The amounts of money being talked about are incredible. There is a lot of money in basketball and he must think it is a good investment. One thing for sure, if i had this amount of money, do i really need the hassle of owning a sports team, i think not

The rich guys want a new thing to play and buy a sport team. And a Casino owner was the right owner dor a sports team to gamble. I unserstand the motivation for that, but it was not good for the sport in my opinion.

You have no way to know it. Someone who pays 2 billion dollars and another two hundred million will focus much on the new business. As the article says in 1993 he lost a bidding with Leslie Alexander but now he buys the team. In this new acquisition has put a lot of money and does not want to lose. A dream come true.

lately, I'm a little shocked by the huge numbers in deals with sports players and teams .... Neimar, Mayweather now this news ...... I certainly understand that over time, prices should rise ... inflation and so on ... .. but such figures are beyond my understanding ... hmm. Confused

wow, just wow... to shell out two billions of dollars for a basketball team is quite outrageous, not sure whether this ca be called a good business decision, somehow I don't think that in 20-30 years or so someone will come and offer 20 billions... quite the opposite, maybe price will go back to original 100 millions or so...

That is what you call an investment.
From 85 millions in 1993, to a massive 2.2 billions today.
And he must have made a profit, from having the team all these years.
With no doubt it is a great retirement package Smile

US$2.2 billion deal! That's an astronomical amount of money! Tilman allegedly paid 33% premium to buy Houston Rockets.
The Houston area got affected by Hurricane Harvey. Many people have lost their homes to this natural disaster. An undetermined number of people are still missing. It will take years to rebuild the city of Houston.

This is such big amount of money that i just cannot think how do people earn so much so they can just go and buy a team for 2 billions of dollars. And why? There is more better investments like real estate, land, forests, natural resources... and now go and buy a team.

The printing presses have spit out enormous amounts of money during the last 10 years, that dont make their way into the real economy, but pop up at ever stranger locations. That is one of those.
