[url]http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/soccer/us/news/2003/05/26/adu_nike_ap/?cnn=yes[/url] 1 million to this kid, 90 million to LeBron James, who knows how many millions to other well-known athletes. If Nike would stop handing out endorsement contracts they could sell their shoes for $2 a pair. [rolleyes]

I saw him play a few weeks ago at the dallas cup. He's incredible.

Adu isn't going to get $1 million after his agent & attorney get their cut. He might get 60%, or $600K for a multi-year contract. That could end up being a 5 year contract, which doesn't divide up very well. Hell, I make more than that.

You make more than that for just wearing a pair of Nikes?
