    Not sure this info is accurate because salaries are all over the map with someone like JVG reported to be making 16M and Ernie Johnson less than 1M and how does Lisa Salters rate 2M as a sideline reporter. If JVG ESPN gig is paying 16M no wonder he's in no rush to get back into coaching, maybe the below salary survey includes outside earnings like book royalties or web site ownership.

    Barkley only 1 million? That’s lower than I would have expected.

    I take Barkley to be an under the table cash kinda guy.

    He does gamble a lot.

    Most of these people are utterly replaceable.

    Joe Buck is a merely competent announcer, and he's somehow parlayed that into being the most famous voice in 2 sports.

    There is no per year with JVG implying it could be his whole career as analyst.

    Just viewed this list on a desktop computer and it only displays about 20 names of the 112 names on the list but on a phone using Chrome or Firefox I can see the entire list of 120 names. They have Kenny Smith making 16M but Kevin Harlan making 400K.

    All over the board. May have been accurate at one point but it seems like they're not all updated.

    Not even close to accurate, any reasonable person could figure that out. All over the map with the salaries and if you think Lisa Guerrero is making even a million on Inside Edition...as a correspondent, not even a host then you'll probably believe Barkley is only earning a million on Inside the NBA.

    I think Barkley has to make more than that even though the TNT crew doesn't work as much as the other analysts cause they only do NBA

    Sounds like some guy just googled people and repeated whatever they found on the web. They might not have even read the articles they take numbers from.

    For example, if you google Jeff Van Gundy salary, this is one of the sites that comes up, and it mentions his *Net Worth* is $16MM.

    https://www.celebritynetworth.com/richest-athletes/nba/jeff-van-gundy-net-worth/

    Jeff Van Gundy net worth and salary: Jeff Van Gundy is an American basketball coach and TV analyst who has a net worth of $16 million.

    This is the author of this article, by the way:

    AUDREY KYANOVA
    Audrey Kyanov is a law student residing in the United States. She writes not only for work, but for school as well on a variety of legal topics. Her hobbies include painting, drawing and reading. She also has one very-badly-behaved cat, Ozo, who just turned one.

    It's a pure click-bait article by someone who used google.
