LeBron

Just For You LeBron Enthusiasts

LeBron James refused to speak to Enes Kanter last week before the Los Angeles Lakers' game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden. The reason is clear that Kanter has interfered in the political sphere of other countries, especially protests about what is happening in China. LeBron seemed to know that what Kanter did could shake up the NBA and its business.

In 2019, James refused to speak to Daryl Morey (then manager of the Houston Rockets). This is after Morey posted support for Hong Kong independence on his personal Twitter account. Although Morey finally deleted the upload, it had already caused turmoil between the NBA and Chinese communities.

Because of Morey's actions, the NBA had to fight desperately to gain the trust of China. Because, Morey's comments made the NBA lose money. When China didn't broadcast their games, the NBA lost about US$200 million or equivalent to 2.8 trillion rupiah. Meanwhile, the event also affected the business of selling sports products. LeBron and Nike also suffered losses.

Learning from the case that occurred in 2019, it seems that the NBA and its business partners must be careful with issues related to China. In recent months, the Celtics' Enes Kanter has continued to launch political criticism of China. He recently proposed a boycott of the 2022 winter Olympics in China. He was also wore a T-shirt that reads "Free Tibet, Free Taiwan, Free Hong Kong".

Not only that, Kanter also used shoes as a means of protest. This certainly had a huge impact on Nike's business, for which we know one of its main ambassadors was LeBron James. Quoted from kcby.com, LeBron said that Kanter was taking advantage of him. "He (Enes Kanter), tried to use my name to create a bigger influence, for his own sake," said LeBron.

LeBron must be careful when dealing with China. Especially when Kanter had already brought up the name Nike in his protests. Because LeBron himself earns about US $ 30 million or the equivalent of 429 billion rupiah every year from Nike. Meanwhile, revenue for the sale of Nike products related to the NBA in the Chinese region as a whole penetrated US $ 6.6 billion or worth 94.4 trillion rupiah.

So it's clear that China has a big influence on the NBA and its derivative businesses. The NBA must also be careful in responding to the statements of its stars, especially those concerning political issues of other countries. Currently, the NBA and Nike chose to remain silent with Kanter's actions. They don't want the events of 2019 to repeat itself.

How Did China Have Great Influence in the NBA?

According to data compiled by Yahoo!Finance, the Chinese market already accounts for 10 percent of the NBA's overall revenue. And, in fact, that number continued to grow before Daryl Morey's comments about China that cracked the relationship between the NBA and China.

Initially, the NBA saw China as part of the future market, as well as a contributor to their finances. The NBA has two major partners in China, namely Alibaba (BABA) and Tencent (TCEHY). China's two largest technology companies by market capitalization. The NBA had already stepped up the two partners' deals before Daryl Morey screwed it up in 2019.

Alibaba is one of the companies that licenses NBA merchandise on e-commerce sites. Although Alibaba has been selling NBA merchandise licenses on Tmall since 2012. However, the NBA has not interfered in this matter. Because with Alibaba Tmall, Taobao, and Youku, the NBA can sell merchandise to 700 million Chinese consumers.

Then Alibaba executive Joe Tsai bought the Brooklyn Nets, directly adding value to the club for US$2.35 billion. It is possible that the price will increase in 2020. Because the Nets are a team that has a high selling price, with stars such as Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving.

Meanwhile, Tencent has been the NBA's official digital partner in China since 2015. The extension of the deal with Tencent includes live streaming of matches. Tencent is the exclusive provider of the NBA League Pass in China, plus additional video content on Tencent's extensive list of websites and apps, including QQ, WeChat, and Weishi (Tencent's version of Vine).

The NBA itself said that 490 million Chinese fans watched games via Tencent during the 2018-19 season. That number had dropped dramatically in 2019 to 2020. But when China began to open up to the NBA, Enes Kanter had the opportunity to be a troublemaker. In 2019, the NBA has announced that the deal with Tencent was worth around US$1.5 billion over five years (until 2024).

