    America's Top 50 highest paid athletes

    SI.com - The Fortunate 50

    Tiger Woods doubles up the second place De La Hoya.

    Surprises to me:
    De La Hoya - I had no clue he made that much
    A-Rod - I thought he would have made more
    Mickelson - $47 million per year in endorsements...Wow.
    Dale Jr - He isn't even a top 5 driver in the sport yet is #10 overall.
    Peyton Manning - I bet he will shoot up the list after winning the SB
    Bonds - Only $2 million in endorsements. He really must be hated.
    Michelle Wie - She can't even win a tournament yet makes $20+ million.
    Vince Young - Didn't expect to see him on the list.
    Dwayne Wade - Will shoot up the list after his rookie contract expires.
    Pujols - Should be higher.
    Tom Brady - Should be higher.

    There are so many over-paid players on the list:
    Grant Hill
    Eddie Jones
    Jalen Rose
    Michelle Wie
    Stephon Marbury
    Jason Schmidt
    Steve Francis

    Thanks for posting this, Me and a few friends had an argument about who made more between Lebron and A-rod and I figured Lebron! Positive Rep for you!

    Dale Earnhart Jr. will skyrocket in the next 2 years once he signs a new contract that allows him more of the merchandise sales and part owner of whatever team he choses. I would guess he will be 2nd in less than 2 years. Yeah Nascar has arrived folks. Get used to it.

    88=what Wei almost shot and would been banned from the LPGA for 1 year. So she faked a wrist injury to get off the course. Now she is going to play in the John Deere against Men. It will be a bloodbath. Go Zach Johnson

    I had no idea Phil Mickelson made that much off endorsements. I knew he had his hand on a few things, but 47 mil is impressive.

    Then he is getting absolutely hosed with his $3.8 million deal. Maybe his new salary isn't included because no way does he make $3.8 now.

    Wade signed his extension last year, but it doesn't kick in until next season. He will make 12.4 mil next season.

    He may become part owner is a team but it won't be even close to the majority...especially if he goes to Gibbs or Hendrick.

    He already gets nearly 50% of his merchandise so I don't see that increasing much either...unless he starts winning.

    He should thank his dad for putting him in the Top 10.

    How about Michael Finley not being a starter but being one of the top five highest paid NBA players? I thought that was shocking.

    Little E will make 10 fold what he does right now.

    No chance will he be making $250 million per year...because that would be 10 fold. I would be that he'd see an extra $10 million but not 10 fold.

    I just noticed they had a link for the Top 20 International money makers on the top right of the page.
