NBA superstar LeBron James will step into the final act of his career after signing a four-year, $154 million deal with the Los Angeles Lakers last night.

By the numbers: From a business sense, James continues to transcend his sport both on and off the court. By the time his new deal with the Lakers is complete, his career earnings from the NBA alone will top the $300 million mark — and his personal business ventures extend far beyond that.
