After the game, in which the Lakers came up just losing 119-115, James was vocal about his goal to one day own an NBA team in Vegas, and he was asked to clarify his desires in the post-match presser.
“It’s the best fan base in the world, and I would love to bring a team here at some point. That would be amazing.”
He also made it very clear that his desires were 100%, by calling out Silver.
“I know Adam is in Abu Dhabi right now, I believe, with the (Milwaukee Bucks) and (Atlanta Hawks), but he probably sees every single interview and transcript that comes through from NBA players. So I want the team here, Adam. Thank you.”
In recent months, James had made several smart business moves to involve himself across various sports ownership, including a small stake in English Premier League team Liverpool. It remains to be seen what else he will add to his roster.”
