LeBron James reveals his post-retirement dreams

LeBron James is the undisputed king of the NBA right now. After an incredible playoff campaign that saw him win his third championship and finals MVP trophy, he has truly established himself among the league's all-time greats.

And it appears he wants to follow in the footsteps of another transcendent talent when he finally decides it is time to give up the grind.

At 31, there is still a lot of basketball to be played in his career, but, like Michael Jordan before him, franchise ownership is something that he is interested in. James recently said the ghost of the former Chicago Bulls man was what motivated him, and emulating his success off the court would lead to a bright future.

As per ESPN, he said: "I would love to continue to give my knowledge to the game. I would love to be a part of a franchise -- if not at the top. ... My dream is to actually own a team. I don't need to [be] fully hands-on. If I'm fortunate enough to own a team, then I'll going to hire the best GM and president that I can."

Before that, however, there is the small task of defending the Larry O'Brien trophy against the Golden State Warriors and their newly-assembled superteam. Having added Kevin Durant to the mix, the Bay Area franchise are even more stacked, but that will only drive LeBron on to achieve more history.

If he manages to win again, and take his finals record to 4-4, he really will move alongside MJ as the greatest ever.
