LeBron James has become the NBA’s first active player to earn $1 billion in career earnings.

The Los Angeles Laker is also the first athlete in a United States team sport to join Tiger Woods, Floyd Mayweather, Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Roger Federer in the ten-figure club. While the future Hall of Famer has earned $330 million in total playing salary, he’s earned $700 million from endorsements, merchandise, licensing, and his media business. Currently, LeBron’s deals with AT&T, Beats, Blaze Pizza, GMC, Nike, PepsiCo, Rimowa, and Walmart earn the four-time NBA champion $100 million per year. LeBron is expected to be joined by other NBA peers sooner than later. Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry are both expected to earn $1 billion in their playing careers as they’ve already generated $580 million and $430 million respectively.

Sportico’s Kurt Badenhausen offered more perspective on the milestone by comparing LeBron’s earnings to Michael Jordan’s and projecting more NBA players will earn $1 billion in the upcoming years.

“Jordan fell just short of $1B on an inflation-adjusted basis while active. But thanks to massive $$ in retirement w/Nike’s Jordan Brand soaring, MJ career earnings now ~$2B (not adjusted for inflation),” he tweeted. “Soaring NBA salaries will create a new crop of players earning $1B. Luka Doncic is looking at $700+ million in salary alone by the time he is 36 if remains star & salary cap keeps going. Of course, there is a big difference b/n earnings and net worth. MJ is a billionaire–LeBron is not. Nike helped MJ get there, but equally important is NBA team values skyrocketing since he took control of Hornets in 2010.”
