Epic Salary; Jose Calderon Earned $207,500 Per Hour


On Wednesday, Jose Calderon signed with the Golden State Warriors. Warriors star Kevin Durant got injured the day before and Golden State already knew that the injury will force their star to sit out a minimum of four weeks. The Warriors also knew that they wanted to sign Matt Barnes as the player to fill the gap Durant is leaving behind. Instead of just not signing Calderon and saying: “Sorry, that’s some bad luck and timing”, the Warriors signed Calderon nontheless and waived him again two hours later.

Not only is this a nice gesture, it also means that Claderon got paid. You don’t need to feel bad for him, as his two hour stint with the Warriors earned him $415,000 (the amount of money he was set to make for the rest of the season). Not too bad of a salary. That’s $207,500 per hour.



They even had his jersey ready.



The main question is: will Calderon recieve a ring if the Warriors win the Championship?
