By purchasing a stake in the Jazz, Dwyane Wade is joining Grant Hill (Hawks), Shaquille O'Neal (Kings) and Hornets majority owner Michael Jordan as Hall of Fame-level players with NBA ownership stakes.
Make no doubts. This is F'in huge. Wade has been one of the most beloved players in the 20th century. The dude was voted the sexiest athlete alive. He throwing in his hat with the Jazz is like Jay Z joining the Nets. After all the obvious disrespect the Jazz have gotten with there domaince this year (elite hate underdog stories) D Wade backing the Jazz brings national legitimacy. This is f-in huge!
Of all the retired players out there, I can't think of anyone I would rather have as part of the ownership group, even more than former Jazz players. Dwyane is such a good guy and respected everywhere. This is great.
