MIAMI Chris Bosh is used to being at least somewhat under the radar with the Miami Heat.
Actually, he doesnt mind that.
When Sports Illustrated came out with its Fortunate 50, a list of America's highest-paid athletes, Heat stars LeBron James (second) and Dwyane Wade (11th) obviously were on the list. But so was Bosh, who came in at No. 47.
He wasnt thrilled about that.
I wish they would stop doing that, Bosh told FOX Sports Florida. Because everybody knows . Sports Illustrated, a lot of people read that. But it is what it is. Its part of the job.
Bosh recently had his Miami home broken into, with nearly 500,000 worth of goods stolen. He said that isnt necessarily why he doesnt like his income publicized so much, but that it creates distractions.
People are like, Hey, youre making this much money, Bosh said. Its like, Golly, I dont even know how much you make. But at least lets come to the table at the same time. But were under the public eye.
Yet all of this doesnt mean Bosh wouldnt mind making even more money. His salary is 17.545 million, and Sports Illustrated lists him as having 1 million in endorsements, bringing his annual take to 18.545 million.
I take whatever comes. I'm familiar with my situation,'' Bosh said about his endorsements being way lower than what James and Wade bring in. I know that things arent always going to come out of anywhere for me. But, if I get some, Im happy with it . Im always open to more. Im a businessman. So well see how it goes.
James, whose salary is 17.545 million, is listed by Sports Illustrated as having 39 million endorsements to bring his annual figure to 56.545 million. Wade, whose salary is 17.182 million, is listed as having 11.5 million in endorsements, making his total 28.682 million.
When asked how he felt about being No. 2 (behind only boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.s 90 million), James bristled, That has nothing to do with basketball.
Sounds as if James also isnt too keen on Sports Illustrateds list.

Craig Sager is just like POPS from the movie Boomerang. He is just coordinating his outfits, that is what old people do. I don’t know what D Wade is doing, but now he and Sager share a bond.

LeBron James is the second highest earner amongst professional athletes in the United States in 2013, finishing behind Floyd Mayweather.
James is projected to earn $56.5 million with $39 million in endorsements.
James is the first team-sport player in the top two on the list since Shaquille O’Neal in 2004.
If you looked at the 2011-12 and 2012-13 NBA seasons in a vacuum, you’d swear on your life that LeBron James was the greatest basketball player and leader the game has seen since the days of Michael Jordan and the Miami Heat the most formidable collection of talent since the dynastic teams of the 1970s [...]The post The Reorganization Of The Miami Heat’s Big 3 appeared first...

I remember when Miami Heat’s Chris Andersen was on the Denver Nuggets, one could find a myriad of “Baby Birdmans” strewn about the Pepsi Center; even my own child was – and still is – obsessed with the colorful character. However, I think this “Baby Birdman” is by far the cutest faux tatted one I’ve [...]The post The Cutest “Baby Birdman” Ever (Photo) appeared...
LeBron James’ tendency to act on the court during situations of contact was heavily debated over the past week.
James was shoved by Bulls backup center Nazr Mohammed during Game 3 of the Miami Heat-Chicago series and seemed to sell how forcefully he was pushed. Nate Robinson and Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said they felt James flopped on the play. After being scrutinized, James responded...
There was some question as to whether Dwyane Wade would suit up on Wednesday. With the Heat holding a controlling advantage over the Bulls in their best-of-seven series, the All-Star guard could have sat out Game 5 to rest his sore knee and fallout from his absence may have been negligible.
Still, there was no way Wade could miss this one. He may have been hurting. It may be a little...
At Marquette University, Dwyane Wade is a God. He’s thunder and lightning and pyrotechnics rolled into one transcendent badass. He’s the freaking Golden Eagle pope, the incomparable ambassador of all things MU basketball, and when he takes a crap, it smells like Dove soap and winning.
I know this because I went to Marquette.
