Athletes not only sign big contracts on the field but off the field as well. Most athletes make more money off of their endorsement deals than their actual contract salary.
We reached out to our sports radio personalities from across the country to get their opinion on James’ decision. Here’s their reactions:
LeBron James singularly orchestrated the Big Three union. And now that he has opted out of his Miami Heat contract, he’s once again the Alpha Male of pro sports. Teams are scrambling to find the proper finances and expiring contracts, flipping over cushions for salary cap coin.
LeBron James went to the bench midway through the fourth quarter, took a seat and covered his eyes with his left hand. His night was over. His reign atop the NBA, also over.
Carmelo Anthony just wants to win. And a chance to team up with the Miami Heat’s Big Three could be too good to pass up.
They say star players win championships. The Heat have three of them — and two straight titles. Kidd and the Nets are hoping to stop them in their tracks.
The Nets swept the regular-season series, and that has the Heat’s full attention as the sides get ready to lock horns in the playoffs. Miami, the league’s two-time defending champion, will host Game 1 on Tuesday night.
Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City is No. 2 on the list, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, Chicago’s Derrick Rose, Golden State’s Stephen Curry and New York’s Carmelo Anthony.
Joe Johnson scored 32 points, Shaun Livingston helped Brooklyn dominate the second overtime after LeBron James fouled out, and the Nets beat the Miami Heat 104-95 on Friday night for their fifth straight victory.

The Nets talked big in advance of last night’s home opener versus the Heat, with several players unafraid to go on the record.
Deron Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night.
“I don’t think I would lose,” Jordan said in the video, before smiling and adding, “Other than to Kobe Bryant because he steals all of my moves.”
Some members of the Miami Heat have been told the NBA is considering having them and the Brooklyn Nets wear “nickname jerseys” in at least one of their four matchups this season.
