What is the potential salary for a professional athlete or a professional basketball player?

Report as

Depends on skill, money the organization is willing to give out, and the position the player plays...All these factor into salary.

I wouldn't count on that. Those are professions that you have to be at the right place at the right time.

depends on your skill level, team needs, your attitude, team needs, etc,.. but to give you an idea. a decent player will probably make 3 million a year, really good probably 10 million, if your great then 20 million (per year)

NBA players on average make way more than any other pro athlete salary. In the NBA the average player makes just over $5 million. Of course that goes up exponentially with skill level and endorsements. Of course you probably stand a better chance of winning the lottery than being one of the players to make that much.
