LeBron James is the best player in his sport. He makes a ton of money in endorsements. He is making $19M for this season.
LeBron James says he was amazed and a little jealous when he heard Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera signed a contract Friday that guarantees him $292 million over the next 10 years.
“I said ‘wow,’ ” James said before the Miami Heat played the Detroit Pistons on Friday. “I wish we (the NBA) didn’t have a salary cap.” …
“He’s the best player in baseball, and the best players in each sport should be rewarded,” James said. “It’d be nice to sign a 10-year deal worth $300 million.”
So let me get this straight. The millionaire LeBron James wishes the NBA didn’t have a salary cap so he can make more millions of dollars? Look at his earnings from 2013. Plenty.
James is already set for life with his finances. He will accumulate more money many years down the line. Yet he’s jealous that a guy in a different sport has the opportunity to make more money than he does?
I am not rich so I don’t understand how rich people think. But the NBA system isn’t even bad and a salary cap I think is good for sports. But when a super rich man complains that he doesn’t have enough money, it’s just pathetic.
He wishes he could sign a mega deal and get paid ridiculous amounts of money. Apparently already making seven-figures this year (and making much more in the future) isn’t satisfactory for him.
Enroll him into the jelly school.
