The Apple and Beats By Dre deal is seemingly the deal that keeps on giving. While LeBron is battling the Spurs with all his strength, he did come up on some good news recently.
With the $3 Billion purchase of Beats by Apple, LeBron also scored a nice little check as he’s been a minor stake holder and owner of Beats since 2008. LeBron’s share in the deal equates to about $30 Million in cash and stocks. Thats about 10 milly more from his current yearly salary with the Heat.
And the interesting logic to this is that if LeBron keeps making off-court deals like this one with Beats, his NBA salary is basically irrelevant and its possible he can keep taking less money to continue his career in Miami or if he chooses…elsewhere. Its also interesting to note that LeBron has never been a “max” player in his career.
So props to LeBron and hopefully this keeps him motivated and fired up to lead the Heat to a win on Sunday.
