Jeff Bezos finally reclaimed his spot as the second richest person in the world, after overtaking Indian Businessman Gautam Adani. And he seems to have got another massive offer from NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal to buy an NBA team.

It’s known for some time now that the Phoenix Suns are up for sale. The controversy with their owner, Robert Sarver, has made him put the Suns and the WNBA team, Phoenix Mercury, up for sale. Sarver was suspended by the league for a year and fined $10 Million after an allegation was made against him last season. And after a thorough investigation, the NBA found him guilty and handed him a suspension and fine.

And after several sponsors started pulling out, Sarver made the decision to sell his teams. He has reportedly put them up for sale and is considering offers. And rumours say that Bezos is reportedly interested in buying the team.

Bezos has emerged as the frontrunner to buy the Suns. And he clearly has the money for it. Others are also in the fray, but Bezos has emerged as the favourite. Shaq was also interested in putting in a bid for the Suns, but when he heard Bezos was also in the fray, he backed out. He said, ” I was interested but when Big Man JB said he was interested, nobody can compete with Big Man JB. Once Jeff Bezos put his name in the hat, all you others just close your chequebook and go home.”
