The WORLD's 50 HIGHEST-PAID ATHLETES
Our athlete earnings totals are derived from salaries, bonuses, prize money, appearance fees, licensing and endorsement income in the 12 months ending May 1. We do not deduct for taxes or agents' fees. This year's 50 highest-paid athletes earned $1.4 billion, or $28 million on average.
# 1 Tiger WOODS - USA
Woods has failed to win tournaments or sign new sponsorship deals since his November 2009 car crash and the infidelity scandal that followed. Yet he retains two valuable partners, Nike and Electronic Arts, both of which built businesses with Woods as a centerpiece.
# 2 Kobe BRYANT - USA
Bryant recently signed on as pitchman for Mercedes-Benz's Smart Car brand in China. His $24.8 million salary during the 2010-11 season was $4 million more than any other player.
# 3 LeBron JAMES - USA
His jersey was the NBA's bestseller this season, and he has the No. 1 basketball shoe on the market. James received a small stake in Fenway Sports Group-owned soccer club Liverpool in April when he partnered with FSG to manage his business interests.
# 4 Roger FEDERER - CHE
Federer commands the most impressive endorsement portfolio in sports, with 10 major deals including Nike, Credit Suisse, Rolex and Wilson.
# 5 Phil MICKELSON - USA
Mickelson was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis last year, but he maintains that it will have no long-term effect on his golf career. Lefty inked a deal at the end of the year as a spokesman for Amgen and Pfizer, makers of Enbrel, the drug Mickelson uses to treat his condition.
# 6 David BECKHAM - GBR
Beckham will likely be busy over the next year as London gears up to host the 2012 Olympic Games.

More deals tied to the Olympics are likely to follow.
# 7 Cristiano RONALDO - PRT
The Real Madrid star is using social media to expand his brand. Ronaldo has racked up 26 million Facebook fans, twice as many as any other athlete. He also has three million Twitter followers.
# 8 Alex RODRIGUEZ - USA
A-Rod was the top unsecured creditor when the Texas Rangers filed for bankruptcy last year. He was owed $24.9 million in deferred compensation from the record-breaking $252 million contract he signed with Texas in 2000.
# 9 Michael SCHUMACHER - GER
Schumacher's return to Formula 1 racing last year did not go as planned as he finished a disappointing ninth in the overall standings. His earnings are boosted by a strong endorsement portfolio that includes DVAG, Jet Set, Navy Boot, Audemars Piguet, Schuberth and Rosbacher.
# 10 Lionel MESSI - ARG
Messi earns $16 million annually on the pitch, and he has recently built up his endorsement portfolio, which now includes Adidas, PepsiCo, Konami, Audemars Piguet, Chery and AirEuropa.

# 13 (tie) Valentino ROSSI - ITA
Rossi shook up the motorcycle racing world when he announced he would leave Yamaha to race for Ducati starting this year as part of a two-year contract. Rossi's bid for a 10th Grand Prix World Championship failed last year when he finished third in the overall standings.
# 13 (tie) Tom BRADY - USA
The two-time league MVP signed a four-year, $72 million contract extension in September with the Patriots that is the NFL's richest deal on an annual basis.
# 15 Lewis HAMILTON - GBR

# 16 Derek JETER - USA
The Yankee captain signed a new contract in the off-season that is worth $51 million over three years. His $15 million salary this season represents a $6 million pay cut from what he earned in 2010.
# 17 Dale EARNHARDT Jr. - USA
Earnhardt has been voted Nascar's most popular driver eight straight years and his merchandise sales are tops in the sport. Junior has rebounded this year after finishing a disappointing 21st in the Sprint Cup standings in 2010.
# 18 Yao MING - CHI
Yao is one of the best centers in the game when healthy, but has missed all but five games the past two seasons due to injuries. Yao just finished the final year of his contract with the Rockets. Reebok is his biggest endorsements partner.
# 19 Dwight HOWARD - USA
In April the Orlando Magic center became the first NBA player ever voted Defensive Player of the Year three straight years. Companies usually gravitate to NBA guards for endorsement deals, but Howard is one of the rare big men who's popular with Corporate America.
# 20 Dwyane WADE - USA
Wade agreed to take a reduced salary to accommodate Chris Bosh and LeBron James under the NBA's salary cap. Wade made $14.2 million during the 2010-11 season, $300,000 less than his new teammates.
# 21 Peyton MANNING - USA
Manning earned $15.8 million last season in the final year of the then-record $99 million contract he signed in 2004. Colts owner Jim Irsay has pledged to once again make Manning the highest-paid player in the NFL in his next contract.
# 22 Ichiro SUZUKI - JAP
Ichiro signed a five-year, $90 million contract with the Mariners that expires after the 2012 season. The 10-time All-Star is wildly popular in Japan, where his endorsement income rivals baseball's most marketable player, Derek Jeter.