Since the NBA's "free agent" transfer market opened, the Los Angeles Lakers roster has undergone many changes. Starting from the arrival of Russell Westbrook, to young stars like Malik Monk and Kendrick Nunn. However, this change in the composition of the players brought criticism. LeBron James as the main star of the Lakers finally answered the criticism.

The Lakers intend to create a more competitive team for the 2021-2022 season. However, their movement in the transfer market is considered very aggressive. So that more and more questions arise, what will the Lakers team look like next season.

From the guard side, the Lakers have  Westbrook. Wayne Ellington, Talent Horton-Tucker,  Malik Monk,  and  Kendrick Nunn. In their forwards are LeBron James, Kent Bazemore, Anthony Davis, Carmelo Anthony, and Trevor Ariza. In the flashlight position were Marc Gasol and Dwight Howard.

Westbrook and Nunn are no longer in doubt. But it was Ellington and Monk's presence that was questionable. Are they able to cover the weakness of the Lakers in terms of three-point shot accuracy. Netizens also questioned the division of tasks between Anthony Davis, Ariza, Gasol, and Howard. The discussion now is about guessing the strategy that will be used by Frank Vogel is also a hot discussion.

In addition, netizens also criticized the player's age. ESPN released a data on the NBA, namely the average age of players on their roster. Currently, the Utah Jazz 2000-2001 season topped the rankings for having an average age of 32.6 years. In second place is the Houston Rockets for the 1997-1998 season with an average age of 32.4 years. The legendary 1997-1998 Chicago Bulls were in third place with an average age of 32.1 years.

If you look at the current roster, there are 8 of the 13 Lakers players who are 32 years old or older. If this roster becomes the official composition next season, the Lakers will be the first team in NBA history to have a roster with the oldest average age.

This netizen's criticism and ridicule also reached the ears of LeBron James. To the extent that "The King" must make a firm statement, to answer all the criticism and ridicule of his team next season.

"Keep talking about my squad, the age of our rosters, about the way they play, about the injuries and how we spent our time in this league. Please help me!!! And I mean please!!! Keep the same energy when the league starts That's all I ask. #Thank you," wrote LeBron on his personal Twitter account.

That statement can mean two things. LeBron is pleased with the criticism because it can lift the spirit of his team. Or, conversely, LeBron doesn't like his team to be the subject of ridicule on social media.

Lebron so confident about the rosters he got on facing next season. He believes this squad would go far and do something great, he feels that next season will getting more intersting, lots of player transfers that make the NBA league more competitive.

The achievements and abilities of LeBron James have made him one of the legends in the basketball world. LeBron James' most famous achievement is winning the MVP in 2014 4 times in a row. However, did you know that LeBron James is also known for these 10 unique things?

Right Hand = Left Hand

Although you always see this athlete playing basketball with his right hand, LeBron James can actually do various activities using both hands. For example, LeBron used to write and eat with his left hand.

Reportedly, very few people can smoothly use both hands for activities. 90% of the entire population in the world uses their right hand for activities, and 10% of them are left-handed or ambidextrous (can use both hands skillfully).

Former Football Athlete

This fact is still very rarely known to people. When you hear the name LeBron James, the first thing that comes to your mind is basketball. But in fact, during his high school days, LeBron James was better known as a good american football player.

LeBron James once represented his school Vincent-St. Mary's High School and managed to catch 103 shots with a throw distance of 2,065 yards. Not only that, LeBron James also managed to score 23 touchdowns while he was playing. I can't imagine if LeBron James is known as a football athlete rather than a basketball athlete.

Art Lover

It turned out that what raised the spirit of a LeBron James when he was in high school was not only football, but also art subjects. Yes, LeBron James's interest in art can be seen from his shoe designs that are different from the others.

Owning a Stake in a Football Club

For LeBron James, being a basketball player doesn't mean you have to lock yourself away from the world outside of basketball. In fact, LeBron James fell in love with the famous English football club, Liverpool FC.

