Aalthough The series between the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors still has a long way to go on its way to the NBA titletheir owners are already counting on the profits they will make after the end of the season.
The coin is in the air
Right now, Boston is in the lead in its quest for its 17th title, having won two of the three finals played so far.
As for Golden State, while it doesn’t have half its rival’s championships in return, the fact that it won the last of the six in its showcases in 2018 gives some support that it may just be able to rise and reverse the panorama .
Now, as far as the financial aspect is concerned, it is estimated that the new NBA champion would receive an income of more than 5 million dollars as an indirect prize that will be distributed among the players playing playoffs according to the criteria of the Players’ Union (NBPA ).
Notably, the Celtics were below the luxury tax limit on the day the contract expired.
Between incentives and taxes
However, if they become champions, due to the fact that Jaylen Brown’s contract is packed with incentives and a special bonus if she becomes champion. that increases his salary and also the tax money the club has to pay, which would be about $11 million.
In that sense, the other teams that don’t pay the so-called luxury tax would get several hundred thousand dollars extra if the league paid out a percentage of profits made during the season.
