INDIANAPOLIS -- LeBron James doesn't think it's possible to be paid his actual value under the current...

Don't hate a champion
You didn't even read the article lol
Quit licking his brown eye.
Edit: don't hate a champion? Does this mean I should hate Kobe five times more than I do LeBron?

I read the article and yes he is worth more
financially sacrificing to do the right thing.... what a martyr.
He does have a point. Think about how many tickets the Cavs sold while he was there. He was pretty much the only reason to watch that team, and I don't remember the exact numbers, but I believe the value of the franchise dropped almost $100M once he left (something like $450M to $350M). I'd need more numbers on annual revenue streams and profitability to really say one way or another, but I'd be willing to bet he generates a whole hell of a lot more revenue for his team than he actually gets in salary.
What if he ends up going back to Cleveland?
Maybe he should save up some of that money and purchase a portion of whatever team he plays for and then he can have a nice big cut of revenue.
That's just the way it works. He isn't taking the risk of owning the operation, so not getting that level of reward either.
But I see his point... all I know is that I wouldn't be pouting if I was pulling in 40 mil a year in endorsements + whatever he makes from playing ball.
He was never classy to begin with, as the thread title implies
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
Class is overrated in sports
I don't see him whining. Nothing he states isn't true. He took less pay to win a title. How many of the best in the game have done that?
More than you think
Chipper is one off the top of my head, though he didn't win a title after giving up some pay.
