 season.

The NBA’s Highest-Paid Players 2019-20


At $92 million, including salary and endorsements, James is the NBA’s highest-paid player for the sixth straight year. It is a record haul for an active basketball player. Nike is his biggest backer, and the company is naming a new research lab at its Beaverton, Oregon, corporate campus after James.

The four-time NBA MVP added a pair of endorsement deals in 2019 with Rimowa luggage and Walmart, which joined Coca-Cola, Beats By Dre, Blaze Pizza and NBA 2K in his sponsorship stable. He also has a budding digital media company, Uninterrupted, and a production firm, SpringHill Entertainment, which will release a sequel to the 1996 Michael Jordan vehicle Space Jam in conjunction with Warner Bros. in 2021. All of the off-court work is worth an estimated $55 million for James this season.

Stephen Curry comes in at No. 2 on the earnings list this year and is expected to generate $85 million this season, including $45 million off the court. Under Armour represents nearly half of his off-court income.

Curry’s $40.2 million salary from the Golden State Warriors is the highest in the history of the NBA; he’s in the third season of the five-year, $201 million contract he signed in 2017. Curry’s production company, Unanimous Media, has a development deal with Sony Pictures. Unanimous’ first movie, Breakthrough, was released in April, with Curry playing a role in marketing the Christian-oriented film, which grossed $50 million on a $14 million budget.

Durant has the NBA’s second-biggest annual shoe contract after James’ at an estimated $26 million this season. His total earnings from his playing salary and endorsements is $73 million. Nike sells more KD shoes in China than in North America, according to Durant’s business partner Rich Kleiman.

Like James and Curry, Durant has his own production company, which is co-producing a new basketball-themed drama, Swagger, that is inspired by Durant’s youth basketball experience and will air on the Apple TV+ streaming service.

Lebron James Producing New Show

Through his Uninterrupted media platform, LeBron James has enabled a glimpse into the lives of pro-athletes, as told by the athletes themselves. Now Uninterrupted is linking up with JPMorgan Chase to unleash an online series which will spotlight the topic of money management by profiling sports stars and what their ups and downs have looked like since coming into wealth.

Each 10-minute episode of the series will feature a different sports figure, with the likes of James himself, Serena Williams, and Draymond Green opening up about their expenditures. Green is actually scheduled as the first man up in the series. In episode one, the Golden State Warriors star recalls living off of an $850,000 salary without the help of advisers, in his rookie season. "I said I'm gonna do this on my own. I want to learn how to pay bills. I want to learn how money works," Green says, before sharing a recollection of a night in which he spent more than he had ever imagined he'd allow himself to spend out clubbing. "I had a blast for sure. I could've had a blast for $4,000 though," he said. "I woke up the next day hot like 'What?!' I mean that's $21,000 I can never get back. ... I still remember. I remember that bill."

The series is set to air on the Uninterrupted and Chase websites, and will be hosted by longtime friend and partner of James, Carter, whom also happens to have co-founded Uninterrupted and oversees its operations as CEO. "You never hear the stories behind the decision making," Carter said about the series. "Their lives are literally flipped in that they make the most money they're most likely ever going to make in their lives at a very young age, while they're still learning how to manage everything that comes with a very new lifestyle."

LeBron James Signs New Deal

According to ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst, LeBron James has signed a 3-year, $100,000,000 contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers. After winning a championship for the team, it seems that Cleveland is making it nearly impossible for LeBron to think about leaving the Cavs.

Despite seeing a small dip with his game earlier in the season, LeBron has remained one of the best players in the league. He averaged 29.7 points during the playoffs and helped the team come back from a 3-1 deficit against the Golden State Warriors during the heated games.

Congrads to +LeBron James and the +Cleveland Cavaliers on the new signing.
