LEBRON JAMES

Computer giant Microsoft announced Friday that they were dumping basketball star LeBron James as a company spokesman. James had appeared in tv commercials for the company when the Windows Vista operating system was launched. Microsoft had also set up a Lebronjames.com website which is now inactive. The company had not used James in any recent advertising.

James is the second big time athlete to lose a major endorsement deal recently. Golfer Tiger Woods was dropped by General Motors after having an endorsement contract with Buick for nine years.
