The list of the top NBA salaries for next season is out, and it really shows you why the top teams are the top teams. They pay the most money to the best players. Well, there is one exception.
The 11, 10, and 9 spots are occupied by the Miami Heat's big three of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh. There are three Lakers on the list, thanks to Dwight Howard heading to Los Angeles. The exception I mentioned is the New York Knicks. They have two of the top four with Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire and they're still pretty bad. Maybe because those two guys are overpaid.
Click through the gallery to see the full list and exactly how much each guy is raking in for the upcoming year. Remember, these are just their salaries. Endorsements and other money like appearance fees aren't included in the totals.
