Our Complete Review of Is LeBron James Really A Billionaire?

You may have seen an article on the Forbes website yesterday in which LeBron James was "officially" anointed as a billionaire.

Hundreds of highly respected news channels, from ESPN to the Wall Street Journal, have been making the claim within 24 hours of the article's publication.

In the same 24 hours, we received about a hundred emails and DMs here at Celebrity Net Worth calling us to update our information OR explaining why we thought the Forbes article was wrong. So let's study it ...

In our view (and we have been following LeBron James' net worth for longer than any existing publication), LeBron James is not currently a billionaire.

We are currently targeting LeBron's net worth of $ 600 million - a very decent figure, but still a few hundred million lower than the coveted three-point athletic club.

According to our ranking of the richest athletes in the world, depending on who you think qualifies as an "athlete", there are four billionaire athletes on the planet:

In the above list, $ 600 million remained for LeBron James in sixth place, just behind Tiger Woods and Dwayne The Rock Johnson, who both play for nearly $ 800 million.

Let me show you by explaining that we are not just trying to hate here. I want to write an article today that LeBron James officially declares a billionaire.
