    Default LeBron James Nets Big Pay Day Thanks to Apple's Beats Buy


    King James is a little bit richer today thanks to Apple.

    Okay, he's a lot richer thanks to Apple. And that's nothing to shake a stick at, especially since LeBron James is a spokesperson for Samsung.

    The Miami Heat superstar, according to ESPN writers Marc Stein and Brian Windhorst, scored a reported $30 million pay day following Apple's acquisition of Beats Electronics:

    While James was leading the Heat to a victory over the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals, sources say the 29-year-old was finalizing what is believed to be the biggest equity cash payout for a professional athlete in history as part of Apple’s recent $3 billion purchase of Beats Electronics. Sources briefed on the situation say James realized a profit of more than $30 million in cash and stock in the Beats sale after he had struck a deal to get a small stake in the company at its inception in 2008 in exchange for promoting its high-end headphones.
    For those who love LeBron, this news comes as a major boost to the athlete's business savvy and credibility as a businessman. For his haters, it's another reason to hate. Either way, LeBron James is dribbling all the way to the bank once again.

    Just another reason NOT to buy anything he endorses.
