1986-87 and 1989-90 Salary information

Postby Robert Bradley » Mon Feb 22, 2010 4:06 pm

i have been attempting to find the top 10 player salaries in the league for three seasons since 1984-85 (the three not listed on Patricia Bender's fine site - http://www.eskimo.com/~pbender/), and while I did manage to find 1984-85 on basketball-reference.com, the other two seasons still elude me (BR.com only has estimates).

Anyway, does anyone have the top salaries for 1986-87 and 1989-90?

Here are the ones for 1984-85 that I found -

Magic Johnson, LAL $2,500,000
Moses Malone, PHI $2,125,000
Larry Bird, BOS $1,800,000
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, LAL $1,530,000
Bill Walton, LAC $1,350,000
Ralph Sampson, HOU $1,300,000
Mitch Kupchak, LAL $1,150,000
Jack Sikma, SEA $1,149,000
Otis Birdsong, NJN $1,075,000
Julius Erving, PHI $1,054,000

Hello - Did you ever manage to find salary information for those two seasons? I believe those are the only two missing in the salary cap era, so it would be very valuable information if anybody came across it.
