Alibaba’s Tsai Buys Rest Of Nets, Lakers Permission To Speak To Howard, A’s Fan’s Fairy Tale


Alibaba co-founder Joe Tsai bought the remaining portion of the Brooklyn Nets he didn’t already own from Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov. According to the AP, Tsai paid $2.4 billion for the team, making it the biggest deal ever for a U.S. sports franchise. In a separate deal, Tsai also bought the Nets’ arena, the Barclays Center for close to $1 billion. Tsai attended the Lawrenceville School and then went on to Yale where he played lacrosse.

Will Dwight Howard become an LA Laker now that their star center DeMarcus Cousins is out from a torn ACL? The Lakers have been granted permission from the Memphis Grizzlies to speak to Howard, but according to a team source, “The Lakers’ interest in Howard is more due diligence at this point.” Howard played for the Lakers in 2012, and if he goes back, it would be his sixth team over five seasons.


Recently, the Oakland A’s signed baseball fan Nathan Patterson to a contract after throwing a 96 mph ball in a speed-pitch booth while attending a game with his brother. This fairy tale story gets even better after Nathan struck out all three batters he faced in his debut with the A’s rookie-level Arizona League.
