LeBron James owns the Chicago Bulls...no really, he owns them.
After the Cleveland Cavaliers scored a series-clinching 94-73 Game 6 victory over Chicago on Thursday night, an Internet prankster handed over ownership of the team to LeBron James on the Bulls' Wikipedia page. We're sure after another crushing playoff exit at the hands of King James, Jerry Reinsdorf (the real Bulls owner) wasn't in a laughing mood.
Considering James's teams have eliminated the Bulls in four of the past six postseasons, it's easy to see why this prankster and most hoop fans feel like LeBron 'owns' the Bulls.
King James once again dominated his rival Bulls, averaging a near-triple-double in this Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series against them with final stats of 26.2 points, 11 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game. Sheesh!
The Wikipedia page has since been updated with ownership rights going back to Reinsdorf.
Meanwhile, James's Cavs now await the winner of the Atlanta Hawks-Washington Wizards' series, which the Hawks currently lead, 3-2, with Game 6 on Friday night in Washington, D.C.
