the best team money can buy (part 3)
So Sports Illustrated drops the Fortunate 50 on us, the 50 highest paid athletes in any sport in the US. Once again, Tiger Woods is tops on the list with $127 million in earnings, $105 million of that in endorsements. And while I hate to keep harping on Jason Giambi, he's #23 on this list. Also probably undeserving is Stephon Marbury, at #25. He made $19 mil to help the Knicks self-destruct, not that they need the help. Also impressive is JaMarcus Russell, who made $20 million and barely played a down.
