With the NBA lockout providing limited forms of sport-related activity for professional basketball players, LeBron James, the two-time MVP, took a trip to Anfield, England, to watch the Liverpool – Manchester United match earlier today.
After agreeing to the terms set by Fenway Sports Management, James became a minority stakeholder of Liverpool FC, back in April, earlier this year.
Never failing to neglect his high, social network usage, James uploaded multiple pictures to Facebook and Twitter, sharing his journey through England’s culture capital.
“Eighteen championships,” James said of Liverpool’s success. “I see myself trying to do the same things they have.”
To go along with a storied history of championships, Liverpool’s revenues for the 2009-10 season were a reported £200 million ($320 million), making it the world’s eighth-largest European football team.
Last season was another unsuccessful journey to an NBA championship for James. Perhaps some inspiration from his overseas business-venture can help transfer some of the winning formula back to South Beach, once the lockout is over.
