LeBranfield Road?

It seems Miami Heat superstar LeBron James has continued his extensive business wheelings and dealing by striking a partnership with the Boston Red Sox owners Fenway Sports Group that will give him an ownership stake in Liverpool.

Do note this one particular passage in the article:

Mr. James wants to pursue partnerships similar to his deal with hip-hop impresario Dr. Dre. The pair last year launched a line of high-performance sports headphones known as PowerBeats. Coincidentally, Mr. James and Dr. Dre met Fenway Red Sox executives on Opening Day at Fenway Park in 2010 in a promotional event for the headphones.

And guess who else just happens to be a big Liverpool supporter... yup, the mighty D.R.E. himself. Makes one wonder if he will follow the NBA star's lead and become the first hip hop giant to become part-owner of a European club, beating previous candidates Diddy and JayZ.
