Athletes pay are a combination of salary and endorsements. In golf, because equipment makers are rich, Tiger Woods now make $100 million per year in endorsements alone!

Oscar De La Hoya had a great pay day in 2007, earning $53 million in a single fight.

For team sports, Basketball players top the list in athletes on the top salary list, with Baseball players close behind.

For team payroll, New York Yankees top all sports teams at $218 million per year. While the Dallas Mavericks top NBA team payrolls at $94 million, fewer players on each NBA team roster result in higher athlete earnings.

Including endorsements, the highest annual income for 2007 are:
1) Tiger Woods $111M
2) Oscar De La Hoya $55M
3) Phil Mickelson $51M
4) Shaquille O'Neal $35M
5) Kobe Bryant $34M
6) LeBron James $31M
7) Kevin Garnett $29M
8) Derek Jeter $29M
9) Alex Rodriguez $28M
10) Dale Earnhardt Jr. @27M

Basketball players top the list for team atheletes, probably because they have such high impact on the success of their team. Micheal Jordan was the highest paid team athelete in his days.

Baseball players have the largest contract amounts, probably because they all have long careers. The largest contract ever is for A-Rod at 275 million dollar for 10-years. The second is far behind for Jeter at $189 million for 10-years. Their long 162-game season also generates enough revenue for their salaries.

Auto racing have the highest annual contract values. McLaren pays Fernando Alonso $40,000,000 on contract, and Ferrari pays Kimi Räikkönen $51,000,000 per year.

Football and Hockey players take up few top positions at the top income list. While obviously being more exciting and violent sports, their seasons are often shorter, and their rosters are much larger, resulting in less pay per person.
