We’ve obtained photos of the ‘Los Angeles Lakers’ star soaking in the hot Nevada sun, complete with a performance by rap superstar Ja Rule!
In the snaps, James is holding two bottles of his tequila brand — Lobos — because why not do a little business while you are partying. Right?! As you can see, James kept a low-profile sporting a hat and sunglasses but was treated to the full-blown star treatment including handing in the VIP section for the performance.
LeBron James Parties In Las Vegas Amid NBA Ownership Rumors
Obviously, LeBron had the time of his life partying at TAO — if you haven’t been yet, you should go — but it appears this trip might be related to bigger play in the basketball world.
According to recent reports, Lebron Jame is preparing to launch a basketball team in Las Vegas. The basketball star opened up about the situation in a clip from the latest episode of his talk show, ‘The Shop.’
“I wanna own a team. Yeah, I wanna buy a team. For sure,” the basketball star said. Adding, “I want a team in Vegas.”
If you are an NBA fan, this isn’t a new thought for the NBA’s top player — he’s talked about owning an NBA franchise since 2016 and told Jesse Williams and Stefan Marolachakis on “Open Run” that it was always one of his dreams to run a team off the court.
NBA Star LeBron James Take In Ja Rule Performance Inside TAO Beach Dayclub
“I feel like my brain as far as the game of basketball is unique and I would love to continue to give my knowledge to the game, and I would love to be a part of a franchise, if not at the top. My dream is to actually own a team and I don’t need to have fully hands on. If I’m fortunate enough to own a team, then I’m going to hire the best GM and president that I can,” he said in 2016.
Adding, “But I have a feeling like I have a good eye for not only talent because we all see a lot of talent, but the things that make the talent, the chemistry, what type of guy he is, his work ethic, his passion, the basketball IQ side of things, because talent only goes so far.”

Now, back to Vegas. Lebron James was in town — like most basketball fans — watching the summer league which is based in Sin City. So, if you are anyone important the hottest spot to visit is TAO Beach Dayclub. The nightclub group owns and operates some of the biggest night and day spots in town including TAO nightclub and Hakkasan. Again, if you are somebody…this is where you will visit when you come to town.
We are unclear if Lebron popped a bunch of those Tequila bottles, but it’s all good, it’s the off-season!
Cheers big guy!
