Kevin Durant made the easiest $1 million dollars of his career.
On Friday, the depleted Brooklyn Nets clinched their second straight playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Kyrie Irving played 20 games and Kevin Durant played zero games and yet, the Nets still made the playoffs behind the lead of their core from last year's team.

Despite not playing any games this season due to an Achilles injury Durant still received his $1 million bonus for the team making the playoffs.
Kevin Durant has earned a $1M bonus with Brooklyn now clinching a playoff spot. The bonus before the season was considered likely and will not impact his $40.1M cap hit for 2020-21. https://t.co/lwhsuuIgFR

In the end, Durant ended up making $38 million for the 2019-2020 season even though he didn’t play this season.
Hopefully, KD buys his teammates something special for helping him earn a cool mil.
