13 Athletes Who Deserve a Raise
Professional sports is one of the few businesses where someone with a high six-figure salary can be considered grossly underpaid. And it might just be the only industry in the entire world where a $14 million salary makes you the most underpaid person in your entire field—by a long shot. Elite pro athletes’ multimillion-dollar salaries have long drawn the scorn of people who think that millions of dollars are ridiculous sums given to people “who are just playing a game.” But they have a tremendous value to their teams and to their communities. There's no other profession where a person can help generate millions more than their salary in ticket sales, merchandise, and television ratings. Doctors may save lives and LeBron James may just be playing a game, but could a doctor have as big of an economic impact as LeBron? Don’t think so.
