  1. His deal isn’t really the biggest deal.. All NBA players with super max deals which are $200mil+ for 5 years that’s 2 years less plus NBA players play half the games….

    • +Grant C LeBron and Curry make $37mil a year… Do the math. Curry’s deal is only for 5yrs $201mil his next contract will probably be more for even less years.. NBA doesn’t do long term deals… Plus NBA endorsement deals top any other 2 sports combined…

    • Mike Trout endorsements are crazy big $$ he got a Nike baseball shoe first guy to have one since the 90’s. Baseball is much more difficult that’s why they make more. No flopping or free throws.

    • Bruh look at the stats it literally is I completely understand where your coming from they make more a year but you dead wrong just look number it is forsure biggest deal ever however on ur side of argument Floyd mayweather has made more than all of them but besides Floyd mayweather now including mikes other contract he has made more than any sports player ever all there contracts added up

    • +Tan Autry I think Christiano Ronaldo is up there. I know he was the highest paid athlete last year not sure where he is now..

  2. Why don’t blacks play much baseball if there’s clearly more $$?
    Jordan one of the best NBA, tried MLB and had to go back, play with a bigger ball.

    • Because it’s a lot harder for kids in poor neighborhoods to get friends together and play baseball. But Major League Baseball has been working on that problem. If you’re good at several sports baseball is where the money is. Football players are jealous because their contracts aren’t guaranteed.

    • It’s harder for poor kids? What about Cuban’s, Venezuelans, Dominicans, Puerto Rican. Those guys are really poor and there’s plenty of them in MLB. It takes a different type of skill to play baseball.

  3. I’m just waiting for that one team to sign a player to a huge contract (1 billion)

    And didn’t the Angels not learn anything from signing long term contracts (Albert, he hasn’t done much or brought them a ring, The player they got last year (Pitcher/hitter) he got hurt and was on/off the DL at different times and now Mike Trout) somewhere down the line they’re going to regret their decision since that contract has a no trade clause or opt out clause unless the Angels can pull a Texas Rangers/New York Yankees deal down the long road
