Contemplating the Los Angeles Lakers’ standing as a high contender with two of the Prime 7 gamers within the league on their roster, their wage cap state of affairs really isn’t too surprising.

LeBron James, making $39.2 million this season, is someway simply the sixth-highest paid participant this season, one spot behind John Wall.

Anthony Davis, in the meantime, at $32.7 million in 2020-21, is merely the 18th highest-paid participant within the league.
