During an episode of “The Shop,” a series on HBO, the 37-year-old superstar revealed that he wanted to buy a Silver Tour team and have it based in Las Vegas.
At the moment, the NBA has 30 organizations and does not appear to have any short or medium term plans for expansion. Last week, commissioner Adam Silver denied the rumor that his league considered the cities of Las Vegas and Seattle as possible candidates to establish concessions there, starting in 2024.
Going back to James, this isn't the first time the athlete has spoken publicly about his desire to own an NBA team one day. Recently, the Los Angeles Lakers player became the first active player on the league to have an estimated net worth of $1 billion.
