17 Sport Teams’ Millionaire Owners

We have many ways to find out information; yesterday, going through the American Business Magazine, I was drawn to an article about millionaires all over the world and I decided share with you what called my attention the most.

According to the article, Bill Gates is the richest man in the world and actually it wasn´t something new for me (and I’m sure that neither for you) and gave us the next nine richest persons of the world . However, what caught my attention was to found the sports team owners inside the list of the thousand millionaires.

Did you know that Michael Jordan entered by first time inside this list?

Maybe he didn´t to the top pf the list but the important fact here is that he has been enhancing his gains to a point that he is currently making 1 000 millions of dollars per year; although a different media claim that this 1000 million come from royalties received on his brand Nike Air Jorda. There is no way to know if any of this is for sure, due to the lack of information given by his partner Estee Portnoy has never made comments about their financial status. And many of Michael Jordan’s gains come also from the team that he owns, the Charlotte ºHornets who has a value of $700 million .

On the list, at position #393 is Jerry Jones whith $4.2 billion , Jerry is the President and General Manager of the Dallas Cowboys; media says that at 1989 the first inversion that Jones did was $150million for the NFL team which current worth is $3.2 billion; he did a good job, don´t you thing?

Robert Kraft is another owner in a good position within the list winning $4.3 billion (#381). His team the New England Patriots has been giving him many victories and proudest moments since the Super Bowl and the success of his quarterback Tom Brady who has the opportunity to be inside the Hall of Fame .

Inside the list, according to the article, is found the Dolans Family, owners of the New York Nicks and the Rangers, with a gain of $4.3 million ; Ted Lerner owner of the Washington Nationals with $4.9 million and with the position #330 of the list; Shahid Khan who is good known because of his unique mustache and who is owner of Jacksonville Jaguars and wins $4.8 million.

Also Michael Litch owner of the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings; Rich DeVos owner of Orlando Magic are part of the list. Stan Kroenke owner of St. Louis Rams, Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche and Arsenal has the position #225.

There’s also Stephen Ross owner of the Miami Dolphins and Micky Arison of the Miami Heat, Roman Abramovich owner of Chelsea and Mikhail Prokhorov of Brooklyn Nets; Phil Anschutz owner of Los Angeles Kings, Paul Allen who is on the second position between the teams owners and who has the teams of the Seattle Seahawks and Trail Blazer, Steve Ballmer of the Clippers are the owners that conform the list of the richest guys of the world.
