Basketball superstar meets superstar investor

I'd guess it was a pretty big tip for the waitress!

LeBron shoots the breeze with Letterman, Buffett - NBA - Yahoo! Sports:
"A few days earlier, James had lunch in Omaha, Neb., with billionaire Warren Buffett. ...James, who signed a three-year, $60 million contract extension with the Cavaliers in July, may have been seeking some off-the-court business advice from Buffett, the self-made billionaire investor.

Last year, in an interview with The Associated Press, James said one of his primary goals was to 'be the richest man in the world.' James, who will turn 22 in December, already has endorsement deals worth an estimated $150 million.

Buffett sported a full Cavaliers uniform, complete with a jersey bearing his name, during his lunch with James....James ordered a bacon cheeseburger, french fries and an Arnold Palmer, a drink concocted of lemonade and iced tea. Bubarek said he topped off his meal with an Oreo cookie milkshake delivered by a Buffett staffer."
