Chris Bosh has been receiving $434k every fortnight for the last six years from the Miami Heat

Chris Bosh may have been retired for some time now, but that doesn't mean he isn't still raking in the cash.

Yesterday, the two-time NBA champion received his final post-retirement payments from his Miami Heat contract – and it's safe to say he's rolling in it.

Incredibly, Bosh has been receiving nearly half-a-million dollars every two weeks from the Heat, despite retiring nearly six years ago.

After finally calling time on his legendary career back in 2017, Bosh was still owed a huge sum of money as part of his contract agreement.

So to fulfil that, the Heat have been coughing up $434,393 every fortnight for well over half-a-decade.

But those payments came to an end yesterday with the last of his 120 instalments cashed out in full.

Combined, Miami has paid Bosh a whopping $52 million in total – despite the NBA Hall of Famer not even stepping foot onto the court since 2016.

Bosh's tale has some serious similarities to that of Bobby Bonilla.

MLB side the New York Mets have paid Bonilla $1.19 million every year since July of 2011 – and they will continue to put that money in his back pocket until 2035 too.

It all stems from a decision from the Mets to buy out the remaining $5.9 million on Bonilla’s contract back in 2000, which they ultimately deferred, meaning he's instead get payments of $1.2 million for 25 years starting in 2011.
