● Reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook, one of the league's global superstars, inked a 10-year extension with Nike's Jordan Brand that will be the most lucrative total endorsement deal for a Jordan athlete to date. Westbrook has partnered up with major brands such as Nike/Air Jordan, Mountain Dew, True Religion clothing company, Six Star Pro Nutrition, Samsung, Barneys New York, and Westbrook Frames.
His foundation, Russell Westbrook’s Why Not? Foundation was founded back in 2012 to inspire the lives of children, empower them to ask “Why Not?” and teach them to never give up. Last month, Westbrook teamed with the United Way of Greater Los Angeles to give out a brand new 2017 Kia Sorento SXL equipped with car’s registration and auto car insurance for the next year to a family.
● LeBron James is 33 years old now, and he entered the NBA league back in 2003 with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he had been playing at the Quicken Loans Arena for almost 11 years now. Sports Illustrated put him on the cover the prior year as a high school junior with the claimed tagline: “The Chosen One.” Nike inked him to a seven-year, $90 million deal while he was still in high school. James has become the superstar icon in Cleveland itself, and the Cleveland Cavaliers has decided to place a new LeBron James banner outside of Quicken Loans Arena.
LeBron James has been one of the hottest names on the endorsement trail as well, locking up partnerships with Nike, Coca-Cola (Sprite), Beats By Dre, State Farm Insurance, Kia Motors, Intel, Progressive Insurance, Samsung, Verizon Wireless, McDonald's, Powerade, and Blaze Pizza.
Back in 2016, LeBron James has reportedly donated an unprecedented $41 million to put 1,100 Ohio kids through college, which is part of his partnership with the University Of Akron, in which kids enrolled in his "I Promise" program will have the opportunity to receive a fully guaranteed four-year college scholarship. Through his "I Promise" program, students who are qualified will get a scholarship that will cover their entire college degree tuition and the general service fee from the university.
He has his own production company (SpringHill Entertainment) and media company (Uninterrupted), and 2% stake in Liverpool. But James' greatest accomplishment might be his impact on Ohio children through his foundation. It announced plans three years ago to spend $41 million to send kids to college for free.
● Stephen Curry left his initial basketball endorsement Nike, and signed with Under Armour(UA) in 2013 instead. Under Armour(UA) had signed Curry to a contract extension through the year 2024, which is worth close to $4 million per year.
Stephen Curry has been one of the hottest names on the endorsement trail as well, locking up partnerships with Under Armour(UA), 2K Sports, Express, State Farm Insurance, Unilever's Degree, JP Morgan Chase, Muscle Milk, JBL Headphones, Nissan's luxury cars brand INFINITI, Vivo smartphones, Sony Pictures, Brita Water, and ZAMST. He was also featured in an Apple commercial to promote the iPhone 6s. Curry also got a major boost after soccer star Lionel Messi posted a picture to Instagram holding up an autographed Curry jersey to his 30 million followers.
● Kyrie Irving has partnered up with major brands such as Nike, PepsiCo, Foot Locker, Panini, PSD Luxury Men's Boxer Briefs, ProCamps, and Skullcandy. In December 2014, Irving had launched his Nike Kyrie 3 signature shoe collection and since then the sale of his shoes is touching new heights day by day. The launch colorway was sold out in just 3 minutes. In 2016, he got equity stakes in American company Skullcandy. This deal was a part of an endorsement deal between him and Skullcandy. This move of Kyrie looks professionally good because of Skullcandy's global headphone and earbud market expected to be worth more than $17.5 billion by 2022.
He was the cover athlete on NBA 2K18, with covers published in both his Celtics and Cavs jerseys. Irving is headed to the big screen as the star of an Uncle Drew feature film. Irving is part owner of the Uncle Drew rights, which started as a Pepsi-funded web series. Irving also recorded a song for the movie's soundtrack. The movie led to an endorsement deal for Irving with General Mills. The company put Irving and Uncle Drew on its iconic Wheaties cereal boxes.
