The Value of LeBron James just released an infographic to show how, in their opinion (and backed by some pretty good statistics) that LeBron James is the most underpaid athlete. Now, to truly say he is the MOST underpaid, we would need to see similar analysis for athletes in other sports, but the numbers here do paint a pretty good picture.

    This would be good ONLY if they accounted for Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh who also brought a lot to Miami in 2011. NBA is a team sport and this accounts for only one player.

    Fair point – if this was a scientific experiment, they don’t really have a control group because more factors changed than just LeBron switching teams.

    Dwayne Wade WAS in Miami before Lebron, apparently Jeff doesn’t understand that. Not since Bosh was in high school has anyone ever gone to a game just to see him, not at Georgia Tech, not in Toronto & darn sure not in Miami.

    As far as other factors for both teams other than Lebron, did Cleveland ticket prices and attendance dip because Mo Williams and Danny Ferry left too? Nope. If you are going to comment on things, have a half way intelligent argument
