hey seattle, you can have the bobcats.
You may be joking or serious but these guys are definitely serious about finding an NBA team to move to Seattle.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and two members of the Nordstrom family are part of the investor group seeking to bring a National Basketball Association franchise to Seattle, San Francisco hedge-fund manager Chris Hansen announced Wednesday.
According to Forbes ranking of the world's billionaires, Ballmer, 56, would be the league's richest owner. Forbes ranks Ballmer 44th (and 19th in the U.S.), with a fortune of $15.7 billion. It ranks Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen — currently the richest NBA team owner — at 48th globally with $14.2 billion.
