LeBron James makes more money than the three Premier League's best paid playersPer season, the NBA legend of LA Lakers earns more than if you put together the salaries of Gareth Bale, Kevin De Bruyne and David De Gea.
LeBron James is, without a doubt, one of the most outstanding athletes on planet Earth. And not just because of what he does in the NBA playing for the LA Lakers, but because of the amount of money he makes doing it. The legend has a huge net worth estimated in $500 million, but still, he does not stop counting money.
As per Forbes.com, this one will be the year in which LeBron James will hit $1 billion in lifetime earnings, taking into account his $39.2 million salary and a total expected revenue of $95.4 million through these 12 months with endorsement. His portfolio counts with AT&T, Beats, Nike, Walmart, Rimowa, GMC and Blaze Pizza and now Mountain Dew.
In this way, it can be said that, in one year, LeBron James will earn more than soccer players Gareth Bale ($42.6 million per year at Tottenham), Kevin De Bruyne (around $22.75 million per year at Manchester City) and David De Gea ($26.65 million per year at Manchester United) combined, who are the three highest paid players in the Premier League, if it's only taken into account their salaries. Together, they reach the number of $92 million. Not enough...
Despite the reports claim that LeBron James is joining the billionaries club only after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo did, the information coming from Celebrity Net Worth just speak about fortunes of “just” $ 400 and $ 500 million respectively.
On the other hand, it should be noted that the second NBA player who earns the most money per season is Stephen Curry: His total translates to $74 million. The Golden State Warriors pays him a salary of $34.4 million and the point guard also receives another 40 million for advertising and investments with his company Unanimous Media.
