As the end of the year holidays approach, COVID-positive players are more and more numerous, which greatly worries fans in view of the Christmas matches … But not everyone is distraught facing the situation. Indeed, the players signed from the G League have the opportunity to to touch a huge jackpot.

In the bubble or last season, the NBA was a model in the management of the health crisis … Adam Silver, for example, made the decision to end the 2019-2020 fiscal year in a bubble isolated from the outside world, and the results have wonderful summer. The players had to mask themselves almost permanently, had to test themselves almost every day, as a result, no one was infected during the playoffs.

Last year also, the protocol to be followed was very strict, with empty rooms, masks very present on the benches, and a distancing always present. The problem is that this season, the pandemic has started again and the positive tests are always more numerous. The stars are not spared with Kevin Durant, James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo or even Luka Doncic all affected at one time or another.

Double salary for players signed for 10 days!

But if these many cases are regrettable for the fans, who are entitled to a necessarily less impressive show on the floor, all players signed from the G League must have a smile. Not only do they get the chance to live a dream, like Isaiah Thomas back with the Lakers, but they also get a big raise. The figures are quite staggering.

According to the Winter Showcase TV crew, the base salary in the G League is $ 37,000 over the season. A 10-day contract in the NBA is worth around $ 60,000 😳

The difference is totally astounding. In just 10 days, players signed to compensate for COVID-related losses will earn almost twice as much as they get in the G League season! $ 37,000 per year would be a nice sum for many people, but for top athletes it is quite ridiculous, especially when you know that the average salary for a rookie is $ 900,000 …

So many of them must be waiting for a phone call right now. Getting a foothold in the NBA is a dream for a lot of players, and it is above all a way for these players to secure themselves a little more financially. And then, while making an impressive passage, why not dream of a real contract and a real salary? The crisis frustrates fans, but delights some.

The misfortune of some makes the happiness of others, here is a good proof of it. If the players affected and the fans are frustrated with the situation, G League players can claim a huge pay raise…
