LeBron James is the only active billionaire NBA player in history. Not even Michael Jordan has achieved this feat. The Bulls legend became a billionaire after he retired from the game while owning the Charlotte Hornets. Of the past and the present, Jordan is the richest. But as an active player, there is only LeBron James. Clearly, the kid from Akron, Ohio, has had a great business mind too. With his stakes in Blaze Pizza, Liverpool Soccer Club, and so on, King James has made pretty good investments that made him a billionaire as an active player.

Moreover, LeBron James has a lucrative contract with Nike and partnerships with Sony PlayStation. With Nike and PlayStation, he has his own signature products. King James has a lifelong contract with Nike worth over a billion dollars. Even for a billionaire of LeBron’s stature, 700 million euros for a single year is a big deal. That’s what the Saudi Arabian Al-Hilal Soccer club is currently offering the French Superstar Kylian Mbappe. Recently, his club Paris Saint-Germain announced that they would trade Mbappe.

Moreover, Kylian Mbappe would become the highest transfer in sports history. Al-Hilal’s offer includes a mammoth $332 million for PSG as a transfer fee and $776 million for Mbappe as a one-year deal. That’s why the rich NBA players are displaying their amazement at the offer. But it looks like Kylian Mbappe has no intention of ending his European soccer club career at 24. However, it does not stop the legends of the NBA like Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard, and LeBron James from expressing a desire to get similar offers. Recently, the Milwaukee Bucks star joked about it, saying, “Al-Hilal, you can take me instead of Kylian. We look the same.”

After the Greek Freak’s hilarious post, LeBron James used a Forrest Gump meme to show that he would run like Forrest to Saudi Arabia to get such a one-year contract. King James mentioned that he is waiting for Rich Paul and Mav Carter to tell him that he got a similar offer from Saudi Arabia. Even after ruling NBA for two decades, nobody offered LeBron James such a lucrative offer for a year. But NBA is gradually getting popular in the Middle East. Then who knows what kind of offer will come LeBron’s way in the future.

Will Kylian Mbappe Follow The Footsteps Of CR7 & Benzema?

After a failed venture securing the trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe, PSG let Messi move to Inter Miami. Now they are willing to trade Kylian Mbappe. However, giving two World Cup Winners up won’t be easy for the PSG club. But the question remains what Mbappe would do now? Many soccer legends have gone to Saudi Arabia for the big bucks.

Cristiano Ronaldo ended his European Club journey with Juventus. He made the world record transfer to Al-Nassr. Later, following the footsteps of CR7, another Real Madrid legend Karim Benzema ended his European Club journey to move to Saudi Arabia. Mbappe has been a fan of the all-time leading international goal scorer since he was a kid. Will he follow in his idol’s footsteps to move to Saudi Arabia for a year? It will become the most expensive contract ever in sports.
