What Pro Sports Teams Could You Buy After Winning The Powerball?
The Powerball lottery frequently gets into the hundreds of millions and at the hypothetical number of $425 million, that's enough to buy your very own pro sports team! What teams would be in your 'league' across the board? Here's what the going prices are for all pro teams (as of 2012) and how they measure up to our fake jackpot...
There isn't a single NASCAR Team that's off limits as they're all within your budget, the top team being Hendrick Motorsports at $350m.
You can afford all but eight NBA teams, which are the Lakers, Knicks, Bulls, Mavs, Celtics, Heat, Rockets, and the Warriors in that order. The Lakers go for $900m while the Warriors are only $25m too expensive, HA!
Only seven MLB baseball teams are in your range and they are the Reds, Blue Jays, Indians, Royals, Pirates, Rays, and the A's. Your beloved Yankees are at the top of the list unreachable list at nearly $2 billion, and the Red Sox are $1 billion to own.
You could afford all but the top three NHL teams which are the Maple Leafs ($521m), Rangers ($507m) and Canadiens ($445m). Now if they would only play and earn those values!!
Now for the bad news for all of you football fans... Every single NFL team is out of your reach with the least expensive being the Jaguars at $770 million.. Leading the pack is of course the Dallas Cowboys at $2.1 billion
