When it came to a recent survey, only two people were seen as more overpaid than LeBron James ... Snooki and Kim Kardashian. While James has his share of critics, do you agree he's paid more than he deserves?
Nestled within the results of a new joint lifestyle survey conducted
by Yahoo! Finance and Fitness magazine is an interesting little NBA
nugget. Asked to identify people who make way more money than they
deserve, nearly a quarter of survey respondents picked LeBron James.
In addition to questions about monthly finances, planned uses for tax
refunds, spending preferences and how money impacts relationships,
2,000 Americans were asked, "Who do you think makes way more money than
she/he deserves to?" The most popular choice was mom-and-wife-to-be
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi of "Jersey Shore" fame, picked by 51 percent of
those surveyed. She was followed closely by Kim Kardashian (45
percent), with whom we are all very familiar.
There's a big gap after the two reality stars — the third-most
popular answer didn't get even a quarter of respondents' votes — but
James is No. 3 on the list. Twenty-four percent of the 2,000 people
surveyed said the Miami Heat superstar and two-time league Most Valuable
Player gets paid more money than he deserves.
