LeBron James has amassed over $1 billion in his career, and we’re not talking just about the NBA.
Notably, his older son Bronny James is already ahead of him when it comes to making money in one area.
The elder son of the James household currently has a NIL valuation of a whopping $7.2 million despite never even playing at the collegiate level.

That’s way more money than some NBA veterans make a year.
The NIL mania has drawn mixed reviews over the past couple of years, but it was finally time athletes could get paid for it.
Bronny hasn’t even announced his college decision yet, and some believe he could look to turn pro and make even more money.
James could choose to go the G-League route and sign with the Ignite like Scoot Henderson, Jonathan Kuminga, or Jalen Green.
Others speculate he could take his talents overseas, while some believe he’s narrowing down his choices to Duke, Ohio State, and Oregon.
Whatever the case, the young combo guard has been a quick riser in most NBA Draft boards over the past couple of months.
His elite on-ball defense and playmaking skills, topped with his physical traits and athleticism, have officially made him a top-10 prospect in the 2024 NBA Draft class, at least for the time being.
LeBron has made it clear that he intends to team up with him once he makes it to the league, so you better believe teams will go to war to try and land him once his time finally comes.NEXT: Pelicans Veteran Comments On An Eventful Season
