INDIANAPOLIS – LeBron James doesn’t think it’s possible to be paid his actual value under the current NBA rules. Because of it he said he’s been willing to sacrifice on his contracts. “What I do on the floor shows my value. At the end of the day, I don’t think my value on the floor can really be compensated for anyways because of the (collective bargaining agreement),” James said Friday head of the Miami Heat’s game with the Indiana Pacers “If you want the truth. If this was baseball, it’d be up, I mean way up there.” “I have not had a full max deal yet in my career — that’s a story untold,” James said. “I don’t get (the credit) for it. That doesn’t matter to me, playing the game is what matters to me. Forbes recently estimated James earns $40 million per year in endorsements and sponsorships, thanks to deals with Nike, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, State Farm and Samsung.
This article is so Lebron. I’ll grant him that everything he said actually kind of makes sense. But it’s the fact he had to say it. Like he had to be like nobody ever talks about the fact that I haven’t had a max deal yet and I get no credit for it. I don’t care that nobody talks about it but I just want to throw it out there so people talk about it even though it doesn’t matter to me. I just thought it was something everybody should know and say what a great guy I am for it even though I don’t need the credit. SHUT UP YOU FUCKING DOUCHEBAG!