His love for this football club prompted LeBron James to invest there in 2011. This is the first time Liverpool football club has distributed its shares to a professional athlete. It turns out that LeBron James really loves many types of sports, doesn't he.

A Cartoon Fans

Although LeBron James looks very dashing with a height of up to 2 meters, this athlete turns out to be a fan of watching cartoons. When he has free time, he spends it watching his favorite cartoon, Spongebob Squarepants.

Because of his love for this cartoon, LeBron James is willing to be a guest star in an episode of the Spongebob cartoon entitled "Truth or Square", where he plays himself.

In addition, LeBron James also likes watching Tom & Jerry cartoons. The funny thing is, this athlete took the time to watch cartoons while he was waiting for his children to go to school. Wow, maybe women can immediately have a heavy crush on a man who has a heart like an innocent child.

Loyal Type of Guy

It turns out that not all famous people have a hobby of changing partners, you know. For example, LeBron James who has always been faithful to his wife for years.

This athlete first dated his wife, Savannah Brinson, when he was in high school. Then they got married in 2013 and their marriage was not too much of a media gossip because their relationship was going smoothly.

Well, this really needs to be emulated not only for famous people, but for you too.

In the world of NBA basketball, entering the age of 30 to 35 years can be said to be the last period possessed by every player to be able to continue to look excellent. Rarely among those aged 36 to 40 years remain in shape or have an impressive physique when competing.

At present, LeBron James is 32 years old, which means that soon, he will retire. At least, the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar player is certainly not necessarily going to play for another 10 years. If you have retired, surely the basketball player who is also familiarly called King James will not get a salary as a player.

For this reason, it would not hurt if, from now on, he began to try to invest in opening a business or doing other activities to maintain income.

By already having a big name capital in the world of sports (not only in the basketball world), surely LeBron James will have no trouble if you want to open your own business. Following this, Lebron15outlet.com shares some of the work that can be done by LeBron James after he retires later:

Lebron-Coach

Coach

For a professional athlete in a particular sport, not a few of them decide to become a coach when he retires. This is certainly not strange, and it can even be said to be very reasonable. That is, the athlete proves that he loves the sport he is in.

Look at the closest who can achieve success as a player or coach of the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr. While still active as a player, Kerr had felt the title for four consecutive years in 1996 to 1999 and in 2003 with the Chicago Bulls and the San Antonio Spurs.

When he became a coach, Kerr, in his inaugural season who handled the Warriors in the 2014/15 season, immediately won the title. Likewise, in the 2016/17 season yesterday, the 51-year-old coach also returned to give the title of the champion to Stephen Curry and his friends.

LeBron James can certainly follow this step if he has retired later. First of all, of course, he can attend the coaching school first to get a license or certificate, proof of his worthiness to be a coach. If the player who plays as a small forward is willing to try from zero or really from the bottom, LeBron James can try to train the basketball team in middle or high school schools in America.

Maybe, it can be started from his old school in St. Vincent-St. Mary, only after that, he coached the amateur team or the bottom team in the NBA. LeBron James is also certainly likely to be able to train his Cavaliers team, considering himself already considered an icon or legend for the team based at the Quicken Loans Arena.

Open a Sports Shop

LeBron James Sports Center or LeBron James Sport Shop. By using the big name he has in the world of sports, it is unlikely that he would be empty of visitors if he opened a sports shop in the United States. The sports shop that he opened, of course, was devoted to the sport of basketball that he was involved in, it could be in the form of clothes or basketball training pants or for the gym, or it could be a set of basketball clothes according to the design he wanted.

Not only clothing, of course, he can also sell other sports equipment, such as shoes, sports socks, headband, armbands, for basketball, bags, drinking bottles, glasses, and much more. The area that he could use was certainly in the City of Cleveland and Miami, where the two cities were the teams he had defended.

Basketball-Team

Buy a Basketball Team

According to data from Hoopshype, in the 2017/18 season, LeBron James will receive a salary of USD 33,285,709. With such a large amount of money, it would not hurt if the basketball player identical to the back number 23 planted a stock by buying a basketball team.

