Reports reveal that Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is on track to become a billionaire by the end of 2021. According to Fansided:

His ownership in companies like Fenway Sports Group, SpringHill Entertainment, and the Blaze Pizza franchise also brings LeBron James money off the court. The Space Jam: A New Legacy film that is slated for release July 16th will reportedly put him over the billionaire edge.

James will be joining a small and exclusive club of active athletes. Forbes also reports:

LeBron James is the NBA’s top-earning player for the seventh straight year, including off-court income (2016-17 was the only season of his career James had the highest playing salary). He’s expected to earn $95.4 million, including an estimated $64 million from endorsements, memorabilia and media. It is a record haul for an NBA player and the highest ever in American team sports. The historic year will push his career earnings to $1 billion, including $700 million off the court. He joins Tiger Woods, Floyd Mayweather, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in reaching the three-comma club while still an active athlete.
