It appears Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James may have some future aspirations. He sat down with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols to discuss his dream of becoming an owner of a franchise with which he could make some smooth moves, hire advisers and negotiate contract deals with players.

“I would love to be a part of a franchise, and if I’m fortunate enough financially to have my own team, that would be awesome,” James said. “Hopefully I could put a winning team together.”

Cavs fans likely are not ready to see James leave the game for any reason anytime soon, but it sounds like he may have a cool plan in his post-NBA phase.
