Memphis’ Z-Bo: 37th Most Paid Athlete

Memphis Grizzlies player Zach Randolph has ranked as the 37th most highly paid American athlete on this year’s Sports Illustrated’s “The Fortunate 50” list.

Z-Bo’s 2011 earnings? $17.7 million, after salary, winnings endorsements and appearance fees. That’s about $172,500 per game. Not too shabby.

In all, the 2011 list features 19 NBA players, 17 baseball players, eight NFL players, three NASCAR drivers and three golfers.
