LeBron James, who already owned 2% of Liverpool, also became a minority shareholder in the Boston Red Sox. Although his dream remains to take over an NBA franchise.
An unexpected announcement. A longtime supporter of the Yankees, but also the Indians and then the Dodgers since his arrival in Los Angeles, LeBron James has become a minority shareholder in the Boston Red Sox, another legendary franchise of MLB (Major League Baseball) and historical rival of the New York Yankees. Lhe Lakers star player (36), who already owns 2% of Liverpool FC since 2011, has invested an unknown sum in Fenway Sports Group (FSG), who specifically own the Reds as well as the Red Sox and their respective stadiums (Anfield and Fenway Park).
A first in Red Sox history
“It’s great to be with FSG, such a large group. They have achieved so many great things, it’s amazing to be their partner, in a franchise with such a history,” he said on Tuesday. The success of Angelenos against Wolves (137-121), a game in which he achieved a new triple-double (25 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists). And the fact that he stayed with my partner Maverick (Carter, his manager since 2006) lthe first two black men in history to own this franchise, I think it’s pretty damn cool anyway. ”
He wanted to take over a WNBA team
“King James”, which aims to become the owner of an NBA franchise, had applied at the beginning of the year to acquire a WNBA team, the Atlanta Dream. A team whose former co-owner, short-lived Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler, ended up reselling its shares (49%) after being fired by all League players for opposing the social justice movement. And in the end, former player Renee Montgomery now owns it. “I have so much to give to the game,” James said again Tuesday night. I know what it takes to win at this level, and I know what a talent is. I also know how to run a business. So my goal is to own an NBA franchise, and it will happen faster than expected. ”
