How much does Stern make?

From Comcast SportsNet Tuesday, August 9, 2011

NEW YORK (AP) -- Two league officials say NBA Commissioner David Stern makes less than baseball's Bud Selig or the NFL's Roger Goodell, leaving his salary far below the more than 20 million that's been reported.

Some reports had Stern's salary at 23 million, angering locked-out players being asked to accept pay cuts in a new collective bargaining agreement.

One of the officials told The Associated Press on Thursday that Stern's salary is set by the advisoryfinance committee, which consists of 11 owners. The people were granted anonymity because the NBA does not release individual salaries.

Selig makes more than 18 million annually. Goodell receives about 10 million in salary, bonus and incentives.

The officials confirmed an ESPN.com report that Stern has declined to accept a pay check during the work stoppage, as he said he would when asked during the All-Star break about Goodell's plan to lower his salary to 1 during the NFL's lockout.
