While nobody topped the $100 million mark this year, Lebron James and soccer stars Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are knocking on the door.

The second ten were Drew Brees ($45.3 million), Phil Mickelson (43.5) , Russell Westbrook (38.6), Sebastian Vettel (38.5), Damien Lillard (38.4), Novak Djokovic (37.6), Tiger Woods(37.1), Neymar (37), Dwyane Wade (36.2) and Fernando Alonso (36) in that order.
