Famous Athletes' Earnings from Past Decade Are Well Short of Powerball Winner's

Vanessa de Beaumont, Bleacher Report

Ever envied your favorite athlete's monster wages?

Well, win Powerball's humongous, $1.5 billion jackpot, and you just may become the envy of those professional players.

To put the historic lottery's payout into perspective, its prize-claimer would walk away with almost twice the dough superstar golfer Tiger Woods has acquired over the last decade. 

Even famously wealthy boxing champion Floyd Mayweather's 10-year earnings amount to less than half of what the Powerball promises.

As for greats like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Phil Mickelson? They're each more than $1 billion short.
