NBA players to miss today's paychecks
That’s because on the first day when NBA players were supposed to be paid for the 2011-12 season (Nov. 15), they didn’t get any money because they have been locked out for 139 days.
The average NBA player will lose $220,000 today.
Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, due to earn $25,244,493 this season, will lose $1,051,832 today.
Miami Heat forward LeBron James, due to earn $16,022,500 this season, will lose $667,603 today.
Not that any fans feel sorry for these guys.
