The Fortunate 50


Recommended Posts

SI did this interesting article showcasing the top 50 highest paid professional athletes of all sports. Kinda surprised where the first football player is ranked....

Cant believe how many NBA players there are.... do that many people watch/ care about the NBA??? I cant remember the last time I actually sat and watched a whole game on tv. People bitch about how the baseball players are overpaid, but look at basketball!

And football, the #1 sport in america, and peyton is so far down the list. Thank you hard salary cap.

There are so many fewer players on hoops rosters I wonder if that's the reason? More games (although with smaller attendance than the NFL) + fewer players = more $$ per player. Baseball too though their roster is larger than the NBA.
