LeBron pays the price to keep his body in elite condition.
In his 15th NBA season, LeBron James shows no signs of slowing down. The 33-year old, 4X NBA MVP is currently averaging 27.5 points and career bests in assists and rebounds per game, with 9.1 and 8.6, respectively.
It should come as no surprise that LeBron follows a strict workout routine and diet, but it was recently revealed just how much he invests in his body annually, and the number is staggering.
According to Alex Kennedy of USA Today Sports, LeBron's longtime friend and business partner Maverick Carter has said that the Cavs' All-Star forward spends roughly $1.5 million per year on his body, including cryotherapy, hyperbaric chambers and Normatec leg boots, as well as personal chefs, masseuses, trainers etc. In his Akron home, James has a setup that rivals those of professional teams, including a complete workout gym, hot and cold tubs and a hyperbaric chamber, according to Real GM.
The Cavaliers, 44-29, are still holding onto third place in the Eastern Conference. With nine games remaining in the regular season, LeBron and co. are 1.5 games up on the fourth place Philadelphia 76ers and fifth place Indiana Pacers.
