Dwyane Wade makes top 50 highest-paid athletes, Chris Bosh doesn't

BY foxsports • June 11, 2015

This probably isn't going to help with the contract impasse between Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat.

Forbes recently released its list of the world's highest-paid athletes, and two familiar faces in south Florida are on the list. Dwyane Wade comes in at No. 31 overall, while Chris Bosh is a little bit further back at No. 52. They're the sixth and 12th highest-paid NBA players, respectively.

Bosh has a pretty hefty lead on Wade in salary, but Wade makes up the difference with an overwhelming endorsement advantage. Forbes reports Bosh's total endorsements at the tidy sum of $3 million; Wade, conversely, totals $12 million in off-court deals.

As for the highest-paid athlete in the world? Well, there's a reason he calls his goings-on The Money Team.
