At age 37, LeBron James remains to be one among the NBA’s best players.
However the Los Angeles Lakers superstar has already began eager about his post-playing days, and he has some big aspirations for them.
In a teaser clip of an upcoming recent episode of Uninterrupted’s “The Shop,” James revealed he desires to own an NBA franchise in Las Vegas.
“I would like to purchase a team, obviously,” James said.
“I would like a team in Vegas. Yeah, I would like the team in Vegas.”
James, who recently reached billionaire status, is already a part-owner of the Boston Red Sox and Liverpool FC. The three-time champion has long said he desires to own an NBA team, and now it appears he’s zeroed in on a possible expansion franchise in Sin City.
Back in February, The Ringer’s Bill Simmons shared he had “intel” regarding NBA expansion and said he believed Seattle and Las Vegas would each get teams in some unspecified time in the future. Simmons also predicted James can be a part of the ownership group in Vegas.

While commissioner Adam Silver recently denied any current expansion talks, he conceded Vegas would “little doubt” be on the list of potential sites once they do start discussing it.
And Silver now knows of no less than one interested buyer.
