They get paid relative to the amount of money that their sport is generating.
It's the players that people pay to see, that's why they're getting paid so much. Sheesh.
I think the last line of that was the punch line, and I think they agree with you, as do I.
You're talking about the very, very best in their industry. I would imagine that the top 300 retail insurance agents in the world make as much as players in the NBA. You can say that for a lot of industries.
