LeBron, Steph, KD…the list goes on. Here are the top NBA endorsement earners for 2023-24, filled with familiar names.
If you’re good enough on the court, being a professional athlete can yield you millions. And if you’re savvy enough off the court, you can significantly increase your earnings via other avenues. Endorsements are one of those ways, and Sportico has released the list of the 15 highest-paid NBA players entering the 2023-24 season, accounting for exactly that.
The list of names has graced our screens for years, been the faces of the biggest brands on Earth, and some have even earned that coveted signature sneaker. Not surprisingly, they are also among the absolute best at their craft.
