Think you had a good post-Halloween? Then, you probably got nothing on Los Angeles Laker star Kobe Bryant who is going to score a 24 million dollar check today.
Why you may ask? Well, Kobe’s new contract was backloaded and we learn more about that from the Los Angeles Times:
Negotiated as part of his contract, Bryant receives a balloon payment Nov. 1. On Friday, the All-Star guard will receive $24,363,044 from the Lakers.
Bryant’s salary for the entire season is $30,453,805 — the remaining $6.1 million will be paid out over the course of the season.
While there’s a limit to how much a player can receive in advance, Bryant is right at that 80% maximum.
Make it rain, Kobe!
