LeBron James has his eyes on his post-NBA career.

But no one thought that would come so soon.

And LeBron James just bought a part of this famed Major League Baseball team.

When LeBron James signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, everyone understood it was just as much about setting up LeBron James as a business and Hollywood mogul for his post playing days.

James made good on that promise when it was announced that he would join the Fenway Sports Group, which owns the storied Boston Red Sox franchise, with a $750 million dollar investment.

The Boston Globe reports:

Fenway Sports Group’s ambitious growth plans took a major step forward Tuesday with the addition of two new partners, one a New York-based investment firm and the other one of the best known names in professional sports.

The parent company of the Red Sox and Liverpool Football Club approved a $750 million private investment that would make RedBird Capital Partners its third-largest partner, according to a source with knowledge of the deal. The partnership will infuse cash that can help launch FSG’s efforts to acquire more teams.

The other new FSG partner needs no introduction: LeBron James.

James has some experience as an owner.

The Lakers star bought a two percent share in the legendary English football club Liverpool F.C., part of the Premier League, back in 2011.

Fenway Sports Group is also the parent company of Liverpool FC.

LeBron James is clearly on the back nine of his NBA career.

James will be 37 in December and he’s facing the end of his playing days in the near future.

Now it looks like LeBron could be following in the footsteps of New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter and looking to transition into an ownership role in his post-playing days.

Of course, the announcement isn’t without controversy, given James is a well-known Yankees fan . . .
