Basketball’s King obviously has the Midas Touch when it concerns pickleball too … ’cause Major League Pickleball founder Steve Kuhn informs TMZ SportsLeBron James‘ current investment in the league brought BILLIONS of eyeballs to the sport!!!
And, while LeBron’s addition in the action was substantial for the league … he’s barely the only sports super star to delve into the mix. Everyone from Tom Brady to Drew Brees to Patrick Mahomes, Naomi Osaka and Kevin Durant have actually purchased into the MLP too.
Even LeBron’s finest pal, Rich Paul, is a financier — and he informed us previously this month he might see it all ultimately ending up being a big handle the U.S.
As for if the NBA and NFL gamers would ever get ON the pickleball court … Kuhn — like the rest people — is hoping that takes place quickly.
