Didn't like the Coby White pick. Preferred Rui. Now go out and make me look stupid Coby!

Good for him. Hes spent 20 years building his 'brand' and its obviously working.

My question is...what the hell do you do with that much money.

lol true. I just wonder if people that are in the 1% eventually become bored with money

This is going to being out the dredge in people. People are already envious enough of the guy without having his net worth bring out even more insecurities. Anyway Lebron isn't book knowledgeable but he seems to have a knack for investing. Still surprised how he got affiliated with Liverpool just right before they would reclaim their status after a relatively miserable 3 decades.

Earned every penny of that, carrying his teams and the league for better part of last 2 decades.

Well, LeBron doesn't seem like he's the type of person who is sick of the limelight, so I doubt that's a scenario in the near future. And it wouldn't even surprise me if he wanted to get on the spaceship bandwagon at some point, especially after his latest movie. :P

This is 100% his plan. I wonder which team it'll be. Maybe he can get in on the expansion teams in Seattle and Vegas when they happen? Otherwise I wonder who are the poorest current owners in the league...

YES!

I am on board with MJ and what he did. He stepped out of the limelight and built his own private golf course. Hell yes he did it right.

Bezos abuses his underlings, and Lebron lets ESPN and FS1 do it for him. Levels.

He can do whatever he pleases with that money. Including help move the needle for social justice causes (if he wants). Or just living an extravagant lifestyle. Spending the money will be no problem for him
so i made a deal with myself. this is the year i make my mark.
