NBA, richest contracts in league history

After Jaylen Brown's contract renewal with the Boston Celtics, what is in fact the richest deal in the history of the American professional basketball league, 'Sky Sports' went looking for the other pharaonic contracts in the NBA.

The list of the five biggest contracts ever signed obviously only includes contemporary players, and in fact there is no mention of the technical value of the player but only of his 'salary'.

Incredibly, neither LeBron James nor Steph Curry are on this list.

An initial premise
Speaking of the biggest contracts ever signed in the history of the league, it is incredible to note the absence of two superstars from the last 15 years of the NBA, namely LeBron James and Steph Curry. The contracts signed by these two phenomena, hands down the biggest dominators of this period, have all been less than the following ones.
