Was Kanye West really right about something?
When West said Nike "gave LeBron a billy (billion) not to run away" on a song called "Facts", was it actually a fact?
Sure sounds like it, according to LeBron James' business manager, Maverick Carter.

LeBron signed a liftetime contract with Nike in December, and while the terms haven't been released, Carter confirmed it was a jaw-dropper in an interview with GQ.
How much was the deal for? I can't say. Come on, Mav! Can you ballpark it? What are people saying? Kanye said a billion. So a billion. [Maverick smiles and points one finger skyward.] Holy (expletive). Yeah. It's a fantastic deal. Nike feels great about the deal. That's the most important thing. As great as I feel, as great as LeBron feels -- Nike feels fantastic about it. It's the largest deal in the history of the company. Their hope is he makes even more. And our hope is that, too, obviously.
More than $1 billion? That's even crazier. And so is this: Carter's comments suggest LeBron could've gotten even more.
