Curry’s Join Goldman’s Black Women Initiative, Timberwolves Deal Back On, McGregor Top Earning Athlete

BASKETBALL

Stephen and Ayesha Curry joined the advisory council for Goldman Sachs’s One Million Black women Initiative which will work to invest more than $10 billion in Black women-led organizations over the next 10 years.

It appears Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has agreed to a deal to sell the team to Alex Rodriguez and Marc Lore for $1.5 billion. According to reports, Taylor has insisted the team remain in Minnesota. The NBA hasn’t approved the pending deal yet, so both sides haven’t made any official statements.

TOP EARNING ATHLETES

Ultimate Fighting Champ Conor McGregor tops the list of highest-earning athletes at $180 million, most of it coming from the sale of his whiskey brand, Proper No.12. Rounding out the top ten is Lionel Messi ($130M), Cristiano Ronaldo ($120M), Dak Prescott ($107.5M), LeBron James ($96.5M), Neymar ($95M), Roger Federer ($90M), Lewis Hamilton ($82M), Tom Brady ($76M), and Kevin Durant ($75M).
