When his playing days are over, Kevin Durant has big aspirations.
He wants to eventually own an NBA team.
"I wish I had the money. It's crazy," Durant told ESPN's Darren Rovell. "Obviously, the financial part is definitely going to be the hardest part. I've been part of two great organizations. I know the game inside and out and I know the players. And I feel like these NBA franchises just change lives. They change cities. I would love to do that.
"All the aspects of owning a team, I would love to be involved in -- from the financial and marketing side to the team-building to the camaraderie to the coaching."
In 2017, Durant took home $60.6 million, making him the fifth highest paid athlete in the world, according to Forbes.
In the coming years, that number is only going to increase as he will eventually sign a max deal with the Warriors.
Additionally, Durant is a "made man" in Silicon Valley, and continues to grow his portfolio.
As Rovell writes:
His investment arm, the Durant Company, claims early-stage investments from $250,000 to $1 million in roughly 30 companies through a network of venture capitalists, including online digital-currency platform Coinbase, spare-change app Acorns, cloud-computing startup Rubrik, drink company WTRMLN WTR, fast-casual pizza chain Pieology, bike-sharing company LimeBike and delivery company Postmates.
What's "crazy" is that a guy with this much money may not have enough money to own a team.
Yeah, the NBA is in a pretty good place financially...
