Could LeBron follow Michael Jordan’s footsteps as a player-turned-owner?

LeBron James,   Simas Jasaitis

 

LeBron James is the very model of the modern athlete. The Cleveland Cavaliers star has a huge fountain of income beyond his huge $20-million-plus salary. Nike, McDonalds, Coke … he has endorsement deals all over. He’s a part-owner in a soccer club and has his hands in dozens of other investments.

With James’ love of basketball, and his endeavors to not just be an athlete, but a business force in sports and entertainment, it’s not hard to see him as a potential owner someday, much like Michael Jordan. Cleveland.com asked LeBron about Jordan’s tenure as an owner, and James definitely revealed he looks at Jordan as the model for making the player-to-owner transition.
