Los Angeles Lakers leader LeBron James announced on his social media accounts the release of a new documental movie.

It will tell the story of the beginning partnership between Lebron and Nike.

“It’s going to be an amazing documentary,” LeBron wrote.

It turns out that before LeBron signed with Nike, he was given a much better offer from Reebok. Reebok’s offer was worth about $115 million over 10 years with a $10 million signing bonus.

LeBron James was growing and imagining himself as part of Nike, although their offer was closer to $70 million. James’ agent called Nike and told them that LeBron preferred them and that they would agree to the deal if the offer was slightly improved.

A negotiated seven-year contract with $77 million guaranteed and a $10 million signing bonus brought the total deal to $87 million.
