Not so fast Steph Curry. James Harden nowhas the richest deal in NBA history. And his fellow ballers are here for it. Deets inside...

He already signed a four-year, $118 million extension with the Houston Rockets last July.

Now, James Harden has made another deal.  Another four-year extension for the bearded baller would start in 2019-20 at a salary of $37.8M, $40.8M, $43.8M and $46.8M. worth $228M through the 2022-23 season. Yeah, ish just got real.

"Since he arrived in Houston, James has exhibited the incredible work ethic, desire to win, and passion to be the best that has made him one of the most unique and talented superstars in the history of the game," Rockets owner Leslie Alexander said in the team's statement. "Additionally, the commitment he has shown to our organization, the City of Houston, and Rockets fans all over the world makes him a perfect leader in our pursuit of another championship."

That comes out to $570,732 per game. Sheesh!

Despite all the critics saying it's too much and all the salary cap talk, James' NBA colleague Dwyane Wade and new teammate Chris Paul are all the way here for all this winning:


CONGRATS!!!! To hell with the ball, lemme hold some {money}

The 27-year-old, 5-time NBA All-Star is spending this week putting on a basketball pro-camp for school aged kids in Arizona.  Sweet!

Now, who's ready to put in on a bet about whether his ex Khloe Kardashian (who's currently dating baller Tristan Thompson) will send that "Hey Big Head" text?
