Gilber Arenas

Never forget the Orlando Magic are still paying Gilbert Arenas.

Gilbert Arenas hasn’t played a game in the NBA in two years, but he was still one of the highest-paid athletes in the world in 2013.

ESPN recently released its list of highest-paid athletes in the world based solely on salary and prize money.   Among the Floyd Mayweather’s, Cristiano Ronaldo’s, Lionel Messi’s and Kobe Bryant’s of the world was the mercurial Arenas.

That’s right, Arena’s checked in at No. 30 on the list, ahead of Tigers star Miguel Cabrera.

The former Washington Wizards guard made more money than every NBA player except Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowitzki.

this all stems from the Wizards signing Arenas to a six-year, $111 million deal.   After being traded, the Magic used the amnesty clause on Arenas in 2011, so his salary doesn’t count against the team’s salary cap or luxury tax.
