【Guide】News on February 28, The NBA is known as the millionaire club. Many players live a luxurious life. How luxurious is it?
Shaq O’Neal said in an interview that he owned 60 luxury cars at most and spent more than $9 million a day at most.
He also talked about the championship pressure during the Lakers’ three consecutive championships, saying that his father helped him complete the decompression.
O’Neal is one of the players with the highest total salary in NBA history, earning a total of about 292 million US dollars in his career.
During his eight years with the Lakers, O’Neal earned a total of $142 million.
After joining the Heat, his salary in the 2004-05 season was about 27.7 million US dollars, and then he renewed a contract of 100 million yuan.
O’Neill’s income is only salary, excluding his various advertising endorsement income and investment income.
Having earned so much money, O’Neill is willing to spend it. He has collected many world famous cars.
From the latest Hummer off-road vehicle at that time, Ford Crown to super Ferrari sports car, as long as he took a fancy to it, it was the three words “buy, buy, buy”.
O’Neill himself recalled that at his peak, he owned 60 luxury cars.
Because there are too many luxury cars, I often worry about which car to drive, which is the trouble of happiness.
In addition to being willing to spend money on buying a car, O’Neill is also willing to spend money on other aspects.
He himself recalled that at the most, he spent more than 9 million dollars a day, mainly for buying houses and cars.
The level of O’Neal’s spending is horrific. Not to mention that ordinary people can’t earn so much money in a lifetime, it means that many NBA players’ entire career salary has not reached 9 million.
However, O’Neill’s expenses are not completely random, there are elements of investment in them.
The house he bought around 2000 must have increased in value now, and it is considered a fixed asset investment.
Compared with O’Neal, some NBA players are also very luxurious, such as Gilbert Arenas, this guy has earned a lot of money in his life, but he likes to use the money to raise sharks and the like, which smells like waste.
The other two highest-earning players in the NBA are Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett.
As of the 2013-14 season, Bryant earned about $280 million, not including his two-year, $48.5 million extension.
As of the 2013-14 season, Garnett has earned a total of $315 million. He has the last year of his contract with the Timberwolves, worth $12 million.
According to the latest news, Garnett will also renew his contract with the Timberwolves for two years. If Kobe retires in 2016, Garnett will overwhelm Kobe and become the working emperor in NBA history.
