If LeBron James can rest athletically during theoff-season, he is never on business vacation. The proof, he has just announced a new partnership with a tennis superstar, which could bring him millions in the years to come!
For LeBron James, vacation time is over… After enjoying some great weeks traveling the world with his wife, he notably went to Paris for the Champions League Final, an opportunity for him to make a viral photo with a captionthe King is back to training with a former teammate that he could well attract to the Lakers. In any case, the fans would not be against this idea.
But the Lakers superstar is now much more than an NBA player, he is also a recognized business leader, and on this side he is not idle either. A partnership with Naomi Osaka, the highest-paid tennis player on the planet, has just been announced, and the two Nike athletes could achieve big things on the small and big screen. CNN recount :
LeBron James and Naomi Osaka business partners!
Tenniswoman Naomi Osaka, winner of 4 Grand Slams, will launch a new media company in partnership with LeBron James. “Hana Kuma” will produce films and documentaries which are culturally specific, but which will appeal to the greatest number of people. LeBron and his SpringHill Company will provide resources for brand development and productions.
Thanks to his SpringHill Company, which is now well established in Hollywood, LeBron James will allow Naomi Osaka to get started in the middle, a helping hand that could still pay him big. The main interested party also reacted on social networks with a rather touching message for the Japanese player.

That’s why we call ourselves a company that empowers others. She is an extraordinary woman and the stories she will bring to life are EXACTLY what we want to represent!!! I’m incredibly proud to call her my partner.
Like LeBron, Naomi Osaka tries to become more than an athlete by speaking quite clearly about the mental health of high-level players, which must have pleased the King. And then the two are linked by their equipment supplier Nike, which must have greatly facilitated the negotiations. It remains to be seen what this collaboration will bring.
LeBron James is never on business vacation, here is further proof. He intends to extend his influence on Hollywood with this partnership, which could open the doors to the Asian market. He has not finished getting rich.
