“I want a team in Vegas”
And four-time MVP James, who is the first active NBA player to become a billionaire, hopes to have a role in any Vegas outfit.
“I want to own a team,” he told The Shop in an episode set to air on Friday. “I want to buy a team, for sure.
“I would much rather own a team before I talk. I want a team in Vegas.”
The 37-year-old shared the clip with the caption: “Speaking it into existence!”
James would be following in the footsteps of fellow great Michael Jordan, who runs the Charlotte Hornets.
