The only other NBA legends to get to this stage are none other than Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, and that happened way after they retired. Earning a total of $385 million so far from his playing career, smart investments have helped LBJ go from ‘Just a kid from Akron’ to a member of the esteemed Billionaire club.
Talking about the same on Undisputed, Shannon Sharpe couldn’t stop gushing about his friend, the Billionaire King.
Shannon Sharpe praises LeBron James for getting to a $1B networth
Coming from basically nothing, LeBron James built his empire, brick by brick. James always knew how important it was to save money, and more than that, invest it. Despite earning less than $400 million through his salaries, LBJ is now worth almost 2.5x times. It all became possible due to endorsement deals, and the right investments.
Shannon Sharpe talked about the same on Undisputed. He mentioned how LBJ took care of his friends Rich Paul, Maverick Carter, and Randy Mills.
