Almost 20 years later, Mashburn attempted to set the record straight about the Kidd-Jackson-Braxton love triangle. “She definitely cost me relationships with Jimmy Jackson and Jason Kidd,” Mashburn said on KRLD-FM. “I necessarily wouldn’t even put it on here. I think at that time Jimmy and Jason were going through their own particular issues. From my understanding, being in the locker room, there was no truth to the Toni Braxton part. She played a part in it from the standpoint that she had an album out at the time, or was about to release it, called ‘Secrets.’ She went on the Dallas airwaves and said she doesn’t kiss and tell. She’s a beautiful women, but I think it did cost us because of egos, being so young, not having a lot of direction and leadership on the Dallas Mavericks at that particular time. There were some leadership changes with the ownership and coaching changes. It cost us being a pretty darn good basketball team for years to come.
Former NBA player Jamal Mashburn is teaming up with veteran ad man Jonathan Sackett to open a new advertising agency in Chicago. The duo hope to take advantage of marketers’ growing interest in smaller agencies that can more nimbly respond to changes underway in the media landscape, such as the rise of social media. “Many of the big agencies can’t turn around on a dime,” said Mr. Sackett, who will be chief executive of Mashburn Sackett. Mr. Sackett, 44-years old, was most recently a senior partner at WPP’s Ogilvy & Mather.
Mr. Mashburn has reinvented himself again. He has teamed up with another pro athlete–National Football League offensive tackle Winston Justice–to launch a venture capital firm for investing in high-tech startups. Justice Mashburn Capital Partners, as the Florida-based firm is called, has already made its first investment. The firm participated in a funding round for LevelEleven Inc., a software company bringing game mechanics to the sales departments at large corporations. The firm has no limited partners outside of Messrs. Mashburn and Justice, who put up their own money to raise a formal investment fund.
Former NBA basketball player Jamal Mashburn has become an investor in Spokane-based FairBridge Hotels International. The company, formed three years ago in Spokane, has developed a network of 24 branded hotels in the United States and Canada. Among other services, the company arranges loans for independent hotel owners to improve their buildings and for rebranding. The amount of Mashburn’s investment was not disclosed, but the company said in a news release that he would join its board of directors. Mashburn, a resident of Miami, has been an active business owner and investor since retiring from the NBA in 2006 due to injuries.
