That depends on the player. A good player will get paid around $8 million a year while a great player will get paid $20 million a year. Rookies generally only get paid $1 million a year.

I say football, some football players get paid over 120 million a year on an 8-year contract eg. Larry Fitzgerald. Plus, football is a much more popular sport in the US.

Cricket players get paid 500 million dollars a year, especially India after world cup, baseball players it is only 22 million. Cricket players are so much more rich and that's why most Indians and australians go to cricket instead of basketball, baseball, and football because there is more money.


It would be difficult to determine the overall average salary of all professional basketball players in the world. However, a simple average can be determined. The lowest paid professional basketball players are the lowest paid players in the WNBA at $35,880. The highest paid player in the 2011 season is Kobe Bryant at $24,806,250. The simple average between these is $12,421,065. This is by no means an accurate depiction of what the average basketball player makes. Basketball is played around the world, and the NBA is the most prestigious, highest paying league. The WNBA has 12 teams, six in each division (East and West). There are 684 players (currently-2011) in the WNBA. The highest paid among them (Lisa Leslie) makes $103,500, so the average is $69,690 a year. An estimate of the worldwide average for all professional basketball players would be in the area of $100,00 a year or less US.

Well it depends what sport you are talking about. Most professional sports players get paid between 1million and 2millions dollars per year.
