Winners and Losers: A Look at the Success Rate of Celeb-Owned Sports Teams

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith

Team: Philadelphia 76ers
Years of Ownership: 2011-present
Championships Won and Playoff Appearances: Zero championships / One playoff appearance

"Born and raised" in West Philly, the Fresh Prince made a hometown move when he recently invested in the 76ers with wife Jada Pinkett Smith. We hear he and his partners are off to a good start as one of their first moves at the helm was to slash ticket prices. Pay attention everyone else that owns a sports franchise, cut prices to get in good with the fans and put butts in the seats. Another bonus could be Willow performing at half-time. That'd be another way to make money by keeping it all in the family. Maybe she can sit on Bynum's shoulders and they can do a duet. Now we're just spit-balling.
