Forbes: Kevin Durant sixth highest paid athlete in sports at more $92.1 millon

In Forbes annual survey of the highest paid athletes in the world, Kevin Durant ranks sixth, making an estimated $92.1 million in 2021, broken down this way: On-the-field: $42.1 Million and Off-the-Field: $50 Million

Here’s Forbes breakdown...

Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant brings in roughly $28 million annually from Nike, a sneaker deal surpassed only by LeBron James’ ($32 million) among active players. He has recently added deals with Coinbase, NBA Top Shot and Weedmaps, but with media company Boardroom and investment firm Thirty Five Ventures, his business empire goes far beyond endorsements. NFT platform OpenSea and digital fitness startup Future are among his latest investments, and he is backing SeatGeek’s SPAC merger.
