The spotlight is on the Clippers more than ever, and not just because of the Donald Sterling scandal; the team made a strong run in this year’s playoffs, and in Paul and Blake Griffin it has two of the biggest endorsement stars of the next few years. Between deals with Nike, Jeep, Powerade, Upper Deck, and State Farm (the “Cliff Paul” ads are inescapable), Paul’s endorsements are up to $4.5 million, and his salary is 11th highest in the NBA.
