NBA Salary Report
Every player's salary, for this season and beyond

Want to know the most important statistic in the NBA? It's not points, rebounds or assists, but each player's monetary amount on the league's salary report.

SI.com has obtained a copy of this year's report that was available to league and team officials, players and agents at the start of the season. The report includes salaries for this season through the 2011-12 season. The report also cites the options, if any, that are attached to each player's contract. And it also shows the salaries of players who are no longer with those teams (check out how much the Mavs are paying Michael Finley this season).

You can click here to access each team's salary, or you can click on the specific team name in the chart below. Also, check out our top 50 highest-paid players, as well as our top 10 overpaid and underpaid players. And if you want to let off some steam, you can send us your thoughts on our NBA blog.

Don't particularly like Lebron's inclusion. The guy is on a rookie scale. Yeah he's underpaid, but so are half the top 5's of almost ANY draft.

Agreed. If anything, they should have said "The 2003 draft studs." I mean, LeBron, DWade, Melo, Bosh, etc. are all underpaid when compared to what the Top 50 salaries in the NBA are.

Well they made a stab at it...but yeah any one of those four would arguably go #1 any other year. (Wade and Bosh less so)

Hell, I remember that commercial where 5 of them were waking up to hit the gym as rookies.

College hero back to zero...I believe. I think it was Wade, Bosh, Heinrich, Ford...and someone else.

Either way...that's the 2nd tier (at least at the time)...

I mean we had a once in a decade draft just then and they can only bring LeBron into it?

Whatev.
