5- NBA star LeBron James ($96.5M)
LeBron is a court superstar and a four-time NBA MVP, so he really doesn’t need an introduction. He most recently moved to the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018, when he inked a massive four-year contract for $153 million. James also owns a production firm and a media company, and he makes a lot of money through endorsements. He even founded a health and wellness firm in 2018 with celebrities Cindy Crawford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Lindsey Vonn! What a man with so many pies in his hands. James is frequently compared to the legendary Michael Jordan and is regarded as one of the best basketball players of all time. He is the only player in NBA history to have won championships with three separate teams. He clearly did well for himself with $96.5 Million in total annual profits.
