Kevin Durant is the most exciting new player to come along since MJ. Kobe and Lebron are egomaniacs (and I'm a Laker fan).

Durant is both as good a scorer and rebounder as the other two right now and he's only 21. He's humble, intelligent and a team player.

And he puts people in the seats.

He's worth every dime. And more.

So how much does he end up with after taxes, agent fees, lawyers fees, etc.? 85 million sounds nice but I wonder how much of that the player gets.

Well the Feds will get 32% off the top. Add state taxes in. He has an agent for at least 10% and so on.

I don't disagree that professional athletes are overpaid. But that's the way it is and it is this way because fans are willing to pay the tab. If nobody came then you wouldn't see high ticket prices and such. But they do and since they do, for what Kevin Durant brings to the game in Oklahoma, the people he puts in the seats, in the beer lines, who subscribe to cable and so on to see the exciting OKC Thunder and their Superstar, this is a fair market value contract. And I'm not even a Thunder fan.

Kevin Durant is one of the three best players in the NBA and he may well be the best. He gets 85 million while others get 120 million. He's a bargain at today's prices.

Thanks for the reply. I not really a sports fan, I'm just intrigued by the huge salaries these players get. I know it's because they "put butts in the seats" and the fans are willing to pay whatever it costs to watch a game live.
