LeBron James may not have any money troubles once his playing days finish.
The 31-year-old NBA superstar's business manager Maverick Carter suggested in a Tuesday GQ Style story that James' lifetime Nike endorsement deal may top $1 billion. Asked about rapper Kanye West's contention that the agreement was worth $1 billion, Carter "(smiled) and (pointed) one finger skyward."
"It's a fantastic deal. Nike feels great about the deal. That's the most important thing. As great as I feel, as great as LeBron feels—Nike feels fantastic about it. It's the largest deal in the history of the company. Their hope is he makes even more. And our hope is that, too, obviously," Carter told the magazine.
