LeBron James: Part Basketball Player, Part Business Man

LeBron James: Part Basketball Player, Part Business Man

Now entering the fourth quarter of his career, James decision to now move to LA and play for the Lakers has been seen as not only a basketball move but a business move as well. The smart basketball decision would have been to stay in Cleveland and continue to play in the much weaker Eastern Conference. This type of move by a professional player is unusual, but most of what LeBron James has done in the corporate world as a Black Athlete has been smart, patient, brilliantly executed, and unprecedented.
