“I want to buy a team, that’s for sure. A team in Vegas,” says the American in a fragment of the episode that will be fully online on Friday. James himself still plays in the NBA for the Los Angeles Lakers, with which he became champion for the fourth time in 2020. He had previous success with the Miami Heat (2012 and 2013) and Cleveland Cavaliers (2016).
The American business magazine Forbes recently revealed that James has become a billionaire. The basketball player, who also acts and is active in the business world, has an estimated net worth of more than $1 billion, according to Forbes. As a partner of the Fenway Sports Group, James is co-owner of, among others, the American baseball club Boston Red Sox.
The NBA now consists of thirty clubs. Rumors that clubs from Seattle and Las Vegas will be added were recently contradicted by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. James could also buy an existing club and move to the desert gambling city with it. Michael Jordan, six-time NBA champion, owns Charlotte Hornets.
