There's a new billionaire in town, and he goes by the name, "King James."
According to Forbes, LeBron James is the first active NBA player to become a billionaire. This milestone makes the 37-year-old player's nickname, King James, all the more fitting.
The Los Angeles Lakers star is also only one of two basketball players to reach $1 billion in net worth. The Chicago Bulls NBA legend, Michael Jordan, has also been reported by Forbes to have achieved the same milestone by in 2014.
James responded to the news in an instagram post:
Congrats to LeBron James on making history!
