Maverick Carter indicates LeBron's Nike contract is worth more than $1 billion

BY foxsports • May 18, 2016

Was Kanye West really right about something?

When West said Nike "gave LeBron a billy (billion) not to run away" on a song called "Facts", was it actually a fact?

Sure sounds like it, according to LeBron James' business manager, Maverick Carter.

LeBron signed a liftetime contract with Nike in December, and while the terms haven't been released, Carter confirmed it was a jaw-dropper in an interview with GQ.

More than $1 billion? That's even crazier. And so is this: Carter's comments suggest LeBron could've gotten even more.
