Third-Team All-NBA

F- Blake Griffin

F- LeBron James

G- Russell Westbrook

G- Kemba Walker

So, why exactly do these teams have a such an impact on certain players’ earning power?

Well, teams can only offer players a ‘super max’ contract if they are:

  • Named DPOY in the most recent season, or both of the two seasons that preceded it
  • Named MVP in any of the three most recent seasons
  • Named to one of the All-NBA teams in the most recent season, or both of the two seasons that preceded it

The super max is such a big deal because it allows a team to offer a player who’s been with the team for seven to nine years a contract worth 35 percent of the cap.

And this year, that equals $221.2 million.

This is why the All-NBA teams have such monumental implications for both players and teams.

So when you consider all this, it makes sense that Klay Thompson was so pissed off about missing out.

Much like Karl-Anthony Towns, Klay will miss out on about $30 million dollars thanks to being snubbed.

Talk about high stakes.
