Despite being one of the oldest players in the league at 37, LeBron "King" James is still one of the top NBA players on the court today.

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar, who most recently became the first active NBA player to reach billionaire status, is already thinking about his post-playing days. And, among other plans, he has set his sights on becoming a team owner.

In a teaser clip of an upcoming episode of HBO's The Shop: Uninterrupted, James reveals he's looking at Las Vegas as the possible location for an NBA franchise.

"I want to buy a team, for sure," he says. "I want a team in Vegas. Yeah, I want the team in Vegas."

With his quick-thinking ability on the court and business savvy mind off, there's no doubt James could achieve his ambition to own a Sin City-based organization. Take the time back in 2014 when he set himself the goal of becoming a billionaire in less than a decade – a mission he completed with two years to spare.

The four-time NBA champion already has ownership stakes in the Boston Red Sox and Liverpool FC. Next stop, Vegas?
