It Pays to be an Athlete

Three people in the top 10 are coming off terrible years (Kobe, Tiger, Matt Ryan) but still cashed in big. It should also be mentioned that Derrick ‘I broke my knees, man’ Rose came in as the 13th highest paid athlete in 2014. The moral of the story: Get really good at something for a couple years then stink. You’ll get paid better than most of the people who keep trying.
