Basketball players get paid so much because they demand so much attention. Most people would pay cheap money to get in to see their favorite team play their most hated enemy. The question is, how high should the price of tickets go? Since the ticket prices are that high, the players get paid to play that amount of money. And, because they are just simply way to talented.

That is true in a way. In the US basketball is more popular than soccer. That is why basketball players are paid more. In other countries, soccer is more popular so soccer players get paid more. Soccer in the US is becoming increasingly popular. Soon soccer players could be paid as much as basketball players.

College and High school do not get paid. If you are in the NBA usually the owner of the team will negotiate with the basketball players agent. They usually get paid on how popular or good they are but they get about 20 to 30 million dollars a year.

In Germany, pro players don't get paid as much in the NBA, because there is not as much money to command from. They are paid 75% of the minimum NBA salary in beer.

Because the market for NBA games is larger than WNBA games, therefore, they make more money.

Yes soccer players get paid more than basketball player. The reason for this is that Basketball is mostly funded by the US. Soccer is funded by many countries. So soccer is the higher paid sport.
