Watch LeBron's discussion with Maverick Carter on "Kneading Dough."
In the latest episode of Uninterrupted's "Kneading Dough," Maverick Carter sat down with his close friend and business partner LeBron James to discuss a time long ago before LeBron was drafted #1 overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
As the two discuss, when LeBron was just 18 years old, still just a high schooler, Reebok had approached him with a $10 million offer... as long as he promised not to sign with Nike or Adidas. Reebok even wrote LBJ a check for $10 million on the spot during their meeting to try and prevent him from ever meeting with those two brands.
Of course, LeBron ultimately turned Reebok down and the rest is history.
Maverick and LeBron also talked about his decision to leave roughly $15 million on the table with McDonald's to pursue new ownership opportunities with Blaze Pizza.
