Recently, rumors circulated that the NBA will increase the number of teams in its franchise, the new team is said to be based in Las Vegas.
Adam Silver as the NBA Commissioner himself has confirmed that the presence of a new team in Las Vegas could appear, considering that one of the cities in Nevada, United States of America is included in the expansion list.
Adam Silver seems to reflect on the Hockey (NFL) and American Football (NFL) titles which first spread to Las Vegas.
The possibility of the presence of a new NBA team in Las Vegas also makes several issues arise. One of them is LeBron James who is likely to be the owner of the team from the city of Nevada.
This rumor emerged after The Ringer founder, Bill Simmons mentioned the name LeBron James would be the founder and owner of the NBA team in Las Vegas.
“I have some insiders. I think the (NBA) league will expand to Las Vegas and Seattle. And I think the strongest candidate for the team in Las Vegas is Fenway Sports Group (FSG),” said Bill Simmons Hoops Hype.
