What was the NBA salary history in the 50s – 80s?
Hello. I don’t know many salaries, but I do know that NBA stars make tens of millions of dollars. Personally I like women’s basketball more and follow their games. Also I make bets on different matches, for example women’s college basketball is very interesting.
IIRC, in 1956 Cousy and Bob Petit was earning top dollar at $25000 year. In 1969, Wilt Chamberlain was earning then an astronomical sum of $250000 a year. If you want something extreme about Wilt Chamberlain’s salary, the guy was earning $80000 a year for the San Francisco Warriors and his salary takes 1/3 of the team’s annual revenue.
