Judging from his complete domination on the court, it’s safe to say that LeBron James still has plenty more left in the tank and will be around the league in the foreseeable future.

Still, the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player is already looking ahead, baring his ultimate aspiration upon retirement.

“I will own a team someday,” James told Ken Berger of The Athletic.

“I think it’ll be cool. I’ll stay part of the game and still be able to put people in positions of power. I’ve always loved that, putting people in a position of power to feel like they can make a change and make things happen,” he said.

Following the footsteps of his “Airness” Michael Jordan, the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar has shunned the idea of coaching one day, instead setting his sights on buying his own NBA franchise.

Jordan, of course, purchased a minority share of his hometown team Charlotte Bobcats (now Hornets) in 2006, and majority ownership in 2010.

James’ ambitious dream seems to be attainable considering the massive wealth he has accumulated throughout his playing years.

Apart from his multimillion-dollar salary, “The King” earns significantly from multiple endorsement deals and even has a lifetime deal with Nike.  Khristian Ibarrola /ra
