I believe it's an investment firm, like Raymond James, another mysteriously named group that bought the naming rights to a stadium.
"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde
You hit it right on the head. An investment firm. It was a little funny honestly to watch the football game right after they bought the naming rights (playoffs i think). They put a camera on the ceo (i believe) and he was almost sitting up in the nose bleeds.
Correct me if i'm wrong, but the list was for rumored traded players not free agents? Either way, they should keep Pau Gasol, but I'm not sure they'd be stupid if they were going to get someone even better, say Kobe, out of the deal.
