Maverick Carter Involved in Shady LeBron Pendant Story

WEWS brings us what was once a feel-good story, but has now turned into a weird and a potential legal headache for Team LeBron: “Just a few days ago, Vaneisha Robinson believed her dreams were about to come true. Robinson paid $5 for a pendant in the shape of LeBron James’ number 23 jersey at a yard sale four years ago. Robinson thought it was costume jewelry until she had it appraised and certified by International Gemological Institute, which said the diamond-studded, gold jewelry was real and valued at nearly $10,000 … On Wednesday, Robinson said she got a phone call that turned her dream into a nightmare. Robinson said it was Katherine L. Powers, the mother of Maverick O. Carter. Carter is the CEO of LeBron James’ marketing company, LRMR. ‘[Powers] said that LeBron James was at her house and they wanted me to come over there. They were going to make me an offer that I couldn’t refuse,’ Robinson said. It turned out the one-of-a-kind pendant belongs to Carter, who claims it was stolen. Robinson said she and her mother went to the Wadsworth house Carter shares with his mother, believing James was going to buy the pendant and give it back to Carter. ‘When I got there, LeBron James was not there. It was about eight or nine other people there,’ Robinson said. ‘They pretty much accused me, they threatened me and they used their authority to they (sic) best ability to get the pendant in their possession.”‘

    It’s not money that is the root of all evil.
    It’s the lack of it.

    The quicker Bron can get rid of some of these clowns, the better he will be.

  • cp3fan

    His boys as his advisors have got to go. He needs professionals.

    I’m sure there is far more to this story than what’s being reported. But, you guys are right, the sooner LeBron separates himself from the clowns the better. I realize Maverick is his best friend, but he should keep him out of the advisor role.

  • T-Money

    Maverick Carter per se doesn’t hurt him. Apparently, he’s the only one in the crew that can give him real talk without fear or being cut off or something. If anything, he’s a buffer between Bron and all the predatory execs and ad men. It’s the other guys. They serve no purpose at all. He should cut the freebies. Why does Rich Paul need to run with NBA players at Bron’s camp? Why does Randy Sims need to be on the team plane and the locker room before the games?

    Weel, I hope Riley puts the breaks on that ish with the quickness.

  • http://aspov.blogspot.com Cheryl

    Well, I hope Riley puts the breaks on that ish with the quickness. He demands professionalism and discipline, and I hope that hasn’t changed with the landing of James and Bosh.

    Maverick Carter still lives with his mom? Hahahahahahahahahaha. He runs LRMR and still lives with his mom. Hahahaha. Straight wanna be thug.

  • bluechip244

    Just goes to show, you can put thugs in a suit, but the thuggery will persist!!

  • Javy

    This proves that Lebron has not grown up yet!
    He keeps people like this around him. Lebron needed a good dosis of college but we already know how that went.


    It’s not the first time I’ve heard of a “thug” living with his mom. Just sayin’.

  • http://www.slamonline.com jumpman3224

    Wow. Wow. Why does the CEO of a marketing agency live with his Mom?

  • http://aspov.blogspot.com Cheryl

    Perhaps his Mom lives with him?

  • http://www.boogiewilliams.com Boing Dynasty

    like Tosha Mac

  • Brian

    Back off of Maverick living with his mom, he’s got the whole attic to himself. These guys make AI’s crew look like Skull and Bones.

  • hangtime Hec

    I just smell trouble with this guy. Btw have you seen the pendent? Jesus its ugly.

  • hoodsnake

    I know that chick punched one of those damn fools.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Word is the only reason Miami signed James was because they were willing to Paul, Sims and Carter on the team payroll just like Cleveland, while Chicago and New York balked. That’s the word on the street, at least.

  • lupe

    Trying to figure out why a man would want to wear a pendant with another man’s name or likeness or representation on it. Actually, still trying to figure out why a man would wear a pendant period.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    CO-sign Allenp. No way Pat Riley is gonna put an end to this since supposedley he pretty much gave in to all of LeBron’s demands pre-Decision. It’s a shame too. Riley has a reputation as a no-nonsense type of dude. It’d be nice to see him put a halt to all this madness. Hopefully it won’t be as bad in MIA as it was in Cleveland. Stuff like LeBron making the other player’s wives give up their parking passes so he could give them to his boys and whatnot. Hell to the no, son, that ish wasn’t gonna go down in the Chi!

    Javy, whats a ‘dosis of college’? Huh? Whatever it is u could use some too. This chick shouldnt have went to the house

  • cp3fan

    Supposedly, Maverick booted World Wise Wes from the crew. Maybe he was the one who should have gotten booted.

  • Madear

    I would like to know how in the world could the police determine that the pendant belongs to Maverick Carter? If they did not produce a police report or have one on file in their data bank they need to give Miss Robinson her pendant back.

  • Madear

    Apparently, Maverick Carter’s mother is a greedy little cur. She is not happy unless she is taking from others. You could tell she never had anything coming up. No matter how much money she gets from her son and LeBron she still not going to be happy.

  • T-Money

    Gotta give it to Mav on the power move he pulled on Wes. I can’t even call him WWW after that. He’s still cool with LeBron but he’s got zero pull. Funny how everyone was talking about Bron could be influenced by Jay, by Wes, etc. In the end he listened to his Mom, Mav and that’s it./ Yeah, chill on the living with his mom thing. His mom is living with him. They’re certainly not in the house he grew up with.

    It’s not money that is the root of all evil, it’s THE LOVE OF MONEY that is the root of all evil.

  • http://null.com Reemo

    C’mon now. Y’all just want to hate on Lebron at this point. Just saw the mention of his name and decided to talk about him. Because I know you don’t really believe this chick’s story that she bought it for $5? C’mon son you know she/or someone she knows probably did steal it and now decided it was tome to try to come up off of it

  • http://roseok@comcast.net Richard R.O`Keefe

    Carter should get the same treatment that OJ Simpson got , for trying to get back his stuff……

    Carter , what a bum ………..

  • T

    What I want to know is why Carter did not report it stolen. This girl has had that pendant for 4 years. Worn it all over the place, then gets it appraised and finds out it is real. Then calls the news station. Then puts it on Ebay. Who in their right mind would do all that if they stole it? People Please. Also, Bron was in town that day and the next by his own words on Twitter. He had to know about what happened.He aint saying a word, and it is his agent!?. Something is not right here. Carter should have filed a police report, if he had that girl would have known when she sent it to be appraised. They keep up to date records on stolen jewelry and she would have never got it back if it was stolen.

  • baden

    cry me a river, chick should have sold it and got the money. DUHHHHHHHHHHH its an easy come up, if you buy something for 5 dollars thats worth 10,000, you should prlly tell it, clearly not very well educated
