LeBron James makes direct appeal to Adam Silver about owning an NBA team in Las Vegas

Oct 6, 2022

LeBron James wasn't subtle when he spoke about the prospect of owning an NBA team in Las Vegas.

The Los Angeles Lakers guard lauded the Vegas fanbase before speaking directly to NBA commissioner Adam Silver about his desire to be the person to bring a team to Nevada.

It’s the best fanbase in the world. I would love to bring a team here at some point. That would be amazing," James said after the Lakers' exhibition game loss to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. "I know Adam is in Abu Dhabi right now, I believe. But he probably sees every single interview and transcript that comes through from NBA players.

"So, I want the team here, Adam. Thank you."
