It’s a signature shoe world, isn’t it? It’s become almost necessary for a brand to have that headlining athlete in order to establish a category, and in this era when LeBrons, KDs, and Kobes dominate the wish-lists, brands have had to up the ante in order to keep these guys around. What makes the case further is that brands are relying on bringing back older models to boost sales (Kobe Prelude Pack, Jordan Melo 1.5, and it’s definitely not stopping there). We already know of the long-term contracts signed by these guys, but did you ever wonder about the actual numbers behind these deals?

Here we have a collection of some of the highest paid signature athletes in the NBA based on this Forbes article. There are the obvious names in here, considering there aren’t much more than ten signature athletes actively balling the league, but there are some surprises in here for sure. Most importantly, this order is bound to change, with guys like KD pulling in massive numbers and other fellows struggling in that aspect. Check out this list below, and let us know which name and figure surprises you the most.
