Who are the Top 10 earners in the NBA in 2013?

This summer we had one of the most interesting and hilarious NBA off seasons that we have seen in a long time with some pretty big names moving around the league. And with the 2012-13 NBA season now underway, this is the perfect time to take a look on who are the top players in the league would earn this year.

The NBA playoffs are in full swing so we thought it would be appropriate to post the latest list of the highest paid players in basketball for 2013. In terms of making money playing a sport, it doesn't get much better than the NBA. The top NBA players are some of the highest paid athletes in any sport in the world. And the best part about basketball contracts is that they are all completely 100% guaranteed. That means if you sign a $100 million contract then suffer a career ending injury the very next day, you still get paid all of your money. That is not the case in the NFL. If an NFL player gets injured on his first day, he gets nothing. But on to the highest paid NBA players of 2013