# 26 Jeff GORDON - USA
DuPont has sponsored Gordon's car for 18 years, but cut back its commitment this year to 14 races, leaving room for the AARP Foundation, which picked up 22 races to promote its Drive to End Hunger campaign. Gordon has won $119 million in race winnings during his career.
# 27 RONALDHINO - BRA
The two-time FIFA World Player of the Year joined Brazilian club Flamengo in January after two seasons with AC Milan. His new deal runs until 2014.
# 28 Amar'e STOUDEMIRE - USA
Stoudemire's national profile soared when he signed a five-year, $100 million contract with the Knicks in July. He led the team to a winning record for the first time since the 2000-2001 season. The bulk of his off-court earnings is from his Nike deal, which expires this summer.
# 29 Maria SHARAPOVA - RUS
Sharapova renewed her Nike deal at the start of 2010, and it has been very lucrative for the former No. 1 player. She receives royalties on her own line of apparel, which was up 26% last year, as well as for her ballet flat, which was the top-selling shoe in 2010 at Cole Haan, a Nike subsidiary.
# 30 Wayne ROONEY - GBR

Garnett has one more year on his contract with the Boston Celtics that will pay him $21.2 million during the 2011-2012 season. The 14-time All-Star signed a shoe deal last year with Chinese sportswear brand Anta, which put an end to the "lifetime" endorsement contract he signed with Adidas in 2003.
# 33 CC SABATHIA - USA
Sabathia signed a seven-year, $161 million contract in December 2008 with the New York Yankees that is the largest contract ever given to a pitcher. Sabathia can opt out of the contract after the 2011 season and secure more money, which many people in baseball expect him to do.
# 34 Jim FURYK - USA
Furyk cashed in with the biggest payday of his 19-year PGA Tour career when he won the 2010 FedEx Cup, which carried a $10 million bonus. He won three tournaments overall last year and was chosen as the PGA Tour Player of the Year for the first time.
# 35 Vince CARTER - USA
The former high-flyer has seen his scoring average decline four straight years. Carter is a free agent after earning $17.3 million during the 2010-11 season. Carter's endorsement deals include Nike, Gatorade and Steiner Sports for memorabilia.
# 36 Johan SANTANA - USA
Santana's $137.5 million contract signed in 2008 is the second biggest ever give to a pitcher after Sabathia's deal. The annual payouts climb to $25.5 million in 2013. The two-time Cy Young Award winner has struggled with injuries the past two seasons and has yet to pitch in 2011.
# 37 Tim DUNCAN - USA
Duncan can make a strong case as the greatest power forward to ever play the game, with four titles, two MVP awards and nine selections to the All-NBA first team. His current contract with the Spurs expires after the 2011-2012 season.
# 38 Chris PAUL - USA
The New Orleans Hornet point guard is the only NBA player to ever lead the league in assists and steals in consecutive seasons. Paul counts Jordan (Nike), Powerade and Upper Deck as sponsors. He also has a deal with the PBA Tour and is an avid bowler.
# 39 (tie) Mark TEXEIRA - USA

# 39 (tie) Ryan HOWARD - USA
The first-baseman signed a five-year, $125 million contract extension with the Phillies last year that runs through the 2016 season. He is one of baseball's most marketable players, and has endorsement deals with Subway, Powerade, Adidas, Topps and Verizon.
# 41 Miguel CABRERA - USA
Cabrera has run into some off-field problems involving alcohol, which limits his endorsement potential. His playing contract with the Detroit Tigers is worth $152.3 million over eight years. He pocketed a $100,000 bonus for finishing second in the American League MVP race in 2010.
# 42 Rashard LEWIS - USA
Lewis signed a six-year, $118 million deal with Orlando as a free agent in 2007 after nine seasons with the Seattle SuperSonics. The Magic shipped him to Washington in December for Gilbert Arenas in a swap of bad contracts. Lewis has seen his scoring average decline for four straight years.
# 43 (tie) Todd HELTON - USA
Helton signed a contract extension with the Colorado Rockies in March 2010 that reworked the last two years of the $141.5 million contract he signed in 2001. His $19.1 million 2011 salary was converted into a $4.6 million signing bonus and $6 million salary, plus $13.1 million deferred with interest. Helton's 2010 salary was $16.6 million.
# 43 (tie) Ernie ELS - RSA
Els continues to be one of the busiest globetrotting pros into his 40s as he picks up appearance fees around the world. The South African has racked up 68 wins during his illustrious career. Current sponsors include Callaway Golf, SAP and RBC.
# 45 (tie) Joe MAUER - USA
Mauer will be moving up the charts of the highest-paid athletes as his $184 million deal he signed in March 2010 kicks off this season. The deal pays $23 million annually for eight years. The Twins catcher is one of baseball's most marketable players and has high-profile sponsors like Nike, Gatorade, Sony and Head & Shoulders.
# 45 (tie) Dirk NOWITZKI - GER
The 2011 NBA playoffs have been a coming out party for Nowitzki, who is finally getting national attention for his dominant play. He is the first European to score 20,000 points in the NBA in a career, and he has led the Mavericks to at least 50 wins in 11 straight seasons.
# 47 Barry ZITO - USA
The $126 million contract Zito signed with the San Francisco Giants in December 2006 is the third-largest ever given to a pitcher. In addition to his $18.5 million salary last season, Zito also received a $318,000 check from the players' playoff pool when the Giants won the World Series.
# 48 Jahri EVANS - USA
The New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl guard signed a seven-year, $56.7 million contract in May 2010 that is the richest ever for an interior lineman. The deal is worth $25.7 million in the first three years.
# 49 Pau GASOL - SPA
The four-time All-Star was an instrumental part in the titles won by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2009 and 2010. Gasol signed a three-year, $57 million contract extension that kicks off with the 2011-2012 season.
# 50 Michael REDD - USA
Injuries have limited Redd to only 61 games over the past three seasons, but he still got paid every dollar of the $90 million contract he signed in 2005. Redd's contract expired after the 2010-2011 season, and he is headed for a dramatic pay cut.
