Houston Texans superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has spoken with the Houston Rockets ace about his interest in the Dynamo and more. Hopkins, who has a history with soccer from his playing days as a kid, is someone who helps bring soccer to underserved communities in Houston.
“James is a friend of mine, so of course I’ve talked to him about it," Hopkins told MLSsoccer.com at the league's FORWARD25 event in New York City, where he repped the Houston Dynamo and presented the club's new 2020 jersey. "That’s big in the sports world, for athletes to also be owners of a team. That made noise as soon as it happened.”
Perhaps Hopkins will follow his friend into ownership?
“Hopefully down the line somewhere," Hopkins said. "But right now, I’m just focusing on my job.”
