Larry Ellison Would Be Richest Owner In Sports

New, 5 comments

Apparently I sold Ellison short when I said he'd be the richest NBA owner. There's an even more distinctive title that he'd enjoy, and by a wide margin. Here are the rich sports owners who cracked the top 50, with billionaire, team said billionaire owns, age and net worth indicated below.

6th: Lawrence Ellison (Golden State Warriors?), 65 years old, $28 billion

37th: Paul Allen (Portland Trailblazers), 57 years old, $13.5 billion

39th: Mikhail Prokhorov (New Jersey Nets), 44 years old, $13.4 billion

50th: Roman Abramovich (Chelsea), 43 years old, $11.2 billion

He wouldn't be the richest person with sports interests though. Warren Buffett still tops him in second place with his stake in Triple-A Omaha.
