Black athletes in MLB is nonexistent so you go where you maximize your wealth and I think you chose right?
You are really underselling the endorsement money a black baseball player could pull in. Baseball is starving to pull in black ball players and if a black star baseball player came into the game he would clean up in endorsements.

Not underselling at all, potential is something that hadn't been done yet. Look at probably the best black baseball player in the game today andrew mccutcheon. About the same age as lebron late 20's this years NL mvp and finish 3rd last year made 500k this year and peanuts in endorsements. Lebron probably used 500k to make it rain or wipe his butt last year but I guess I'm underselling the ability for black baseball players to land endorsements huh. It's the market man, inner city cats see bron as an aspiration, they think baseball players grew up in more affluent cities and were able to afford all the gear, all you need for basketball is a ball and a nearby park or circular shaped container. Lebron chose right as his 9 figure bank account can attest, while reigning nl mvp probably lives in a 0 bed 1 bath efficiency with no mare than 100k left in his bank smh.

And the Klitschko brothers, they are better athletes than Cain V or Jon Jones or DC or Rashad Evans? Again, laughable.

And discrediting wrestling and their athletes and comparing it to a sport like basketball is even more farcical. You aren't even taking size in to account which is obviously a huge factor in basketball. The amount of players under 6'4 or 6'5 receiving these max deals is very minute.

Calling Jordan Burroughs anything other than an A level athlete is a joke and anyone who doesn't see that isn't worth even listening to.
The Klitschkos brothers are better athletes than all of the fighters you mentioned. They are the best fighters in their division in a sport which has a deeper talent pool than MMA.
