You have to wonder if King James’ goal in the end is to own a little bit of everything. He’s been dominating the NBA for the better part of two decades, now owns parts of multiple sports teams and has a skyrocketing Hollywood career.
You can hate him all you want, but the Los Angeles Lakers forward is absolutely crushing life.
