So last December, Nike signed LeBron James to a lifetime sneaker deal, and everyone asked just one question… how much was the deal actually worth? Maverick Carter finally shed some light on the illusive contract, and we’re now getting a better idea of exactly how much Nike put in Bron Bron’s pockets.
In a recent interview with GQ, Carter’s asked if the deal is actually worth the solid billion that Kanye West spit on “Facts.” Carter doesn’t actually confirm the figures but he responds to the question by smiling and pointing toward the sky, which indicates that the deal is worth more that we even though
“It’s a fantastic deal. Nike feels great about the deal. That’s the most important thing,”
“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.”
