I am sure you guys heard about Steph Curry and James Harden deals that they signed. Both made people's jaws drop. But it got me thinking: every single year, we always drop our jaws for some insane contract deal.


So how many years do you guys think it will take before a NFL/NBA/MLB player sign a 1 billion dollar deal? And which sport do you guys see it happening in?

So far James Harden signed a contract extension worth 228 million over 4 years which is almost a quarter billion.

Sorry to kinda go off topic, but I just want to say I'm pretty sick to damn death about NFL players complaining about NBA players.

If you wanted to make that money, you should have played basketball.

But more importantly, you need to start acting like you understand basic math.

12 players per team for the NBA.
53 players per team for the NFL.

NBA has 8 billion annual revenue.
NFL has 14 billion annual revenue.

The NBA has 22 percent the roster size of an NFL team.
The NBA has 57 percent the annual revenue the NFL does.

If NFL players got paid the same as NBA players, the NFL would not make money, so NFL players need to stop being so damn stupid.

Are we talking about a 10 year $100 million per year deal, or an athlete that earns a billion dollars?

Tiger Woods has earned 1.4 billion dollars since 1996. He was making $100 million per year at his peak.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/kurtbadenhausen/2016/12/23/tiger-woods-net-worth-740-million-in-2016/#7ab8e2be1227

If we are talking about a billion dollar contract from a singe team, I hope we never see that, it is quite the inflation. For example: this site has the total NBA revenue for 15/16 at 5.87 billion dollars.

i'd say 10 years and i think it will be in baseball. we've already seen it break $325m. there's already been 6 MLB deals above what Harden just got.

If the NBA got rid of max contracts we could see it there.

A 20 year old LeBron James is easily worth a 15 year, $1 billion deal.

Doesn't even have to be a guy as good as LeBron. I bet Karl Anthony Towns could get that today if he was a FA.

I'm going to say soccer in about 5-10 years. Don't the top tier guys get about $30 - $40MM a season?

Wouldn't shock me if its soccer player, cricket player or formula 1 driver.

Mayweather is about to make over 100 mil for one fight. Not sure there's anything that compares to that.

Against someone who is essentially an amateur athlete in the sport too, makes it even more crazy.

I think MB is on to something here. Conor could be the first.

Imagine if he hurts Mayweather, doesn't win but knocks Mayweather down a fw times. Conor becomes a hero around the world.

Conor then fights Khabib in Russia for some sick unreal PPV numbers and wins in Russia , furthering his LEGENDARY status.

His next fight after the Khabib -Russia fight , will be something monumental, HUGE...

It's going to happen sooner rather than later and there'll be outrage. Again I'm all for these guys getting paid but some of these contracts are getting out of hand. No athlete is worth that much money.

By definition, they are worth that much money if someone is willing to pay them.

That will never happen as long as Dana acts like his pimp.

just did a quick math on the NBA. If it keeps growing like it has the last 15 years, Steph Curry's current contract will be a 5yr $1billion deal in 30 years.
