Mayweather met with Los Angeles Lakers great and current president of basketball operations Magic Johnson on Thursday in LA and the two apparently talked about NBA ownership.

“It’s about time for me to buy an NBA team, if you’re ready to sell your NBA team, please get in touch with me,” Mayweather wrote on Twitter.
According to Forbes, Mayweather is worth $340million, which would make him one of the poorer National Basketball Association owners since 20 of the teams are owned by billionaires.
If Mayweather is serious about making a bid for an NBA team, he will likely have to team up with another financial partner, as Derek Jeter is doing in working with Jeb Bush and others in a bid to buy the MLB’s Miami Marlins.
