The amount of money they generate is reliant upon the inflated price of the tickets and products they're representing. Obviously that's an issue of inflation and the current economic situation than anything else, but... even so.
If stuff wasn't so pointlessly, astronomically expensive (sneakers, Lakers/Heat season tickets), players like Kobe and LeBron couldn't validate earning sums of money that average Americans only dream about.
