OPRAH and the NBA...A GOOD FIT ? Tom

OPRAH: Set to Buy L.A. Clippers

 

Oprah may be adding an NBA franchise to her media empire.

She's set to join fellow billionaires David Geffen and Larry Ellison in a bid to buy the Los Angeles Clippers if Donald Sterling is forced to sell the team.

Today (Wednesday) Geffen told ESPN, "Oprah is not interested in running the team. She thinks it would be a great thing for an important black American to own [another] franchise... The team deserves a better group of owners who want to win. Larry would sooner die than fail. I would sooner die than fail. Larry’s a sportsman. We’ve talked about this for a long time. Between the three of us, we have a good shot."

Other big names who've been linked to the likely sale include Matt Damon, Diddy and boxer Floyd Mayweather. Experts value the team between $500 million and $1 billion.

Earlier this week, Sterling was banned for life from the NBA and fined $2.5 million after he was taped making racially charged comments.

Tom & Becky

Tom is a proud Syracuse University graduate and a huge Orange Football and Basketball fan. He and his wife Laurie call Syracuse home and spend time in Ft. Myers Florida. Tom loves his family and spends as much time as possible with the kids. Tom loves to play guitar at open mics and other venues and is passionate about golf. Watch for him in his black Corvette Stingray convertible this summer. His favorite guitar players are Clapton and Keith Urban.............Becky is a real fan of country music. Her Mom was also a broadcaster so she grew up in the music business. It is fun to see how country music evolves with the new artists that are available to us. There is nothing better than watching a star grow to a major headlining act in the big stadiums. Becky is a resident of Syracuse, after moving in from the country. She loves the country but doesn't miss the commute. She lives in a very quaint home, which is a lot like a gingerbread house. Becky is a cancer survivor and continues to carry on a mission to promote the fight against this deadly disease. Having cancer made life so much more valuable to her. She is very active in many charity efforts. Becky loves spending time with her family more than anything but also enjoys her new garden and pond that came with the house. She also likes to draw and swim...swim...swim... "I am crazy for that. I get lost in the zone."
