Within the next decade, but more on that in a moment. Before he becomes a net worth billionaire, LeBron first must join the billion dollar athlete club. That club currently has six members: Michael Schumacher ($1 billion), Floyd Mayweather ($1.1 billion) Jack Nicklaus ($1.15 billion), Arnold Palmer ($1.35 billion), Tiger Woods ($1.65 billion) and Michael Jordan ($1.9 billion).
When you combine his new salary and upcoming endorsements, LeBron’s career earnings will easily top $100 million every year over his four years in LA. Perhaps closer to $110 or $120 million. Even at at the $100 million level, by year four of his contract LeBron James will pass the $1 billion career earnings mark.
Assuming LeBron signs at least one more three-year NBA contract before retiring, by 2024 his total NBA salary earnings will be roughly $350 million. When it’s all totaled up, LeBron will likely retire in roughly 2025 with around $1.1 billion in career total earnings. By our estimate, if LeBron follows in the footsteps of legends like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant, his net worth will surpass $1 billion in 2035 when he 51 years old.Pls SUBSCRIBE below to our Youtube channel and mailing list to get fresh updates on money making and inspiring videos and articles.
