While waiting to know if he will meet on the ground the same success as in 2020 with the Lakers, LeBron James has no business complaints. The King has indeed just received a juicy check… for several hundred million dollars, just that!
The multitude of observers who criticize his game, his career, or even his personality, can hardly address the same criticisms for his activities as an entrepreneur. Outstanding player, LeBron James does not only want to leave a mark in society through its performance on the parquet floors. He has therefore been developing his extra-sporting business at high speed for years.
A contract worth several hundred million for LeBron James!
First active player to explode the billion dollar mark, the King does not intend to stop there. From then on, it multiplies the hats off the field, and continues to make its already existing activities sustainable. His firm specializing in the media, SpringHill, has also just formalized a major sale … at 9 figures, as reported by Jason Kelly of BloomBerg !
The SpringHill Company, an entertainment company founded by NBA star LeBron James and his business partner Maverick Carter, sells a “significant” minority share of shares to a group of investors including Nike Inc., Epic Games Inc., Redbird Capital Partners and owners of the Boston Red Sox. The deal establishes the value of the company at around $ 725 million, SpringHill said in a statement today.
On the shelves for several months, this arrival of Nike, Epic Games & Co in the capital of SpringHill has everything to do with LeBron. The various multinationals involved indeed all have a more or less close relationship with the leader of the Lakers. Despite everything, the latter will keep his label of president in the board, and Maverick Carter that of CEO. In other words, everything is rolling for LBJ, who welcomed this news on Twitter.
