Many players are from baseball, american football( nothing to do with football) which are not global sports like Real football stars( messi ronaldo neymar) and tennis. Though lebron is quite famous but ofcourse not on ronaldo's or messi's level globally...
Cut off is quite high. 25 million dollars for last. So even if any female player made 15 to 20 million usd, they still cant make it to the list anymore. Serena is well deserved!

I'm not American or follow any of those sports but I know 3 out of 5 of those names.

Russell Wilson? No idea
Aaron Rogers? NFL and gay rumours
Lebron James? Basketball
Steven Curry? Basketball
Keving Durant? No idea

Assuming you live in the UK, unless you're an active follower of the big 4 US sports then you're not really going to have heard of many of them. Some will crossover more and I'd include LeBron in that, similarly with the likes of Kobe Bryant, Shaq O'Neal, Michael Jordan etc. Same with NFL, I'd say only Tom Brady and Payton Manning would be household names.

never heard of payton manning or tom brady, there not names in England, maybe elsewhere in the world, they could easily walk through a typical English town (not London) and they wouldn't be recognised.
