LeBron James doesn't plan on leaving the NBA realm anytime soon.

At the rate LeBron James is going, he could probably play well into his 70s, but in the event he someday retires, he already has his plans figured out, according to Ken Berger of The Athletic.

"I will own a team someday," James told Berger. "That's my next thing."

"Why do I want to own team?" he continued. "I think it'll be cool. I'll stay part of the game and still be able to put people in positions of power. I've always loved that, putting people in a position of power to feel like they can make a change and make things happen."

James went on to note he'd want to continue to work with his current business partners: Maverick Carter and Randy Mims, along with agent Rich Paul.

James, 32, is in his 14th season in the NBA, and posted career highs in rebounds and assists per game. He'll play in his seventh straight NBA Finals starting June 1.
