Maverick Carter Sued Over LeBron Pendant

Remember that silly LBJ pendant story from this summer? Yeah, it’s not going away. TMZ reports: “[Maverick] Carter maintains the pendant was stolen from him roughly 3 years ago … and he had no idea where it went until he saw that Robinson was trying to sell it on eBay. But in the suit, filed in Ohio, [VaNeisha] Robinson claims Carter concocted a diabolical plan to lure her into his home, insisting that LeBron would be present to make a deal — instead, she claims, a horde of 8 or 9 people held her in the house against her will and forced her to give up the bling. For the record — Robinson claims LeBron was never at the house. Now, Robinson wants the pendant back and more than $50k in damages from Carter — claiming she was robbed, falsely imprisoned and suffered some serious mental anguish.  Carter has already filed a response — denying all allegations.”

    Carter should play that Luda song when he walks into the courtroom; You’s A H00000000000000000*.

    It’s funny how these people think they’re like the Godfather just because they’re friends with Bron

    Doesn’t this woman realize that it is a privilege to be in such esteemed company? You are talking about one of the brightest young minds in the business community.

  • hoodsnake

    My thing is why would your friend wear stuff with your name or likeness on it? Sounds a bit queer

  • slamfan4life

    why didnt they just pay her if they wanted it so bad……….50k is nothing for Mr.MiamiThrice

  • T-Money

    Let’s be real here, take a hard look at that pendant. Do you believe she got it for $5 at a garage sale? Cmon now.

  • johnny c

    if it was carter’s pendant in the first place and it got stolen, he was just getting back his stolen property. not sure if i see anything wrong with this, its easier than taking her to court.

    i think some of us are forgetting how much a tool this maverick carter is.

    dude just totally ruined a great story for this woman, for something worth 10k? he probably makes that much in a month or so doing nothing but being lbj’s friend.
    its a freaking pendant. ask lebron to buy you another one.


    What a horses behind Maverick Carter is. He should have nipped this thing in the bud a long time ago, but instead, he continues to bring negativity to “Team LeBron.”

    I see a day, a few years from now, when Lebron sues Maverick for embezzling and mismanaging his money. Maverick seems like that kind of guy – he’s got that sense of entitlement, like he thinks HE’S the reason for the fame and money. Maverick’s decisions this year have been sh*t — he’s p*ssing on his cash cow.

  • Hammer

    This carter dude is shady. I’m fed up w/him already. Get rid of him

    Every king needs a field general.
    Introducing, Maverick Carter.

  • ai come back

    yea but not a dumass field general……….

  • The Philosopher

    He did his job.
    He retrieved the jewelry booty for… THE KING.

  • http://www.michaelcho.com M Cho

    He gets back a pendant worth a few grand… yet ruins Lebron’s brand image over the summer with his “Decision” idea. That’s called winning a battle but losing the war. Not the kind of general anyone would want. Worse, when pressed about the decision, Maverick said he’d take “a little bit of the blame” for it. A real general takes full responsibility for his failures.

  • The Philosopher

    Hello, M Cho. Regards.
    The King’s brand image is a bit tarnished to some. Not to all.
    Theoretically, if his image was ruined beyond repair, or ruined at all, then why has not The King forfeited any of his corporate endorsements?
    Anyways, at the conclusion of all of this, it is The King’s decision what goes down. Not Maverick Carter.
    That can explain why he did not take all of the blame. I can see Carter asking The King if it was a good idea.
    I can see The King saying yes.
    The rest would be History.

    My regards to you too, Philosopher. Of course Lebron had a say in “the Decision” — that’s beyond debate. A client always has final say. What’s wrong in the situation is that Maverick didn’t “take a bullet” for his client when asked about his involvement. A good PR guy/Manager/Agent is supposed to shield his client from bad press. That’s what Maverick failed to do, and that’s what demonstrated to me that he’s more self-centered than client-centered. Lebron has made this guy what he is: without Lebron he’s nothing, yet he still failed to at sacrifice a little for his cash cow of a client. The important thing to note here is how much of “Lebron Inc” is the responsibility of Lebron and how much is the responsibility of Mr. Carter. Whatever popularity Lebron generates or forfeits from his performance on the court is Lebron’s responsibility. Maverick doesn’t score those points or make those dunks, after all. But whatever popularity Lebron generates or forfeits from business decisions — that’s Maverick’s responsibilty, whether Lebron signs off on it or not. And we can all agree that “the Decision” was a terrible business and PR move. Now, Lebron’s still gonna survive it and whatever popularity he lost, he’s probably gonna get back eventually because of he’s a mfing monster on the court and he’s gonna always be popular as long as he’s an awesome player. But that’s on Lebron — Maverick doesn’t have anything to do with that. All Maverick is supposed to do is take care of all the business that happens outside of the court. And so far this year, he’s messing that up.

    Touche, sir.

    50K that’s nothing to those guys.

  • T-Money

    From a business perspective, I don’t see how Maverick is hurting LeBron at all. He dropped Goodwin years ago. He topped the NBA endorsement list by FAR this year. At the very least, for the ones who are dead set on not giving any credit to Maverick’s biz acumen, he’s not messing sh-t up. The Decision was a PR disaster but it didn’t cost LeBron a single dollar. He’s still everywhere, the camera still follows him, TV crews go on the road for him, he’s still endorsing a million products. And to the ones who think the effects will be felt much later, no one outside of Cleveland will give a eff about the TV by the all-star break.

    Interesting points.
    @M Cho:
    We have to remember also that there is the childhood factor with those two.
    When one has grown up under certain circumstances, sometimes alliances are formed from childhood, and those alliances remain intact for a lifetime. There is a realness to it all. Whether for the benefit of said subject, or the detriment. In many cases, it is the latter.
    The King is loyal.
    And, one can imagine that Carter and The King had already congregated before said interview with Ms. O’Brien. There has not been any reports to my knowledge suggesting that The King was ambushed on live T.V., or such quagmires.

    I think when the waters calm, and the winds settle, we may chalk it up to them being two young, uneducated kids who ended up with the world at their feet.
    The spotlight got hot momentarily for them. They are still very young in life, you know?
    But, The King did change the entire landscape forever with that move.
    Carter does not look that bad.
    they are pioneers, in a way.
