Nick Young said Kobe Bryant has enough money to fill his whole house with black suits. In reality, the Black Mamba could probably fill a town with designer clothing.
According to Forbes, Bryant was the highest-earning NBA player in 2014 at $64.5 million, with $34 million of those earnings coming from endorsement deals.
LeBron James is hot on Bryant’s heels with $61.1 million in earnings, according to the website, followed by Derrick Rose ($38.6 million), Kevin Durant ($31.8 million) and Dwyane Wade ($30.7 million).
Bryant signed a two-year extension deal worth $48.5 million with the Lakers last year that will ensure he retains the privilege of being the highest-paid player in the NBA salary-wise. His off-the-court endorsement deals with the likes of Nike and Turkish Airlines also help bump up his overall earnings.
