When Forbes released its list this week of the top NBA endorsement earners, the Clippers had two players among the top 10.

Blake Griffin was ranked ninth, earning $6 million in off-the-court income in 2013, Forbes reported.

Chris Paul was ranked 10th, pulling in $4 million in endorsements.

Griffin has deals with companies including Nike, Kia and Subway. He also is in the first year of a Clippers deal worth $95 million and will earn $16.4 million this season.


Paul’s sponsors include Nike and State Farm insurance. He re-signed with the Clippers last summer, a five-year, $107-million deal, and will earn $18.6 million this season.
