Grotesque holiday clause
The highest paid NBA show of all time?
Arguably one of the shortest and most profitable days in NBA history, defending champion Milwaukee’s Jrue Holiday is just eight seconds on the field in the final game of the regular season. The reason for this is enshrined in the shipowner’s contract.
Work and earn like Jrue Holiday: The Milwaukee Bucks point guard star creates a particularly absurd moment in his club’s final game of the NBA regular season. The 31-year-old is just eight seconds on the ground before his turn ends. After the kickoff, he waited at the midfield line for his Cleveland Cavaliers opponent and took down Darius Garland. Very clunky and completely unnecessary. Holiday shuffles over to the bench, sits down with a smile, and becomes $306,000 richer. By the way, extrapolated that would correspond to an hourly wage of $137.7 million rather staggering.
According to ESPN, there is a bonus clause in his contract. The ace has to make 67 regular season games and average a measly 3.15 rebounds per game. He reached the value without difficulty (4.5), however he had to tie his shoes again for the number of bets and not take ten steps before losing 115:133 to the Cavs as the other two main stars Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo could be. rested.
Holiday has played for the Bucks since late November 2020, won the championship last season and has played a key role in the team. This year he is the third best pitcher on his team with 18.3 points and the best assist provider with 6.8 assists. Exactly one year ago, he renewed his contract in Milwaukee and is expected to make up to $160 million in four years. In view of this, the bonus seems insignificant. But what you have, you have. By the way, the defending champion is now playing the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs.
Theis threatens a first-round duel
The highly traded Boston Celtics around Daniel Theis finished the main round in second place in the east. In the playoffs, the team is threatened with a tough first-round duel with the Brooklyn Nets by the two superstars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, who missed most of the season due to his refusal to get vaccinated against the corona virus. Against the Memphis Grizzlies, Celtcis went 139-110, overtaking the Bucks. Possibly a planned move by the defending champion, who has now apparently taken the easy lot.
Despite a loss, the Miami Heat failed to be relegated from first place and lost 111:125 without their top players at the Orlando Magic. Fourth place in the Eastern Conference went to the Philadelphia 76ers, fifth place is the Toronto Raptors, sixth place is the Bulls. The Nets secured seventh place with 134:126 against the Indiana Pacers. The Cavaliers are eighth, the Atlanta Hawks are ninth and the Charlotte Hornets are tenth. The top six have their playoff ticket guaranteed. Teams in positions seven through ten play two more tickets in a play-in. The Nets meet the Cavaliers, the Hawks the Pacers.
