Floyd Mayweather is trying to join Michael Jordan as the only Black person with majority ownership in an NBA franchise. The retired boxing champion revealed that he made an offer to buy an NBA team.
“I’ve been working on buying an NBA team outright. One of my other business partners, Brent Johnson, he’s here. So we’ve been working on the NBA team for a while now. It’s kinda, it’s rough… he said.
Buying a sports team is a costly endeavor, but not surprisingly, “Money Mayweather” says he has the money. “It could be the Vegas franchise. It could be the Seattle franchise or I could be buying a franchise that’s already up and running. So the first offer, we offered them a little over $2 billion for majority ownership. Do I have it? Absolutely, I have it, but it didn’t happen overnight. It didn’t happen overnight. It’s a lot when you have so many different businesses all around the world. It’s a lot.”
Mayweather talked about the possible acquisition at a recent event, check it out below.
