Do most Americans realize that the main reason why professional sports have become so well paid is because of the illegal gambling connection between sports organized crime and politicians?

Are you asking, or stating this assertion? Assertions are better used in declarative statements. Do most Americans realize that the main reason you asked this question was to assert that organized crime, gambling and politics is why professional athletes are so well paid? See how that sentence doesn't really work? I suspect, most Americans who pay the arm and a leg for season tickets believe it is there hard earned money that is paying these athletes. Perhaps, those advertisers who throw billions of dollars towards advertising in professional sports believe they have something to do with why professional athletes get paid so well. It is relatively certain that those people who own professional sports team believe they are the reason professional athletes get paid so well.

Why should professional athletes get paid more than a medical personel if the medical field actually benefits others?

Unfortunately, it's not a matter of "should." Professional sports teams make a LOT of money, so they can afford to pay whatever price is necessary to have the best team available. If medical personnel were paid the same amounts as athletes, only a very few people would be able to afford medical care.
