InsideHoops.Com is apparently serious about putting in a bid to buy the New Jersey Nets franchise, and is offering their visitors a chance to own a stake in the team as well (of course, you need to have at least ten thousand bucks readily available) ...



"InsideHoops.com is interested in helping to organize a purchase of
the New Jersey Nets and has now spoken to two large potential investors to discuss
the possibilities. In addition, InsideHoops.com is inviting fans to buy in and
own a sliver of the team
. Whether you or your company can spare as little
as $10,000 or millions, contact us. Imagine an NBA
team owned by hundreds or thousands of caring people interested in a profit who
also love basketball, with a fairly elected board of directors led by experienced
majority investors calling the shots. That's our goal - professional ownership
with caring fans as co-owners. Spread the word. Time is short. After five days
of calling attention to this, InsideHoops.com visitors have pledged around $600,000
and like the idea of owning a sliver of the team." InsideHoops.com

Not really sure how feasible this whole venture is, but I give 'em props for trying ...

Somehow, a team owned by 12,000 people seems like a catastrophe outside of a stock-type atmosphere...

This has 'scam' written all over it. No way the NBA approves a few thousand people on a website as an ownership group.

Gettin' some mainstream exposure as well ...



COOL
Only $299,830,000 to go

Want to own your own pro sports franchise? Want to fire Byron Scott or trade Kenyon Martin?

Now's your chance.

Jeff Lenchiner, editor of InsideHoops.com, a popular Web site devoted to NBA news and rumors, is proposing that his readers and InsideHoops.com purchase the New Jersey Nets.

He's serious.

On his site, Lenchiner asks anybody who can afford $10,000 or more to contact him about purchasing a piece of the team. He estimates it will cost about $300 million to make a deal.

On the first day Lenchiner posted his proposal on-line, he had pledges for $170,000.

Good googily moogily! The rest of those photos are SWEET! I've dated a girl who was 6ft5 once. Being 6ft2 made it not quite so bad. I dated a girl in high school that was 6ft, and ended up being 6ft9.
