While the NFL allows for more massive contracts like that of Patrick Mahomes, the closest one to it in the NBA belongs to the Houston Rockets’ James Harden.

While the near future of professional sports is still in question, that didn’t stop the Kansas City Chiefs from locking down their MVP on Monday in historic fashion. Patrick Mahomes’ $503 million extension spread out over 10 years became the largest contract in sports history. While NBA teams have less money to work with, the closest contract to Patrick’s belongs to none other than Houston Rockets superstar James Harden.
