Rick Ross wants to buy Michael Rubin’s stake in 76ers, become coolest NBA owner
Rapper and Big MF Rick Ross has expressed interest in purchasing a stake in the Sixers. After co-owner Michael Rubin announced his intention to sell his 10% of the team to focus on his growing Fanatics empire, Ricky Rozay threw his hat into the ring on Instagram.
Rick Ross makes an offer:
I don’t know about you, but I think he would be a perfect fit for the organization. His beard alone would inspire James Harden to new heights.
Plus, Ross himself underwent a massive weight loss transformation. So he could give Harden the coaching and motivation he needs to slim down a bit.
I expect Ross’ first step would be adding pears to the training facility menu, as they were instrumental in his weight loss journey.
Having him own a small stake in the team would work perfectly.
I’m sure his leadership style is much like his music: underwhelming when he’s the leading man. BUT when you have him as a featured artist, it’s gold every time.
Pusha-T said he always has the perfect feature, and it’s true. “Featured Owner” has a nice ring to it, too. That or “The Sixers feat. Rick Ross” would make for some quality promotional materials.
Sure, the Sixers are valued at $2.45 billion – the 11th highest in the league – meaning Ross would have to pay around $245 million for that 10%. Certainly a steep price for anybody regardless of financial situation.
I would never pocket-watch another grown man, especially not a man of Ross’ stature (both physically and societally). Even so, he may need a group of investors to secure the 10%.
