Several weeks ago, we posted the news that Tennessee native Justin Timberlake was to become part-owner of the Memphis Grizzlies. Not quite Jay-Z and the Nets, but ok. But of course, the aforementioned isn’t the first time a celebrity became part-owner of a sports team.
But how about an active player owning part of a team from another sport? You don’t hear that every day. Either way, it appears as if Peyton Manning (who played college ball at Tennessee) is doing just that by coming a new minority owner of the NBA’s Memphis Grizzlies.
