Warren Buffett Is Impressed With LeBron James’ Financial Savvy
According to Forbes, Warren Buffett is worth a whopping $46 billion, and is the 20th most powerful person in the United States. There are very few people who can make the salary of a star athlete look small, and he is clearly one of them.
On top of being the best basketball player in the world, LeBron James has a solid amount of off-the-court activities that raise his value. With so many professional athletes going broke shortly after they retire, or even during their playing days, it’s refreshing to see an athlete who is so good at off-the-court activities.
James has deals with Coca-Cola, State Farm, Samsung, Nike, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Baskin Robbins. And as if that all isn’t enough, he also holds a minority ownership in Liverpool Football Club.
And somewhere in between all this, he finds time to play some basketball.
Many people are impressed by LeBron James on the court, but you can now add Warren Buffett to those who are impressed with the NBA champion’s financial savvy.
Via the Miami Herald:
“You have to get to know him,” Buffett said. “LeBron’s not initially really talkative. He’s savvy. He’s smart about financial matters. It’s amazing to me the maturity he exhibits. I know that if I had been famous at that age, I would have had trouble keeping my feet on the ground.”
