For our first installment of "Get to know an NBA owner", I have randomly selected Micky Arison, the owner of the Miami Heat. Mister Arison became wealthy at age 30 when he inherited his father's Carnival cruise ship business. All Carnival vessels are registered in foreign countries, costing the American taxpayer an estimated $360 million annually. Mister Arison's current net worth is around $5 billion. Among his many material possesions are four "superyachts", including the 21st largest yacht owned by an American (more on "superyachts" to come).