Of course, for the initial stage, LeBron does not need to buy the team in full, because if he only puts a small portion of the stock, at least he also can certainly have a small profit.

Yes, in addition to the Cavs, LeBron has also strengthened the Miami Heat from 2010 to 2014, at which time he was truly at the peak of its glory. Also, he can open other branches in major cities in the United States, such as Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, New Orleans, and Washington DC. Only then can he open branches in other countries which certainly have a high enough interest in basketball.

Open the Ice Cream Shop

Who doesn't like to eat ice cream? From children to parents, of course, like this cold sweet snack. This snack is indeed like a good friend when we are relaxing.

LeBron James himself once provided an ice cream truck outside the Quicken Loans Arena field to his fans and distributed it for free, which he did in the inaugural NBA 2016/17 match yesterday. By opening an ice cream shop business, of course, will increase revenue for LeBron James if he has retired later.

Barbershop

At present, men's hairstyles are already diverse. It is very rare for male visitors who want a haircut only short, bald, or "just cut it off bang." But many kinds such as uppercut hair, slick back, spiky, undercut hair, Mohawk, and many more.

Certainly, if LeBron James opens a barbershop, surely he will never be empty of visitors. Moreover, if LeBron occasionally takes the time to be in the barbershop to entertain or greet his fans.

Open Online Gambling Site

Certainly, online gambling site is one of the best money makers nowadays. While the site is using his name as the brand, many fans would bet their teams here on LeBron's site. One of the successful sites that can be set as an example is Yukbola, with their primary product on sportsbook, this site gains a huge profit from all over the world.

Megastar LeBron James wrote a touching message for the late Kobe Bryant. The tribute was uploaded by James on his Instagram account page, Thursday (15/10) or three days after delivering the Los Angeles Lakers to win the 2019/2020 NBA.

"Hopefully what I have created can make you proud, brother. Love and miss you, champion !! " wrote LeBron while displaying a photo with Mamba wearing a jersey with the jersey number 24.

The Lakers ended their wait for the championship after winning 4-2 on aggregate over the Miami Heat in the best-of-seven format NBA Finals. This success was fulfilled after the Lakers won 106-93 in the sixth game, Monday (12/10).

The other three Lakers wins were in the first game 106-98 (1/10), the second game with a score of 124-114 (3/10), and the fourth game, 102-96.

The Lakers' two defeats came in the third game, when they surrendered 104-115 on October 5 and the fifth game when they lost 108-111 on October 10.

The Lakers dedicate the victory to the late Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash, 26 January. James and Anthony Davis even tattooed their bodies with the image of Black Mamba and imagined Kobe playing together in their minds.

kobe-lebron

James's achievement for the Lakers also fulfilled his promise two years ago. When he decided to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Lakers, at that time he announced his goal was to return the Lakers to the top of Uncle Sam's country basketball. This desire was strengthened by the presence of Davis, who came to the Lakers through trading channels from the Pelicans, last year.

When Bryant died, James promised to continue the legacy of achievements Bryant had carved with the Lakers. James now has four championship rings, a symbol of the NBA rulers, in his career. This success was obtained by defending three different teams, namely the Heat, Cavaliers and the Lakers. Now, he is only one adrift of Bryant's five-time NBA championship record.

Today's athletes are arguably no longer like sports players but world celebrities, with high fame and income due to their achievements.

Many ordinary people often think that high income is only owned by soccer players. Because, this sport is the most famous in the world and profitable.

But in fact, this is not the case. There are still many world athletes from other sports circles, who are also able to reap high salaries, one of which is in basketball.

Just like football, basketball today, especially in the NBA, is very thick with the business world, because its popularity is so high that it makes many advertisements and investors enter.

As a result, the club benefited from obtaining financial coffers. In addition, players have also been sprayed by the payment of very high salaries.

In the NBA itself, the name LeBron James, who last season led the LA Lakers to victory, is not the player with the highest salary in the NBA.

