In today’s episode of ‘news that will make you sad before the weekend’ we have LeBron James joining the BILLIONAIRE club. That’s billions… with a B.
Michael Jordan may have been basketball’s first billionaire but LeBron is the first active player to reach the status. Rumour has it LeBron has racked up more than $387 million on the court and a whole heap more off it from his business ventures.
With a friend he owns ‘SpringHill Entertainment’ a video production company worth around $300 million, owns a $90 million stake in ‘Fenway Sports Group’ and a 10% share of ‘Blaze Pizza’ worth a reported $30 mil. All that on top of his lifetime contract with Nike. Insane.
