Paul Allen Rumors

A private and introverted man, Allen has almost always made a short speech to his team after a season. But few could recall one ever rivaling Wednesday’s, both in length and emotion. “What he said came from the heart,’’ Damian Lillard said. “You could hear it in his voice. He really meant what he was saying. He saw that we left it out there, and he saw how bad we wanted it. And he felt it, he felt what we did.’’
His Microsoft compatriot, Paul Allen, owns both the Seattle Seahawks and the Portland Trail Blazers and is worth $17.5 billion (40th overall in Forbes rankings). Rounding out the top five are Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross at $12 billion (80th), Los Angeles Kings owner Phil Anschutz at $9.7 billion (108th) and Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche and Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke at $7.7 billion (148th). Kroenke’s wife Ann is worth $4.5 billion, according to Forbes.
