Is 50 Million from Europe ok King James?

I might consider it to, if a European based firm wanted me to come do a "European Funnies" for $50 Million for one year...yeah I'd at least consider it. Same thing a source close to Lebron James said about James playing professional basketball in Europe.

James' contract with the Cavs expires following the 2009-10 season. Given the limited salary cap space most any NBA team has to work with, paying $50 million a year for one player -- even James -- is unlikely.

Not in Europe, not with the Euro, and not with less taxes taken out. Previously the highest paid player for one year of basketball was Michael Jordan (remember him), who grossed a $40M meal ticket from the Chicago Bulls.

The website reports the Russian team CSKA Moscow and the Greek team Oympiakos have already contacted James, but no contractual talks have transpired.

Come talk to us "European Funnies" in the more specifc... German Funnies...(not funny)
