LeBron James is undoubtedly the embodiment of the classic ‘American dream’ story. Like many legends of American sports, he grew up under extremely difficult conditions as a half-orphan raised by a very young mother in the middle-sized city of Akron, Ohio. He was paradoxically introduced into the world of basketball by the local American football coach, who was temporarily taking care of LeBron when his mother was looking for steady job. From that moment, probably one of the most beautiful basketball biographies in history began, because even already in the fifth grade of primary school, more and more mouth talked promising rumors about an exceptionally talented kid from Akron. It resulted in the fact that LeBron was accompanied by media attention practically from an early age and already in high school he was naturally marked with nickname “The Chosen One” because his talent could be compared only with his great idol – Michael Jordan. Our hero’s career from that moment went on a very planned schedule – after his outstanding achievements in St. Vincent St. Mary high school, LeBron skipped the college stage and at the age of 19 was ready to take on the best in the NBA.
After several league titles, league MVP awards and countless other trophies, LBJ has fully lived up to its hopes. He is not only mentioned as one of the greatest basketball players in history, but he has also become undoubtedly a pop culture icon, an idol of millions and a role model for young adepts of this most beautiful sports game. King James, because this is his latest nickname as a Los Angeles Lakers player, is also a fulfilled husband and father, as well as an exceptionally efficient businessman who skillfully strengthens the power of his own name-brand. This is only confirmed by the fact that, according to all estimates, his fortune at the end of 2021 will exceed the dazzling amount of one billion dollars, which undoubtedly allows him for self-realization not only on the basketball court. For many people at this level of wealth, the problem is no longer just accumulating money, but rather ensuring that the wealth already accumulated does not depreciate. One of the ways to do this is broadly understood investing in valuable goods such as real estate, cars, precious stones or clone watches, which we will now take a closer look at.
LeBron, as you know, was doomed to success from an early age and therefore very early on, big money began to go hand in hand with him. At the age of 18, he had a Hummer H2, which aroused considerable controversy. He was then facing a potential suspension from high school for allegedly violating sports sponsorship laws. Ultimately, however, the car turned out to be a gift from his mother – Gloria , who financed it with a loan secured for her son’s future successes (and earnings), which came very quickly. After joining the NBA, many brands from the luxury segment began to take an interest in the young star, and more and more exclusive products were branded with his name. In 2011, as a Miami Heat player, LeBron joined fake Audemars Piguet’s official ambassadors. Two years later it resulted in the gray leather strap copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore model dedicated to the athlete, a limited to 600 pieces timepiece combining titanium and rose gold.
Audemars Piguet replica watches, possibly driven on an endorsement contract, marked James’ wrist-game for most of his career. Naturally, due to his powerful wrists, he prefers the large (45mm) perfect fake watches from the Royal Oak Offshore line. However, these were not only his signature models, as LBJ always emphasized that he was fascinated by watchmaking as a general harmony of innovative design and advanced technology. An example of this is the quality copy Audemars Piguet Offshore Chronograph Tourbillon, which is an 18-carat gold model limited to only 50 pieces.
