NBA LeBron James and the lifestyle of the rich and famous

LeBron James is a well-known name in the NBA world. The 33-year-old basketball player and NBA star is famous not only for his skills and talent on the basketball court but also for his philanthropic causes. But what about the lifestyle of the athlete who is worth several million dollars? James recently signed a four-year contract with the NBA team LA Lakers worth about $154 million after playing with his home team of Cleveland Cavaliers from 2014-18.

James also opened the ‘I Promise’ school in his hometown of Akron to help students who are at-risk. The public school will be supported by the charitable foundation he created, the LeBron James Foundation. James also has a lifetime contract with Nike, which was entered in 2015 for about $1 billion.

He also owns a small stake in the English football club, Liverpool FC of which he is a self-confessed fan. In addition to these, James has also splurged on cars for himself and his family. While he is said to drive a customised Kia and owns a Rolls-Royce Phantom and Ferrari, he has gifted his mother a Porsche and his wife a Ferrari Testarossa.

One of the cornerstones of James’ continued success in the NBA is said to be because of the attention he pays towards keeping his body fit. James is said to have invested about $1.5 million to ensure his body’s fitness.

This also includes using the cryogenic chamber and building a gym with a hot and an ice tub. Lastly, James’ interest in tattoos also means that cost is no factor for him when it comes to choosing his tattoo artists and parlours.

His preferred tattoo parlour is said to be Bang Bang Tattoos in the city of New York. The minimum price of getting a tattoo here is about $500 and the clientele includes the likes of Rihanna, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber among others. In more ways than one, LeBron James is, truly, in unique company.
