The USA Today actually has a lift-out every three or four months which has every professional athlete’s salary ... You have a bunch of women cutting that out and following guys around at night clubs.

It must be strange to have your salary be made public, with people around the nation and around the Web (yours truly included) debating whether you are worth that sum.

That said, it’s part of the package of being a professional athlete, one that comes with a whole lot of perks, too. Including millions of dollars in salary.

Andrew Bogut will make $12.97 million next season as the starting center and defensive anchor of the Golden State Warriors (and to complete the circle, he is worth it by basketball standards when healthy). He has two years, $23 million guaranteed left on his deal after that season.

Bogut isn’t a fan of us having that information and the effects that follow, he told the Courier Mail newspaper back in his native Australia.
