LeBron James has earned a ton of money and the fame that comes with it. Naturally, plenty of people are very interested in how much dough he’s pulling in. They better be very good with numbers and using three commas if they want to track his earnings.
According to Forbes, King James has earned $1 billion in his career. That number includes $700 million off the court as well. He now joins some very elite company that have earned $1 billion as an active athlete.
“The historic year will push his career earnings to $1 billion, including $700 million off the court. He joins Tiger Woods, Floyd Mayweather, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in reaching the three-comma club while still an active athlete.”
To be fair, LeBron James’ listed net worth is $500 million, so that whole $1 billion is not his net worth. It’s still a ton of money that he has racked in over his career, and it’s still going strong.
Many fans have called out for the LA Lakers to see some sort of a change during this offseason. They are not happy about the Lake Show ending in the first round. LeBron James seems to be doing well. His recent offseason shirtless selfie went viral and he just threw a huge star-studded Space Jam 2: A New Legacy afterparty. Win or lose, it’s still good to be the King.
