Pro Sports Teams You Could Buy If You Won The $425 Million Powerball Lottery Jackpot
Well, the winning $425 million Powerball ticket is still out there up for grabs and could make somebody very very happy on Wednesday, but what if that person is a sports fan? Wouldn’t you buy your favorite team if you won? Here’s what the going prices are for all pro teams and how they measure up to Wednesday’s jackpot, of course pretending we don’t have to deal with taxes!
There isn’t a single NASCAR Team that’s off limits as they’re all within your budget, the top team being Hendrick Motorsports at $350m.
You can afford all but eight NBA teams, which are the Lakers, Knicks, Bulls, Mavs, Celtics, Heat, Rockets, and the Warriors in that order. The Lakers go for $900m while the Warriors are only $25m too expensive, HA!
Only seven MLB baseball teams are in your range and they are the Reds, Blue Jays, Indians, Royals, Pirates, Rays, and the A’s. Your beloved Yankees are at the top of the list unreachable list at nearly $2 billion, and the Red Sox are $1 billion to own.
You could afford all but the top three NHL teams which are the Maple Leafs ($521m), Rangers ($507m) and Canadiens ($445m). Now if they would only play and earn those values!!
Now for the bad news for all of you football fans… Every single NFL team is out of your reach with the least expensive being the Jaguars at $770 million.. Leading the pack is of course the Dallas Cowboys at $2.1 billion
Careful though, with great power comes great responsibility and even though you may be good at managing a fantasy football team, you could accidentally spell your team’s demise by toying with things too much, or you could totally be an unlikely success and flip your team’s fortunes with a change in ownership, you never know. Either way, it’s fun to imagine what it’d be like to have the power to change the team colors if your wanted or better yet, move them to Utica!! Good luck on Wednesday and don’t forget to add me as at least an assistant coach if you win!
