LeBron James continues to play at a high level and remains one of the best players in the NBA, still making his mark as one of the best players of all-time as well. While the Cleveland Cavaliers are off to a rough start right now, with a 50-6 record, any team with LeBron in the lineup is a contender to rebound and win a lot of games. From the sound of it, James has his sights set on winning for a very long time.

LeBron has big plans for the future

Heading into the 2017-18 NBA season, LeBron James refused to talk about his future. Most fans expect LeBron to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers when the season ends, possibly trying to build another super team on the West Coast with the Los Angeles Lakers.

However, LeBron also refuses to waive his no-trade clause with Cleveland and has not said he will leave the team he has led to three straight NBA title games.

As a matter of fact, Bleacher Report indicates that LeBron James might be willing to follow in Michael Jordan's footsteps with one big change. Jordan is the owner of the Charlotte Hornets following a career where he was the best player in NBA history with the Chicago Bulls.

However, LeBron said that he would be interested in owning part of the Cleveland Cavaliers, buying an interest in his home team that he has led to such success as a player. However, even if he never gets a chance to buy the team from Dan Gilbert, LeBron has his mind set on the next step in his future.

LeBron James will buy an NBA team

LeBron James admitted that there is also a chance that Dan Gilbert won't sell the Cleveland Cavaliers. He said that if there was a conversation to buy the Cavaliers then he would consider it. However, James then said that whether it is Cleveland or another NBA team, he "will own a team someday."

Much like Michael Jordan, who never got a chance to own the Chicago Bulls, LeBron James has no problem owning a team, even if it is not the Cleveland Cavaliers.

LeBron said that owning an NBA team will be his "next thing" after his playing career comes to a close.

LeBron James then said that it would be "cool" to remain "part of the game." He wants to be the man to put people in positions of power and watch them make a change with the team and make things happen.

Of course, it would take a lot of money for LeBron James to buy any team.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are worth $1.2 million. The Houston Rockets just sold to Tilman J. Fertitta for #2.2 billion. LeBron would have to set up an ownership group. LeBron James has made $203.7 million in NBA contracts and has a reported $1 billion lifetime contract with Nike.
