It must feel pretty good to be LeBron James.

The 6ft 8in Miami Heat star has four MVP titles under his belt, an Olympic gold medal, two NBA championships and is widely regarded as one of the best sportsmen on the planet.

And, it would seem, he has an incredible amount of money to go along with those triumphs.

Forbes have released a list of the power forward's endorsements and their subsequent values to him and believe me, James has far more to smile about than his on-court achievements alone.

Forbes has the 29-year-old as earning $42million in endorsements alone each year, unsurprisingly placing him at the top of the list for his sport.

According to the report such a figure would be enough for James to single-handedly buy all of the 5.8million people living in the Miami metro area a large coffee and four donuts from Dunkin’ donuts or alternatively 40,000 basketballs signed by himself, which tend to go for around $1,050 a pop from Spalding, without even touching his monumental salary.
