We all know that Tom Brady is super rich, and I’m sure you’ve thought about what you would buy if you were making that kind of cash, but have you ever thought about how long it would take Tom Brady to make what you make?

There’s an online calculator created by BetSperts that puts some of top paid athletes up against the average American to see just how long, or how short, it would take them to make our salaries.

I looked at a few different athletes at different levels and let’s just say..oof. I need to learn how to play a sport, and quick.

If you make $30,000 per year, it would take Tom Brady just 3 hours and 7 mins. In fact, just in 30 seconds after I typed it in, Brady would have made $156.94. He earns $83.9 million per year, so if you break it down, it’s just over $9500 per hour.

If you make $54,000 which is close to the average Floridian’s salary, I hate to tell you that it would take Lebron James just 3 hours and 54 minutes. Lebron earns $121.2 million per year which breaks down to about $332,055 per day.

What about if you make $100,000 per year? Well, this should make you feel a little better as Steph Curry will have to put in a full day of work, 9 hours and 26 mins to earn that.

While a tad depressing, still kinda fun to play with. Now I’m off to work on my dribbling skills..and try to figure out how to grow another foot overnight.


What's The First Thing You Would Buy If You Won Mega Millions?

Can you imagine winning $810 million? What’s the first thing you would buy if you won Mega Millions?

Granted, the odds of winning are 302,575,350 to 1, but it’s fun to think about. And don’t forget to get your $2 ticket, after all you can’t win if you don’t play! The cash option is $470 million and after taxes it ends up being about $296 million, so you’ll definitely have some cash to spend.

You of course have some people who would be super responsible, or buy things they always wanted but never could afford, and then you have some who would blow it all and be right back to where they started in no time.

I walked around the office to see what the first thing my coworker’s would buy after they won the lottery.
