NBA superstar LeBron James recently created history by officially crossing the big billionaire mark. The 37-year-old superstar is now worth $1 billion, according to Forbes. He now joins basketball legend Michael Jordan as the only NBA billionaires. This feat is so impressive that even the UFC’s top moneymakers can’t beat it.

James has gained more than $385 million in pre-tax salary from his 19-year NBA career and has become NBA’s highest-paid active player. Although the American has made good money in court, most of his earnings came off court. According to Forbes, he acquired at least $900 million in income from endorsements and other savvy business moves.
