5 richest black athletes

Here are the top five African American athletes:

1. Tiger Woods (net worth : $500 million, Sport-golf)

He is currently winning more tournaments than he is losing and as such he is just getting richer from all his winnings.

2. Kobe Bryant (net worth : $300 million, Sport-basketball, L.A Lakers)

His club is paying him a salary of $27.9 million in addition to bagging several lucrative endorsements from the likes of Mercedes-Benz and Lenovo.

3. LeBron James (net worth : $185 million, Sport-basketball, Miami Heat)

He is earning big bucks from endorsements but let’s not forget his Nike shoes which have recorded sales worth $300 million.

4. Floyd Mayweather (net worth :  $170 Million, Sport-boxing)

Unbelievably, he is worth all that money in spite of having had only one fight in a one year period. Don’t we all wish we had his job! Moreover, he has signed a deal with Showtime that could earn him $200 million if he can bag satisfactory pay-per-view sales associated with his fights.

5. Derrick Rose (net worth : $70 million, Sport-basketball, Chicago Bulls)

The Bulls are paying him a $16.4 million salary; in addition, he has a shoe deal with Adidas that has so far brought in $25 million.
