Aaron Rodgers Becomes Minority Owner Of The Milwaukee Bucks

5239846

During last night’s Celtics/Bucks Game 3 there was a somewhat important announcement between quarters 1 and 2. That announcement? Aaron Rodgers is a minority owner of the Milwaukee Bucks.

It makes a lot of sense. Mostly, because Rodgers has a bunch of money and this is simply a smart investment. The Bucks are moving into a new arena next year. They have one of the youngest stars in the league in Giannis, which means a decent amount of revenue for the foreseeable future. Not to mention the growth of the NBA in general, which, again, leads to more money.

Rodgers is a well-known basketball fan as he was always around the Wisconsin basketball team, especially during the Final Four runs with Kaminsky and Decker group. Rodgers has said multiple times that his favorite NBA player was Vlade Divac, which actually makes him cooler in my book. I absolutely loved the Kings teams in the early 2000s with Bibby, Webber, Peja, Christie and Divac. Mostly because Divac was one of the most hilarious players in NBA history with his flopping all while actually being a really skilled player.

Rodgers isn’t the first athlete to be a minority owner, joining the likes of LeBron James (Liverpool) and Steve Nash (Vancouver Whitecaps and Real Mallorca). Other celebrities such as Will Smith, Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Lopez and Jay-Z have been part of an ownership group before as well.

The current Bucks ownership group bought the team from Herb Kohl in 2014 for $550 million.
