24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
With nothing left to prove as a basketball player, LeBron James has begun mentioning life after his playing career and he reveals that he could be following in the steps of Michael Jordan, by becoming an owner of an NBA team.
James helped launch the Uninterrupted “Open Run” podcast this morning and had some interesting things to say. The three-time NBA Champion also said he’d hire the best GM and team president if he were to achieve his goal. Via Northeast Ohio Media Group:
“I feel like my brain as far as the game of basketball is unique and I would love to continue to give my knowledge to the game,” James said. “And I would love to be a part of a franchise, if not at the top. My dream is to actually own a team and I don’t need to have fully hands on. If I’m fortunate enough to own a team, then I’m going to hire the best GM and president that I can.
“But I have a feel like I have 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 IQ side of things, because talent only goes so far.”
