Nick Collison Had an MVP Bonus

Nick Collison knows what it takes to be the MVP. He was in Oklahoma City when both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook won the award. However, Collison was never that type of player. He never averaged double-digit points in any season of his 13-year career. That didn't keep the Thunder from including a $100,000 performance in one of his contracts if he were ever to win the NBA MVP award. While Collison was never a star, he did earn himself plenty of respect from opposing players—DeAndre Jordan says he's one of the toughest players he ever matched up against, simply because of the hustle and toughness he displayed night in and night out.
