NBA star LeBron James welcomes Beckham's Miami foray

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James admits he would like to become closer with soccer great David Beckham.

The former Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy ace has plans to launch a MLS franchise in Miami which has been met with plenty of positivity by James.

The four-time NBA MVP told US TV that he would like to help Beckham and his family settle if the move does happen to come about.

"It's excellent news for Miami sport that he chose us," said James.

"I met him when he came to watch The Heat play. He seems a cool guy so I'd like to get to know him more.

"I know things can be kind of crazy at the start, so I'd like to invite his family around our house to have dinner with our family. We live in a great neighbourhood - it would be cool to be neighbours."
