Default $90 Million dollars

So, what would you do with $90 million dollars? Apparently the newest, soon to be #1 draft pick in the NBA; LeBron James, now has 90 million decisions to make.

Yesterday, the 2003-2004 NBA Draft Lottery took place and the Cleveland Cavailiers won the rights to making the number 1 pick in this years draft. The hype is all directed towards an 18 year old high school student named LeBron James. Nike, in all of its capitalist wonderment proceeded to sign James to a $90 million dollar endorsment deal. Not bad for a kid that is not legal to drink in the US, has not graduated high school (yet) and who has yet to set foot on an NBA court, never mind a practise

I'm no poliitcal activist but look for LeBron mania in your local sporting good store soon, Nike will no doubt outsource the manufacturing of LeBron shoes to a Taiwanese sweatshop where it costs $4 dollars to make a pair of shoes, ship them back to North America and sell them for $185 plus tax.

But $90 million....geez...lets hope he is not a huge disappointment

$90 million? = one huge garage and a lot of nice cars. I could have it all spent in under 24 hours on exotics. McLaren F1, Bugatti, CLK GTR, XJ220, 6.0 Diablo... just to name a few, and there goes a couple million now

ahhhhh...wishful thinking :(

Good Idea...

If I had that kinda dough, I'd design my dream house. With an unground parking structure to house 10 cars. My domestic babies, Bonne SSEi, Lincoln LS V8, Trans Am and a few German honeys to balance it out. Audi S4, Audi A8, Passat W8, BMW 740i sport, Z8, M5...hahah

And invest half of it in and coast off the interest in some high yield account.

LOL and Mr LeBron James hasn't even signed his contract with the Cavs yet....hahahah bling bling still to come

I see I managed to fit in there somewhere

I would buy a horse farm, and raise, train, and race horses. i would have my Bonnevilles (a older, convertbile, and a 91 or so, my 95, and a 2000+ and a GXP haha one for almost each day, and one for every purpose)
And then I would buy a mansion and sit in the window and watch Boo with his telescope trying to look in the window but he'* too far away on his island :P

I would buy a Quad-Xeon rack server, and have the most powerful desktop PC in the world. Then I would buy a T3 line in to my house, maybe a couple. I would have a car for every day of the week. Ferarri F40, GXP, Road Runner 426, GNX, M5, First Vette ever made, and a NASCAR Stock Car. I would invest about half of it in to something that is doing good, then the rest would be for my dream house, and extra money to do whatever I want with.

I WOULD BUY A 90 MILLION DOLLAR PROSTITUTE!!! j/k. Actually I would retire at age 16 buy me a freakin castle. Buy me some nice rides(i.e a le mans race car, jhon force'* stang, 63' cobra daytona<----6 mill. right there , a gt40 race car....make it 2 and i would drive one. Then I would build myself a drag strip, and a supercross track so I could race my motorcycles. Plus you gotta have some rally cars for everyone. Oh yeah and I would probably keep my bonneville and buy another gxp bonneville and soup that car up. Can't forget to buy a fox body mustang and make it run 6'* in the quarter and a 87' chevy longbed that is lifted and has some huge tires and hit the bogs. Fun tmes!!!
