LeBron James Tells GQ After Retiring From NBA, He’ll Pursue a Career In Comedy

LeBron James will end up retiring as the greatest basketball player of all time. Even if he doesn’t win as many championships as Jordan he’ll end up accumulating enough MVP trophies, scoring titles, NBA championships and accolades for a bigger career. Jordan can blame those couple of years as a White Sox for giving James the slight edge.

Also, the fact that James isn’t bored yet, according to a recent interview in an upcoming issue of GQ.

“Winning is my drug,” James tells GQ. Ten years into his career, he strives to be the best. “My drive to be the greatest basketball player ever is very high,” says James.

Naturally, when a human dominates one pursuit, he turns his attention to other avenues where he also feels he’ll excel. LeBron wants to be the next Will Ferrell.

He also talks about what he wants to achieve outside of his basketball career, including being a comedy actor, singer, Picasso. And a billionaire. “If it happens. It’s my biggest milestone. Obviously. I want to maximize my business. And if I happen to get it, if I happen to be a billionaire athlete, ho. Hip hip hooray! Oh, my God, I’m gonna be excited,” he tells GQ.

James goes on to explain that fatherhood is a lot like sports because he’s the leader of his household and the leader in Miami. As a father, running a household is nothing like leading a group of grown men, unless Birdman sticks his hand down his pants and wipes his own shit on the walls and Chris Bosh is down to one nap a day and super irritable.
