Ahead of this weekend’s highly anticipated 2018 NBA All-Star game, Forbes has compiled a list of the players involved ordered in the amount of money each one earns annually in endorsements.
While some of the highest ranked players’ earnings come as no surprise—after all, LeBron James did sign a seven-year, $90 million contract with Nike while he was still in high school —others further down the pecking order are still staggeringly high.
