LeBron James’ One Goal In Life — Be Rich

A friend sent me a link to an article about the new house being built for NBA star LeBron James. Of course the dimensions and content of the house are absurd but the thing that really got me was this quote:

The Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star and Akron native, whose stated goal is to be the world’s first billionaire athlete[…]

Wow, what a courageous goal! I don’t really follow mainstream sports much these days but of course I’ve heard of this guy and the vehicle he was driving in high school. I’ve also heard he’s quite the basketball player. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make money. I want to make more money that I am right now but to publicly state that as one of your primary if not only goal? What about helping out some kids in your home town or the country? Maybe generically making the world a better place? I did do a search on LeBron James charity and found some mention of a bike charity so maybe he does do some worthwhile things. If so then maybe he can mention that as one of his goals and not just to be super rich and self centered.
