The 20 Richest NBA Players of All Time

There are two things everyone in the world knows about NBA players. The first, is that they are good at basketball, and the second, is that they make boatloads of cash for their talents. Here at Playmaker HQ, we wanted to take a look at just how much some of these players have brought in over the years. I think you will be somewhat surprised at the amount of wealth some of these players have amassed, both while playing, and after their time in the league has passed.

We have used information from Celebrity Net Worth, The Richest and Forbes to create this list with up to date figures as of 2018.

Yao Ming is a retired Chinese Professional NBA Player. He played for the Houston Rockets, and at 7’5″ he was one of the most famous players to ever come out of China, and his huge endorsements from back home have let him amass a Net Worth of $120 Million.
