    Lebron feels he's underpaid

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/89...ue-current-cba


    Just when he hadn't done anything stupid for awhile.....

    I'll reserve my opinion on this one for now, just curious to see the thoughts on this

    Whether you agree or not, I think his PR people would call it stupid.

    Chose the sport imo. But his sponsorship are probably where he gets most of his income.

    He's not saying anything that isn't true.

    And he was asked the question, and answered. Not like he was itching to bring it up.

    Many feel the CBA is a bit flawed, and I've seen some nice discussion about that today because of this...



    He does make 10 million less than Kobe this year...which is pretty cool. I mean, not for him...but it's cool. He's probably worth $10 million more than Kobe at this point.

    Depends on the context of what precipitated that thought. Was he asked something or did it just come out the blue? Either way, its not a big deal to me.

    Not even remotely opinion, there have been several articles on the financial impact James has had on the NBA and his teams. Hes basically one of the few who carries the league.

    Oh.

    And worst poll ever. Not even funny even if it's from a blatant troll.

    How is this anything negative? Dude said he'll gladly take pay cuts for the good of the team. pretty sure the OP is just banking on people to come in and cry about this without actually reading anything.

    If anything it's more of a shot on the CBA.

    this. LoL, I don't get why athletes continue to make stupid statements in public like this. Is he underpaid? Yeah, of course he is. He brings in a lot more revenue to the Heat franchise and and the NBA than his salary covers by a long shot. But when you're making $16million a year plus millions more in endorsements, you just gotta shut up and count your blessings. Most people don't see $16million in salary in their entire lives, and if he were 6" shorter, he probably wouldn't either.

    Yeah, you're underpaid, but saying stuff like this makes you look like a douche.

    He's sold and marketed to make money chronz, he's a product and a brand name. Jordans (the shoes) sell alot, make themselves and others money, but their not hardly the most quality shoes. His monetary value to the league isn't all attributable to him, whether he's O robertson and Wilt in one or not ( he;s not, I know some of ytou are considering it), without NBA backing, PR marketing, Nike commercials, etc, he wouldn't make as much money for thet laegue and therefore not be worth as much to them
