    LeBron wants a ‘team in Vegas’

    LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, recently declared by Forbes magazine as the NBA’s first active player worth USD1 billion, has a new goal – owning an NBA team in Las Vegas.

    The 37-year-old playmaker was shown in a social media video clip from yesterday’s edition of his talk show The Shop declaring his latest NBA desire.

    “I want to own a team,” James said. “I want to buy a team, for sure. I want a team in Vegas. I want the team in Vegas.”

    Las Vegas has been often mentioned as a prime spot for an expansion club along with Seattle, although NBA commissioner Adam Silver said this week there are no immediate plans for expansion from 30 teams.

    But there is a plan for a major new arena in Vegas, which is already the home of a National Football League (NFL) and National Hockey League (NHL) team and is often mentioned as a possible relocation site for Major League Baseball’s Oakland A’s.

    James, a four-time NBA champion and four-time NBA Most Valuable Player, owns SpringHill Company, an entertainment development and production firm that made Space Jam: A New Legacy – a film released last year starring James.
