Can you believe it Basketball player Kevin Garnett is currently in a six-year contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves that will pay him 120000000 with an included 10000000 signing bonus Sure it may seem like a lot but just think about how much he gets to keep and what he has to go through He will have to pay about 50 of his earnings in taxes and pay his agent about 10 After all is said and done he will receive roughly eight million dollars a year Lets not forget he will have to go through in the next six-years He will have no truly personal life because he will be followed by the media 24 hours a day 7 days a week He will play at least five hundred games In half of those games he will be roughed up and get pushed around by the opposing teams He will also risk the chance of getting injured in any game which may cause him his career So do athletes such as Kevin Garnett deserve to get paid high dollar amounts I believe so Athletes do deserve to be paid based on their risk of health exploitation of public image as well as their contribution to fan satisfaction Most athletes are based on game-by-game basis while athletes such as golfers and tennis players are paid based on their performance at individual events and do not receive a fixed salary Players such as Michael Jordan earn 78 million a year 31 million in salary plus 47 million in endorsements because that is what the market is willing to reward him Who pays an athletes salary one may ask Salaries are paid in a collaboration business compact contract between the owner and the player himself Many contracts also come with a few million dollars as a signing bonus and are even guaranteed to receive some sort of additional compensation if their team is successful in the post-season
