#12 Cargument of the Month – Which Sports Team Would You Want To Own 4

This should be a fun one.  If you could own any team in any league who would it be?  This one is tough for me, there are 7 teams I would want to own (1) the Pittsburgh Steelers, (2) the Pittsburgh Penguins, (3) the New York Yankees, (4) the Pittsburgh Pirates, (5) the Utah Jazz, and  (6) the Chicago Cubs, and (7) the New Orleans Hornets.  The Steelers are my favorite NFL team, but they are already run so well and have arguably the best ownership in the league, I would love to continue that tradition as an owner, but since they are already doing so well I shall pass.  The New York Yankees are my favorite baseball team and if you owned them they would make you lots of cash.  My second favorite MLB team is the Pittsburgh Pirates and I would love to take over that team and help provide a winning tradition.  I would just like to own the Cubs because they would make you a ton of money and it would be cool to be the owner who ended the billy goat curse.  The Pittsburgh Penguins are my favorite NHL team (see a trend?) but I would pass on owning a hockey team.  I love the Utah Jazz, they are my favorite NBA team, when I was growing up I wanted to be John Stockton, you will not find a bigger John Stockton fan out there than #12, (part of the reason my identity on here is #12 is because of Jon Stockton).   I would want to own the New Orleans Hornets, not because I now live in New Orleans, but so I could move the team to Pittsburgh, they need an NBA team for me to root for.

However, if I had to pick one team to own it would be the Utah Jazz.  I’ve seen the Steelers win multiple championships, the same with the Yankees, and a few years ago I got to see the Penguins win, but never the Jazz.  I would want to own the Utah Jazz and I would bring them the championship Salt Lake City has been dying for.  I wouldn’t have let Mes Matthews go just to save a few bucks and that also goes for Carlos Boozer, Kyle Korver, Ronnie Brewer, and Eric Maynor.  I also would’ve drafted differently.  I want to own the Utah Jazz and lead them to hanging a championship banner by the rafters.  Maybe I’ll go play the mega millions, $640 millions might be enough to buy them, but probably not after taxes.

Anyways, if you could own and sports team, who would it be?

    TheLongTalk’s Take:

    Love the New Orleans to Pittsburgh idea, awesome. Why should New York City get two NBA teams, why should LA have two teams and California 4, why should Texas and Florida get multiple teams… and PA only gets one.

    If TheLongTalk could own any team it’d be the New York Knicks. TLT doesn’t care about baseball, doesn’t know enough to run a football team, and can’t spell hookey (see what I did there, that’s funny stuff) So that leaves NBA teams.

    The Knicks are old, they’re at the center of a large market, they make money hand-over-fist even when the suck balls (basketballs, get your mind out of the gutter) and here’s the best part.


    The Knicks have been so bad for so long, that this season seems like a GREAT one and they’re still only 1 game over .500. They’ve lost almost as many games as they’ve won and people are actually wondering if they might pull a First Round upset. People really want to love this team.

    Just think what it might be like if they were any good.

    Wow, I thought you HATED the Knicks, and I mean HATED them. I’m surprised by this but you’re right. I find it interesting that both of picked NBA teams, the league that makes more money only than hockey. Interesting.

    I’d also be interested in owning the Lakers, only so I could move them back to Minnesota where, you know, there are actually lakes.

    TheLongTalk’s problem with the Knick’s has always been their personnel more then their franchise.

    Not really a Starbury fan, or Sprewell, or Ewing. Thomas was a terrible GM and Dolan seems like he’s in way over his head.

    Not sure how I missed this post.

    Hmmm…that is a tough one.

    If I had to pick a baseball team, it would be the Braves. I’ve been a fan since I was a kid.

    Football would be the Steelers.

    And NBA? While I wouldn’t mind owning my childhood favorite Bulls, I think right now I’d go for the Heat. I mean, who wouldn’t want their favorite player playing for them, right? :)