James was paid US $ 37,436,858. James was sixth on last season's earnings list. In fact there are five players whose salaries are higher than LeBron James. Here's the list:

1. Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors) - 40.2 million US dollars

Stephen Curry was able to beat LeBron James in three out of four meetings in the NBA Finals. This time Curry is back ahead of LeBron James in terms of income in the 2019/20 season.

Despite being plagued by injuries and playing only five games last season, Curry won $ 40.2 million. That is the highest salary for the 2020 NBA players.

2. Chris Paul (Oklahoma City Thunder) - US $ 38 million

Chris Paul earned a salary of more than 38 million US dollars in the 2019/20 NBA season. This is the basketball basketball player's first season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, after the 35-year-old previously played with the Houston Rockets.

Paul is predicted to get up to 85 million US dollars over the next two seasons. In match records, Paul scored an average of 17.6 points and 6.7 assists in the regular season.

3. Russell Westbrook (Houston Rockets) - 38 million US dollars

Like LeBron James, Russell Westbrook is also a versatile player. Westbrook scored three times the average of the most doubles over the entire season.

Best-NBA-Players

He also won the 2017 NBA MVP. In his first season with the Houston Rockets, the player averaged 27.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.0 assists per game, for a fee of over $ 38 million.

4. John Wall (Washington Wizards) - 37.5 million US dollars

In the 2016/17 season, John Wall served the final year of his contract with the Washington Wizards. He is able to score an average of 23.1 points and 10.7 assists per game.

Then, John Wall made a contract extension for four years worth more than 170 million US dollars. Since then, he has played only 73 games, and last season he did not play due to an Achilles injury.

But in fact, John Wall still has a bigger salary than LeBron James.

5. James Harden - 37.2 million US dollars

Just before the NBA was stopped last March, James Harden was the leader in points scoring with 34.4 points per game. In fact, he has the opportunity to become the top scorer in the league in three consecutive seasons.

Last season, Harden's salary was exactly the same as John Wall's, 37.2 million US dollars, or only a few hundred thousand different from LeBron James.

One of the items that basketball lovers must have is shoes. Later, basketball shoes can also be used as daily fashion supporters. So, what should you consider before buying basketball shoes?

The large size and shape of basketball shoes are made not without purpose. Basketball is a sport that relies on leg strength even though it is not played like soccer. At least when you run and jump while you shoot the ball or grab it under the ring, leg strength comes first.

The weight received by your feet does not mess with these movements. In order to protect the feet on which this game is based, so many sports apparel compete to release products with various technologies that support the game.

One of the most important is the shoe sole that is hard and not slippery. The stiffness of the sole material will provide resistance to intense movements when playing basketball. Meanwhile, the non-slippery material also makes it easier for you to accelerate when playing, whether you're running, avoiding control, or doing stealthy movements.

Not only that, your playing position on the court can also be a consideration when choosing basketball shoes. For those of you who play as guard and forward, shoes that have light weight will be very helpful, considering the players in that position will need aggressive movements.

Meanwhile, for those of you who play as center and power forward, a good sole is very important. This will lighten the weight of your legs when you land after the rebound.

For those of you who like to play basketball, of course many of you already have your favorite basketball shoes, or even favorite apparel that makes you lazy to switch to another brand. One thing is certain, each brand must have its own advantages.

NBA Player Series

You could say that the basketball shoes used by NBA players are the ones most often sought after by basketball fans. These considerations made a number of giant apparel in the world to issue special editions of NBA stars, from Nike, Adidas, to Under Armor.

You could say Nike is quite widely used by NBA players who have become idols for basketball fans around the world. Even Nike did not hesitate to issue a special edition of NBA players.

lebron-edition-shoes

Air Jordan which is the Michael Jordan series, then Kyrie and Bandulu which is the Kyrie Irving series, Nike Mamba which is the signature of the LA Lakers legend, Kobe Bryant, to LeBrone Soldier and LeBron 16 Buzz Lightyear which is the LeBron James series.

