Much smaller rosters though. There are ~450 players in NBA, ~1700


in the NFL. MLB is somewhere in the middle as far as players on the active roster, but is a bit of a different animal in that there are plenty of professional players with big league contracts in the minors.

The revenues of the respective leagues are illustrative. The NFL brings in $13B, MLB $10B, NBA $6B. So yeah, the NBA brings in half the revenue of the NFL, but does so with a relatively tiny workforce (especially when you consider the size of coaching staffs and front offices). An NFL team has 22 starters w/o considering special teams...an NBA team 5.
