Carmelo Anthony joins LeBron James in potential ownership bid of Atlanta Dream
LeBron James has been placing his ties in some ownership after his playing days with the Los Angeles Lakers are long over. The future Hall of Famer has been in negotiations recently in regards to taking control of some ownership in the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream franchise.
As James made it known on Wednesday that he was willing to put together an ownership group for the Dream, his longtime friend Carmelo Anthony seems to want in on the opportunity:

James shared a tweet on Tuesday following the Georgia Senate runoffs of the Atlanta Dream team and his desire to put together an ownership group for the organization:
So far, LeBron James has received quite a bit of backing from fellow athletes that wish to support the four-time MVP in his journey. Mookie Betts of the Los Angeles Dodgers also made sure to voice his support as well for the coalition on Twitter.
The unison to bring in new ownership to the Dream stems from the tension between their players and co-owner Senator Kelly Loeffler. Loeffler lost the support of her team after she openly voiced her support for Trump and denounced the BLM movement, which prompted players to wearing shirts that stated “Vote Warnock” as the elections came around.
Rev. Raphael Warnock actually went on to win the runoff election on Tuesday against Loeffler, giving the Democrats control of the Senate along with a key victory from Jon Ossoff.
Now it appears most athletes will turn their attention to removing Loeffler from the sports world if possible, led by LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony.
