Sports Illustrated just released their new version of "The Fortunate 50" — the 50 highest earning athletes in America. Again, LeBron placed third on the list bringing in a grand total of $42,410581 ($14,410,581 in salary and $28,000,000 in endorsement money.)

Tiger Woods tops the list with $99,737,626 in earnings last year, followed by Phil Mickelson with $52,950,356.

The next highest NBA player after LeBron was Shaq with $35,000,000, good for fifth on the list.

Kobe, in case you were curious, was seventh, with $31,262,500.

So, yeah, Breaking News: LeBron makes a lot of money.
