most basketball players make about 100,000 per basket!!! that's alot of money

The answer is a football player makes more. A football player makes 23.1 million if they win the super bowl. And a surgeon makes 329,229 a year, less then 2% of a football salery. Ans#2 Of course, that presumes that the football player in the example is one of the few hundredths of a percentage of the total number of football players who actually makes it to the Super Bowl--and that you can disregard all of the football players who make less than minimum wage working for farm teams. The handful of professional football players who actually make an enviable amount of money from the sport pales in comparison to the number of surgeons who make 6-digit incomes or more. That SOME football players make more money than SOME surgeons does not mean that ALL football players make more money than ALL surgeons. The same holds for rock musicians, drug dealers, and actors. Consider also the working lifetime for a surgeon. You don't find many football players retiring after playing for 30 years.

Basketball vs FootballBoth basketball and football are well loved sports around North America, but if you had a choice to play one for the rest of your life which one would you choose? When you are actually choosing a profession, you often think about things like how much money will I make, will I be safe, will I be able to play for as long as I like? Well the sport answer to all this is: Basketball. Football, unlike basketball is famous for their tackles, and throwing people around which happen to actually be painful. I'm not saying basketball players do not suffer injuries but it's usually things like sprained ankles, or pulled or torn muscles. Football players on the other hand have it way worse not only do they get broken bones, some even get a concussions from the impact of the tackle, and others are left with painful backs. Some of the injuries football players are faced with may end your career. Now, talking about topic of my choice; basketball. Basketball is more dominant than football when it comes to the injuries that the players sustain , but also basketball players also are paid more; and for a lot of people it's all about the money. The average salary for a football player is approximately $1,250,000 and a basketball player makes about $ 4, 900,000 which is a lot of money. The reason for this being, a NFL team has about 65 players, and so the money must be split between all of them, but in a NBA team there are about 16-20 people, and so they can have more time on the court and more time on the court equals to more pay. So why wouldn't you choose basketball?Basketball is also safer than football, as seen on television players are practically thrown around on the field and it is totally acceptable. The objective of the game seems to be to hurt the apposing team indirectly; well that's how it seems for their wild tackles on the field. Meanwhile in basketball this is not allowed, there is a system designed so that you cannot commit more than six fouls in a game. So basketball is the winner.
