Two basketball legends, LeBron James and Shaquille O’Neal, have expressed interest in potentially owning an NBA expansion team in Las Vegas.
While James had initially hinted at teaming up with the Fenway Sports Group for this venture, O’Neal had insisted on having his own group.
However, O’Neal recently adjusted his stance, expressing a willingness to be involved in an NBA team’s ownership, with or without LeBron.
The duo, former teammates with the Cleveland Cavaliers, share an interest in joining ownership groups, but specifics remain uncertain.
As the NBA focuses on a new national media rights deal, the potential expansion, particularly in Las Vegas and Seattle, will be a topic for future discussions.
For now, the basketball world eagerly awaits developments in these players-turned-owners’ ambitions.
