Will & Jada Smith Become Minority Owners Of The 76ers

The Fresh Prince is headed back to Philly! Somewhat, anyway. Will Smith and his lovely wife Jada are now minority owners of the Phillidephia 76ers. The NBA finally approved the sale of the Sixers to a group of investors, including Mr. & Mrs. Smith.

Will has always made known his love for Philly and this seems like a good look for both the Smiths and the city of Brotherly Love.  Check out some of the impressive new owners and their background, after the jump…

The group includes numerous investors, including Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. “West Philadelphia born and raised,” Will was born in Wynnefield and attended Overbrook High School.

Another Philly native, Adam Aron, a graduate of Abington High School, Harvard College and Harvard Business School, has been named the franchise’s CEO. Aron served as the chairman and chief executive officer of Vail Resorts until 2006 before forming and holding the same title for the consultancy, World Leisure Partners, Inc.

Always a great thing, to see people investing back into their hometown!  Now, if only we can get this NBA season on underway…*adjusts Dallas Mavericks jersey* (Yes, I look for any excuse to bring up my Mavericks *coughYourNBAChampionscough*)
