Forbes.com: World's Highest-Paid Athletes

8 of 11

# 3 Kobe Bryant

Total earnings: $61.9 million
Salary/winnings: $27.9 million
Endorsements: $34 million

Bryant had the highest salary in the NBA for the third straight year during the 2012-13 season. His $27.85 million salary is $7 million higher than any other player. Bryant made the All-NBA first team for the eighth straight year this season and passed Wilt Chamberlain for fourth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Bryant is still a huge draw, particularly overseas where he had the NBA’s best-selling jersey during the 2011-12 season. This year Bryant added Hublot to his endorsement roster, which already included Nike, Coca-Cola, Turkish Airlines, Lenovo, Panini and Mercedes-Benz. (AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
