With All-NBA Omission, Anthony Davis Waves Goodbye to $25 Million

If Pelicans’ star Anthony Davis had received enough votes to make one of the All-NBA teams, he would have been eligible to earn an extra $25 million.

A weird rule the NBA made up in honor of Derrick Rose (called the Derrick Rose rule) is the explanation behind this.

Let’s consult Wikipedia for further explanation:

In a rule named after Derrick Rose, accomplished players coming off their rookie contract could earn more money in the 2011 CBA. A Designated Player may be eligible to earn 30% of the salary cap (rather than the standard 25%) if he passes certain criteria.

That criteria? Starting an All-Star game, winning an MVP, or being named an ALL-NBA player. Now, Anthony Davis’ contract with be worth a maximum of $120 million, not $ 145 million.

Oh well.
