lebron james (fortune mag cover)

*Because he’s so damned good, LeBron James has been one of the most hated players by fans of opposing teams, but also the most beloved for stepping out on his own and being his own man by making the decision to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He joined with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade to make a dream team for the Miami Heat. And now, he’s rejoining with old friends that also have his best interest at heart.

James has made another instrumental decision in his basketball enterprise by parting ways with his second agent, Leon Rose of Creative Artists Agency (CAA), since joining the league in 2003.

Now he’ll be represented by his longtime friend, Rich Paul.
