Damian Lillard has already etched his name in the history books of Portland. Ever since LaMarcus Aldridge left Portland for the Spurs, Lillard has arguably carried their offense. He has not averaged below 25 points per game until so far this season. Even though he has begun this season with a slump, every NBA fan knows he will find his mojo soon. Despite all the experts suggesting that Damian needs to leave Portland to win a championship, Lillard has shown his unhinged loyalty to the franchise. And it has clearly, not just been about the money.

Of course, in return, the franchise also showed him the appreciation he deserves. They offered him a Supermax contract which keeps him in Portland till the 2024-25 season. However, considering he was already on contract from 2016 to 2021, this Supermax only kicked in this year. Therefore, let’s look at this impressive contract that offers him a whopping 54.3 million in the final year as a player option.

In the 2017-18 season, Damian Lillard earned $40 million combined from his endorsements, sponsorships, and player salary.  His total earnings from 2012 to 2018 combine to $65.3 million. However, now that his Supermax contract kicks in from this season, his earning from player salary itself amounts to around $40 million. Combined with endorsements and sponsorships, we expect this amount to shoot up.
