Serena Williams and his Millionaire husband Alexis Ohanian might become new owners in the NBA one day. Ohanian once described his love for the Brooklyn Nets which could possibly convince him to buy a small part of the NY side in the future. The league does have its own share of celebrity star owners, like the legendary Michael Jordan. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal also recently reiterated his wish of owning an NBA team. 

Alexis Ohanian is the co-founder of the major social media application Reddit, and therefore, has a lot of experience in running big organizations. As his wife Serena Williams is a sporting legend herself, Ohanian’s wish of owning an sports team seems pretty reasonable. However, the seasoned entrepreneur has a completely different reason to buy the team.
