13. LeBron James, NBA
“The King” reigns in the NBA. As arguably the best player in the league, LeBron James’ $640 million in career earnings should only get bigger as time goes on. James has a reported $1 billion deal with Nike, which is still paying out, and he’s had plenty of big-name endorsements off the court, including with Coca Cola, McDonald’s, Upper Deck, and more.
UPDATE: LeBron James has signed a four-year, $153.3 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers. Being in LA will mean even more endorsements, attention, and exposure for James—how much higher on this list will he go now?
