LeBron James Speaks on Possibly Owning an NBA Team in the Future

I expect this to happen sooner than later, as LeBron James is the standard for the way athletes should conduct their business.

King James owns part of a Premier League team, Klutch Sports—a production company for television and film— and, most importantly, he’s an amazing philanthropist.

When James' playing days are over, he’ll have the resources to do a lot of wonderful things, including owning an NBA franchise of his own someday.

While appearing on the Open Run podcast, LeBron discussed one day being an owner.

“I feel like my brain, as far as the game of basketball, is unique,” James said, appearing on a guest on the “Open Run” podcast, a show that recently partnered with the multimedia platform “Uninterrupted,” a company which James is a stakeholder in.

“I would love to continue to give my knowledge to the game. I would love to be a part of a franchise – if not at the top … My dream is to actually own a team. I don’t need to (be) fully hands on. If I’m fortunate enough to own a team, then I’ll going to hire the best GM and president that I can. But I feel like I got a good eye for not only talent, because we all see a lot of talent, but the things that make the talent. The chemistry, what type of guy he is, his work ethic, his passion, the basketball I.Q. side of things. Because talent only goes so far.”

When he says it, it usually happens, especially since he’s already aware of the pieces he’ll need to put in place around himself. LeBron the GM or coach probably won’t happen, but I can see him being an NBA owner by 2030 at the latest.
