JAYE JAYE ATHLETES : LEBRON JAMES
Thank God Its Friday!! Ordinarily all workers should call it a week, but that's not so for most of our professional athletes as this is actually the beginning of their week. All through weekends they are found running up and down the length of fields, Swinging golf balls, Dunking those baskets, going on some tennis rallies, Driving all over the race circuits.... After the final whistle blows, they go to the Bank to cash their cheques and they start doing things ordinary men dont do.
From week to week Sportunes will be bringing you the 'Jaye Jaye' of our Sport.
Lebron Raymone James
Lebron James is an American basketball player, the pic above suggests he's the best player of his generation and arguably the greatest of all time. Nicknamed 'King James', he has an estimated net worth of $120 million.
Some of the companies he does business with are Audemars Piguet, Coca-Cola, Dunkin' Brands, McDonald's, Nike,State Farm and Samsung. Coming out of high school, he was the target of a three-way bidding war between Nike, Reebok, and Adidas, eventually signing with Nike for approximately $90 million. His signature shoes have performed well for Nike, and in 2013 he led all NBA players in shoe sales. In 2011, Fenway Sports Group became the sole global marketer of his rights, and as part of the deal, he and his manager Maverick Carter were granted minority stakes in the English Premier League football club Liverpool F.C. As a result of James' endorsement money and NBA salary, he has been listed as one of the world's highest-paid athletes. Also this year, he surpassed Kobe Bryant as the highest paid basketball player in the world with earnings of $56.5 million.
How does he spend these millions? Let's take a look at his Toys
