At the beginning of each season, when the salaries of pro athletes are publicized, we're always left wondering: How much do they actually get hold of?

This NBA season, we combined with sports tax expert Robert Raiola, director of the sports and entertainment group for PKF O'Connor Davies, to evaluate the salaries of the league's highest stephen curry jersey paid players. We crunched their dollars to create our best camouflage jersey estimates of what they walk away with after discount, as outlined to us by representatives of the players union.

You'll notice that discount from gross salary include federal, state and city taxes (and in Kyle Lowry's case, Canadian taxes), agent fees (assumed at 3 percent) and a maximum 401K contribution of $18, 000. In the case of players who live in a no-income-tax state, you'll see that they are paying taxes -- so-called "Jock Taxes" from playing in other states.

Then of course you'll see that players get back the ten percent of their salary that was held in escrow from last season, after it is taxed. And they lose ten percent to escrow for this year, which will be given back as long as the owners pay the players the arranged 51 kids stephen curry jersey percent of Basketball Related Income (BRI). Then of course you'll notice a surplus that players will get this year. Every player receives $355, 449 (before taxes) because after the ten percent escrow was presented with back, there was additional money, a deficiency of $163. 5 million in total, that would have to be given back to reach the arranged percentage.

Note that only dollars were analyzed here and not any additional revenue the players take in, such as endorsement income.
