2007 Fortune 50 Richest Athletes
 

 
1
Tiger Woods

Pro Golf
Last Year's Rank: 1
$11,941,827
$100,000,000
$111,941,827
Mighty Tiger's handlers figure sports' first $100 million man's endorsement and appearance income increases an average of 13 percent a year.

2
Oscar De La Hoya

Boxing
Last Year's Rank: NR
$53,000,000
$2,000,000
$55,000,000
One last giant pay day? On top of $25 million purse, Golden Boy took home $28 million in pay-per-view receipts from the Mayweather title f!ght.

3
Phil Mickelson

Pro Golf
Last Year's Rank: 2
$4,256,505
$47,000,000
$51,256,505
One of sports' most reliable endorsers, Lefty is now at a point where his annual take in off-the-course income outdoes his total career winnings.

4
Shaquille O'Neal

Miami Heat (NBA)
Last Year's Rank: 3
$20,000,000
$15,000,000
$35,000,000
Shaq took 20,000-square foot mansion off the market last year when no one would meet $32 million asking price. Now he's trying again -- for $35 million.

5
Kobe Bryant

Los Angeles Lakers (NBA)
Last Year's Rank: 4
$17,718,750
$16,000,000
$33,718,750
Need proof Kobe is a marketing genius? Since he switched from No. 8 to No. 24, his jersey has become the top seller in both the U.S. and China.

6
LeBron James

Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA)
Last Year's Rank: 6
$5,828,089
$25,000,000
$30,828,089
King James' $2.1 million, 11-bedroom mansion near Akron is in the process of being refitted with a theater, bowling alley, casino and barber shop.

7
Kevin Garnett

Minnesota Timberwolves (NBA)
Last Year's Rank: 11
$21,000,000
$8,000,000
$29,000,000
If dark forces are conspiring for NBA's highest-paid to find his way to L.A., don't be surprised: He idolized Magic Johnson's Showtime crew as a boy.

8
Derek Jeter

New York Yankees (MLB)
Last Year's Rank: 7
$22,000,000
$7,000,000
$29,000,000
Bronx scent? Jeter's three-step "Driven" skin-care products are a "quick and easy" way for men to take care of their face, says the Yankee captain.

9
Alex Rodriguez

New York Yankees (MLB)
Last Year's Rank: 8
$22,000,000
$6,000,000
$28,000,000
Still due $81 million over the next three years of his mega-contract, but could make more from another team if he chooses to opt out after '07.

10
Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Auto Racing
Last Year's Rank: 9
$7,111,735
$20,000,000
$27,111,735
Departure from DEI, his late father's company, will prompt an unprecedented bidding war for No. 8; Junior merchandise brings in $30 million a year.

12
Peyton Manning

Indianapolis Colts (NFL)
Last Year's Rank: 18
$10,000,000
$13,000,000
$23,000,000
Super Bowl MVP still clocks in as the highest-paid in the NFL and its top endorser -- and he's one of only five football players this year (all QBs).

21
Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Boxing
Last Year's Rank: NR
$20,000,000
$250,000
$20,250,000
Pretty Boy is the latest De La Hoya foe made very rich by the Golden Boy: Bernard Hopkins earned $15 million in '04 from his two-f!ght deal with Oscar.

22
Michelle Wie

Golf
Last Year's Rank: NR
$735,224
$19,500,000
$20,235,224
Holdin' it down for the ladies: With endorsement deals eclipsing $10 million and six-figure appearance fees, Wie should be a fixture on the 50 for years.

Does this list tell you how much they made in 2006-2007?

If so, I can not really see Lebron or any other basketball player being number 1. Tiger Woods is only 30 or 31 and you now how Golfer can play well past there fifties. And Tiger Woods could be marketable past 40 years of age.

this list seems WAY off. I guess this doesn't take into consideration endorsements....


1st, Oscar De La Hoya took home $40 million, and Mayweather Jr took home $25 million.


2nd, Where's David Beckham?
