It's a list of the wealthiest to least wealthiest owners, and our own Peter Holt is tied for last with "only" 80 million. Just in comparison, Portland's owner Paul Allen is the wealthiest with 20 billion.





Here is a list of "backcourt bargains", with our own Tony Parker topping the list:

Note, if you scroll down Brent Barry is on the "Overpaid" list for backcourt players.






Just a couple of interesting things. Mr. Roger's Cardigan posted this in the NBA forum, and I noticed these things mentioned above. It's amazing that Holt is the least wealthiest, yet has this team playing at the highest level. As for Parker, he's a great bargain, well, until next year when he'll be making about 6 times what he is now.

The PETER HOLT is one of the top 5 richest people in the world so i've been told.
