NBA superstar LeBron James, who already owns a stake in English football club Liverpool, will also become a minority shareholder in the Boston Red Sox baseball (MLB) franchise. Several media outlets report on it.
The 36-year-old reigning NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers and his partner Maverick Carter have become new partners in the Fenway Sports Group (FSG), according to the Boston Globe, USA Today and ESPN, without the latter specifying who is their part.
In addition to the Red Sox, James, who owns 2% of Liverpool FC, has also taken a stake in Roush Fenway Racing, a NASCAR team, a very popular car championship in the United States.
In addition to these investments in professional sports, “LBJ” also owns a film and audiovisual production company, SpringHill Entertainment, which will soon distribute the film “Space Jam 2” where it plays.
