New York: Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James could make more than $1 billion in his lifetime endorsement deal with sportswear manufacturer Nike, his business manager indicated in an interview with GQ magazine.
Maverick Carter, agent for the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player, was asked on Tuesday about the assertion by rap singer Kanye West that James' Nike deal was worth $1 billion.
"It's a fantastic deal. Nike feels great about the deal. That's the most important thing," Carter said.
"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."
