LeBron Ben Simmons Nike

Simmons Nike deal will be the first shoe to drop (no pun intended) in the many advantages of signing to LBJ for Ben.

Reports have Nike going as high as $100 million for Simmons, which would surpass LeBron’s first $90 million Nike deal.

So that’s basically what they’re saying, he’s going to get a $100 million deal. I would understand that.” – Sonny Vacarro

This may seem like a lot for an unproven kid that couldn’t take his LSU team to the NCAA tournament in his only year of American ball but we’ve all seen whether on the court or off, what LeBron says goes.

At this point, JR Smith is just trolling everyone. Now he is just posing for random pictures pretending to untie people’s shoes?

Imagine Dwyane Wade posing with a side chick and what Gabby would think.

I think Mike Woodson may try to choke JR before the season is over since untying shoes become his signature move.
