We aren't even halfway through 2022.  However, Forbes has already crowned the 10 highest-paid athletes of the year.

They are:

Lionel Messi: $130 million.
LeBron James: $121.2 million.
Cristiano Ronaldo: $115 million.
Neymar: $95 million.
Stephen Curry: $92.8 million.
Kevin Durant: $92.1 million.
Roger Federer: $90.7 million.
Canelo Alvarez: $90 million.

That's a shade under a billion dollars if you add it all up.

Forbes uses prize money, salaries, and bonuses as well as estimations of sponsorship deals and other off-field revenue streams to calculate the earnings.

Any surprises?
