In 1994, Kan provided the first example of maps with intermingled basins. The Kan example corresponds to a partially hyperbolic endomorphism defined on a surface, with the boundary exhibiting two intermingled hyperbolic physical measures. Both measures are supported on the boundary, and they also maximize the topological entropy. In this work, we prove the existence of a third hyperbolic measure supported in the interior of the cylinder that maximizes the entropy.We also prove this statement for a larger class of invariant measures of large class maps including perturbations of the Kan example.
