As a fan of your team how do you view your owner. Im a knicks fan and always hated my owner. One of the worst owners in all sports...

The Bulls owner has been notorious for not spending. Bulls fans how do you respond to this. The recent Carlos Boozer Signing?

Reports are Carmelo wants to leave Denver because of the Firing of the assistant coaches, and the uncertainty of Some Denver Fa's. Denver fans do you blame the owner for Carmelo leaning towards on leaving and not having confidence towards committing to the Nuggets franchise?

This isnt a jab at anyone/any team in particular, i just want to know how the fans feel about their NBA owners and if you appreciate them, or think their idiots.

You can have a good team but still hate the owner for not winning a championship... right?

Pistons owner Mr. Davidson died last year, His gold digging wife took over. The team is currently for sale and she claims the team will be sold by the start of the season. If Tom Gores or Mike Illitch buys the team I'll be very happy.

I was happy with how Mr Davidson ran the team.

Well as a Warriors fan I can speak for the majority by saying we love our owners. Even though they have only been there for a month or so, and actually haven't finalized the sale, anything is a step up from Chris Cohan. He was the worst owner in the league.

We basically feel like Tim Robbins in Shawshank after he escaped from prison and held his arms out while staring up into the rain which was washing off all of the excrament he crawled through to get out.

Heat fan. Our franchise really made it's mark when we Mickey Arison purchased the team. He got Pat Riley soon afterwards, which is the greatest move in our franchise history.

Some fans complain that Mickey was being stingy by not paying the luxury tax after the title year, but I always felt he was doing this because it's smart cap management and it might compromise our plans for the 2010 free agency.

Needless to say, we love our owner.

Laker fan so of course I love the owner. Buss is the man, will spend to win. In fact I wish he owned the Dodgers as well.

Buss is the ****, always wants to win. Pretty much everything you can ask for from an owner.

jazz-larry miller just passed but so far greg miller looks like a great owner. He spent a lot of money jefferson and then spent some more money on raja bell. Pretty much the millers have spent money even though the jazz are one of the lowest revenue teams.

heat-micky arison has been stingy when the team doesn't win, but if they have a chance too he is willing to spend money to make it happen.

I guess Stan Kroenke has done a decent job. He really got lucky in getting Melo in the draft. He's spent some money but is always a little unwilling to take that final step. His organization is a little unorganized. There has been no clear GM and that has taken its toll. I honestly wish he would sell the team to someone other than his son.

I think the prevailing view among Philly fans is the Snider isn't any good - mostly because he only really cares about the Flyers and does a cheap, half-assed job with the Sixers.

I don't know enough about him, but he's made some poor personnel decisions, so I'm not a fan.

James Dolan, on the other hand, I would hate if I was a Knicks fan. Not only is he a sucky owner, but he's just a cringeworthy and embarrassing person.

I hate Dolan as our owner. Destroyed the Rangers and continued with the Knicks.

Reinsdorf brought 7 titles to Chicago during a time the other teams won 0, until the Blackhawks recently won.

So to say I love him, would not be much of an exaggeration.

As a magic fan. Mr Devous has been really good with spending and smart with people. Willing to take a risk when advantagous and smart enough to fold a bad hand (Weisbrod) when the risk fails. So far I can't complain for medium market like Orlando. Don't be surprised when the heat get bumped this year

i think a young gentleman by the name of michael jordan had more to do with that than reinsdorf.

Larry Miller. After losing Stocken and Malone the Jazz didn't miss a beat plus he seems like a class act.

And of course I love Mr. Buss.

MLSE owns them and Peddie is president of MLSE. Who owns the Raptors then smartass? Last time I checked it was MLSE, of which Peddie is the president of. :facepalm: to the max for you.
