I believe that athletes salaries will not always benefit the athlete because some use they money poorly, they only do their job for a segment of the year, and some do not even do anything in games, but are still paid millions.

If you know something about marketing, you would know that sells always respond to the demand, and sports have a lot of demand actually NCAA estimates that only college sports earn 871 million dollars a year. So the athletes would laugh if you paid the a thousand dollars a week, maybe the don't do much but it would be unlogicall that the team paid them less than 1% of what they earn.

One of your arguments was that some of them use their money poorly, but that's their choice most of the artists spend their money in drugs, sex or things like a mansion for their puppet so that's completely not a good argument.

And okay they work for a segment of the year, but they paid them for a segment of the year. I'll give you an example in Alaska people work half a year to extract gold and their isn't a problem in that with what they earn, they live the rest of the year.

The last argument you wrote was that some of them don't even play but they are also a very important part of the team. They are like the extra wheel of your car, you have never use it but when you need it it save your day.

And finally just if this wasn't enough think about this many of them make donations and use their money wisely. Also a lot of them give everything in the field and play most of the year, so just think about it.
