Oprah Winfrey, $2.9 billion

American, Television

Oprah is still the richest African-American person in the world thanks largely to the 25 years of her profitable daytime TV show and earnings from her Harpo production company. Her cable channel, OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) is also cash flow positive for the first time and is enjoying favorable ratings as a result of securing exclusive TV interviews with headline-grabbers like disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, Beyonce and gay NBA player Jason Collins. One of America’s most generous philanthropists, Oprah continues to give to education causes and has spent about $100 million on the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.

As crazy as having a black president ;)


But yeah, having the first female owner, and that too black owner in the National Basketball Association, first ever one, would be monumental.

Does Oprah even pay attention to basketball? I'm honestly asking because if she is just buying it because the previous owner was a racist than I would rather see someone like Magic get it. Magic has already been a part owner of the Lakers and is a part owner of the Dodgers. Magic is an LA guy and has his name up in the rafters at the Staples Center.

I wonder how many owners watch a ton of basketball or know lot about it before buying. Just my two cents

She lives in LA. Her show is in LA. She is an LA gal. She knows exactly what's going on in basketball.

And it really doesn't matter who you would rather see get it. It's whatever is best for business. Having a strong black woman as owner would do even more wonders for the image of the NBA.

Oprah said she wants to do it to represent black Americans. She will NOT be controlling the basketball aspect. That will be left to David Geffen. BTW Geffen said Lebron would of been a Clipper if Sterling sold him the team in 2009 or 2010. I guess Lebron told him that he would never play for Sterling. Imagine Lebron and Blake duo? Jesus Christ.

I think that's true. If they change the owner and with the team playing well. The Lakers better get their **** together quick. You could see the Clippers fully take over the LA market. Yes that might sound crazy but really think about it.

Also I think Oprah would be good for the league.

She's the richest in the US but not even close to being the richest in the world. Aliko Dangote is worth like 25 billion.

Magic didn't want it. He said one day he wants a team but I think the Clippers would just be way too weird...

The ironic part is that if Jimmy wasn't such a clueless jacka$$ Magic would gladly run the Lakers.

Magic forshore wanted them it's rumored him and his partners want a SoCal sports empire ,if they purchase the Clipps their one step closer to domination with Dodgers in pocket. But with Larry and Oprah he doesn't stand a chance they can both out bid him and partners.

She thinks it would be significant if a well known Black Person was an owner of a franchise so she's putting her money and her reputation in. Geffen and Ellison I think are the ones who would be the more hands on owners.
