CHICAGO – Unlike most players, who receive their salaries in bi-monthly increments throughout the course of the NBA calendar year, Los Angeles Lakers megastar Kobe Bryant has a special clause in his contract that pays him 70 percent of his annual salary on the first day of the regular season.

Since he is owed $27,849,149 for the upcoming season, Kobe will get roughly $19.4 million up front this October 30, when the 67th NBA season officially opens for business in 28 cities across the United States and Canada.

And when the life of his existing contract ends next year, Kobe will pocket a balloon payment that is sure to make his accountant happy and dizzy all at once – $32 million.

How much Kobe makes is neither your business nor mine, but I’m discussing it here in hopes of quenching the thirst of those who yearn to know whether the future Hall-of Famer deserves to be the highest-paid player over Miami Heat juggernaut LeBron James, who will earn a relative bargain of $17.5 million for the 2012-13 NBA wars.
