But in basketball you get paid much more because if your good like Lebron James, he gets about 80 million dollars. An average player in the NBA would get about 5 million to 10 million depends on how much time your on the court.
Cricket players get paid 500 million dollars a year, especially India after world cup, baseball players it is only 22 million. Cricket players are so much more rich and that's why most Indians and australians go to cricket instead of basketball, baseball, and football because there is more money.

Football is also the #1 organized sport in high school, followed by basketball, track & field, baseball/softball, soccer, and cross-country. Football is even a bigger winner when you consider that it is played almost entirely by male students, whereas the other sports include both male and female athletes.