Adidas also did the same. Damien Lillard has a signature shoe called Adidas Dame. Then there is Adidas Harden which is the signature of James Harden.

Meanwhile for Under Armor, Stephen Curry's signature series is still the most sought after by basketball fans, such as Curry 7.

Local Products Can Be Tried

The big names of the three giant apparel in the world above are indeed so close to so many sports, including basketball. However, a number of local apparels are also not left behind to enliven this sport, considering that there are quite a lot of basketball fans in Indonesia.

A number of brands that also produce basketball shoes in Indonesia are Ardiles, League, Spotec, and Piero. However, it must be admitted that Ardiles and League are two apparels that have quite a few variants in basketball shoe products.

Ardiles even issued an edition of the DBL, or Developmental Basketball League, which is a basketball league competition for junior high and high school students in Indonesia. Affordable prices and partnerships with official basketball institutions in Indonesia make this Ardiles product quite a favorite among students.

The DBL series is also produced in various color variants, starting from Navy Yellow in Ardiles DBL Pride products, red to black variations in Ardiles DBL AD1 and Ardiles DBL Fundamental products.

Meanwhile, League issued several variants for basketball shoes, including the Levitate series which is made of synthetic leather with a dynamic cushion EVA material that can absorb loads when landing after jumping. League Levitate has several color variants, ranging from black-gold to red-black.

There is also the Fundamental League, a shoe specially made for those who play as playmakers or attack managers. The material is not much different from the Levitate series, it's just that this one is indeed a high cut model.

Not only that, there are also the League Shift and League Clash series. You could say, League does have enough variants for you basketball fans.

His neat game in the NBA made Lebron contested by the big teams. Quoted from bleachreport.com, the salary of a Lebron James reached 35 million USD in 2018.

With that much money, of course Lebron could buy what he wanted. But that's not what Lebron wanted. This player actually often uses his wealth for charity. He also founded a free school for underprivileged children in Akron.

Lebron did it all because he had felt like he was in that position. Difficult financially and not going to school. Now Lebron also has an organization called the Lebron James Family Foundation which often helps people in distress.

Cleveland forward Cavaliers LeBron James (23) shoots the ball against Chicago Bulls guard Justin Holiday (7) and forward Lauri Markkanen (24) in the first round at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, United States, Monday (4/12 / 2017).

The first quarter is only 5 seconds. The scoreboard shows 27 for the Cleveland Cavaliers and 25 points for the San Antonio Spurs. LeBron James, the Cavaliers striker, tries to dribble the ball, blocked by Danny Green. But Green is not agile enough. After entering the two-point firing area, with a backward move made in a blink of an eye, LeBron immediately jumped high and threw the ball. Blessings! The ball entered smoothly.

The audience cheered. LeBron's colleague on the bench stands and gives applause. The camera highlights LeBron's dense face with the sideburns. There is no excessive joy. He doesn't even smile. He only hugged his teammate, Dwayne Wade.

"Amazing moment. With this shot, LeBron managed to record 30,000 points," the commentator said.

January 23, 2018, the name LeBron James was recorded in NBA gold ink. He became the seventh member in the list of players who managed to record 30,000 points. In the history of the NBA, only six players have managed to do it: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, and Dirk Nowitzki (still actively playing). Even more extraordinary, LeBron became the youngest player when entering the elite list, which is 33 years 24 days, beating Kobe Bryant's record (34 years 104 days).

That night, LeBron recorded 28 points. Cleveland lost to Spurs, 114-102. But the defeat could not erase his joy. "This is a special moment," LeBron said after the match. "I immediately thought again of my journey, from the boy who first held a basketball at the age of five years, and underwent a match with the rules at the age of 9 years, until this moment."

Background

LeBron's journey to 30,000 points is indeed long and full of tombs. LeBron was born in Ohio (December 30, 1984) and raised by a single mother named Gloria Marie James. At that time, she was only 16 years old when giving birth to LeBron.
