LeBron James will be jingling all the way to the bank this Christmas season! Nike has signed LeBron James to an insane LIFETIME contract! So, when LeBron is 80 years old he will still be cashing checks!
According to a person with knowledge of the situation, James’ lifetime shoe deal that was revealed on Monday is worth significantly more than the $500 million that has been speculated in some media reports and — at the current rate of sales — is also worth more than $30 million on an annual basis. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the financial terms.
While an exact figure hasn’t been disclosed, it’s quite clear that King James — who at 30 years of age became Nike’s first lifetime client in the company’s 44-year history — is the sneaker king of the NBA.
