That’s a whole lot of money for Embiid, and it’s just the latest example of the crazy kind of money that’s thrown around in the NBA.

NBA salaries are truly staggering. They blow pretty much every other sport out of the water.

Embiid is one of the best players in the league, and he’s certainly worth a ton of money. It’s still a bit difficult to wrap my head around the fact he’s never won a title and is now earning $196 million.

Something tells me that he’s not going to have to worry about missing any meals at any point in the next four years.

Props to Embiid for getting his cash. Don’t spend it all in one place!
