The NBA Salary Cap Set At $94.1 Million This Season Is The Start Of Money Madness For Many Years
The NBA salary for the 2016-2017 season set at $94.1 million meaning the end of cheap deals are over, and the beginning of overpaying players has begun, equaling the start of money madness.
Money, money, money, money continues to fall everywhere an NBA player goes. It’s like living in a fictional world which everyone gets what they want because their self-worth is much higher than most would think. That world is officially existing right before our eyes.
Players like Timothy Mozgov getting a four-year, $65 million deal or Mike Conley becoming the richest man in NBA history with a five-year, $153 million deal, it’s safe to say the cusp of high money spending is happening. The madness most saw with the NFL or MLB getting ridiculous contracts is not even close to what the NBA will be in a few years.
Due to massive TV deals expanding for many years, the cap space will continue to go up. Next year will be at least $110 million and possibly $120 million the following year. What’s stopping a multi-billion dollar industry like the NBA from becoming the number one sport in the United States? Well deals like this and must-watch players playing at the highest level helps.
The old expression “Money Talks” applies in this situation. LeBron James might be the first player to get a five-year, $200 million deal. Stephen Curry most likely joining as well as these two players are faces of the NBA. Still there is much work to do for this growth of money to continue trending upward. Only NBA commissioner Adam Silver and the rest of the employees can discuss what’s next moving forward.
Just hope that players don’t be become lazy or else they will be hearing it from their fans on playing 110 percent on the court every night.
