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. Chris Tomasson can be reached at christomasson@hotmail.com or on Twitter @christomasson.
