He makes his fortune through various channels on and off the court with the majority of his earnings coming from endorsements and his various businesses. But exactly how much does he earn from his contract with the Lakers?

In the current season, the King is earning a whopping $44.47 million dollars for providing his services to the team in purple and gold. This averages out to about $542,000 dollars per game for the 82-game regular season. This makes James the 4th highest paid player this season behind Stephen Curry, John Wall and his own teammate Russell Westbrook.

In the summer of 2022, LeBron James signed a 2yr/$97.1 million dollar contract extension with the lakers to extend his stay in Hollywood until after his 40th birthday. The deal contains a player option for the 2024/25 season which will give him the freedom to go elsewhere if he so chooses. The Lakers can now breathe a sigh of relief as both of their top players are now locked in for multiple seasons.

As LeBron James is arguably the GOAT, it is no surprise that teams still leave no stone unturned to have him on their squad. Having won 4 championships and delivering at least 1 one to every team he has been on, signing him has always been a recipe for success for every front office he has played under.

The Lakers currently sit at 13th in the west with a 10-13 record. If they are to make any real noise in this tough Western Conference, LeBron James will have to be at his usual best and be the Robin to Anthony Davis‘ Batman. It’ll be a tough grind for the lakers but as LeBron haters have learned the hard way, you never count out the king.
