Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James is successful in every aspect of life. He is a devoted husband and caring dad. Oh, yes, he is also one of the highest-paid athletes in the world. There’s more. LeBron is also the best basketball player to ever hit the court. The four-time NBA champion has a lot of endorsement deals and exceptional portfolio. Well, LeBron is also a proud sports owner.
The king of basketball has a partial ownership share of the English club. LeBron bought 2 percent of Liverpool for $6.5 million in 2011. Things changed overtime and the value of his share reached $32 million. He watched his team make the Champions League final with a 3-2 win over Villarreal. That’s more than great and LeBron took to Twitter to celebrate the great success. He was more than happy to see Liverpool make the third final appearance in five years.
LeBron is a proud sports owner for a reason
LeBron is really interested in this part of the world of sports and he decided to spice things up. In 2021, King James became a partner in Fenway Sports Group.
Things go really well for Liverpool. Is LeBron their lucky charm? Liverpool got the 19th Premier League title in 2020. The team won the sixth Champions League crown the year before. Want more? Liverpool also won the EFL Cup final at Wembley Stadium in February.
LeBron has to be patient now because his team is still waiting for the winner of the game between Real Madrid and Manchester City. May 28 is a big day for the world of football and everyone hopes for the best.
King James has plenty of free time at the moment. His team didn’t make the playoffs this season and he is free to take care of his businesses. Liverpool makes his day better and LeBron enjoys every bit of his offseason. Just like any other football fan. He is not competing now, but he definitely enjoys watching his team win. When it comes to winning, LeBron’s Lakers have to get back in the groove.
