http://www.hoopshype.com/owners.htm Who are the league's real money men? Paul Allen isn't that far off from topping the rest of the league combined, with a $20 billion pot. (Every loser's dream story - Allen left Microsoft in 1983, only to watch from the sidelines as Bill Gates and IBM ended up making him grotesquely rich.) Our own Bill Davidson is tied for #3 with a cool $3.5 billion in estimated net worth. What's interesting is that some of these guys have a lot less than you'd think. Obviously there are some group ownership and bookkeeping tricks involved, but who knows? You may not be as far from owning your own franchise as you thought.
