Will Smith and Jada Smith part owners of 76ers

The Fresh Prince is returning to his roots. As Will Smith so famously rapped in the shows theme song, “in West Philadelphia I was born and raised,” the actor is now part owner of the Philadelphia 76ers. 

 Smith and his wife Jada are apart of a group led by Joshua Harris, who purchased the team from Comcast-Spectacor.

The couple and owners’ first order of business? Slashing ticket prices! At yesterday’s press conference, team CEO Adam Aron said,“I’m announcing today that going forward, we are slashing – and I mean slashing – ticket prices on individual game tickets on just under 9,000 seats at the Wells Fargo Center for each and every Sixers home game.”

Forbes valued the 76ers at $330 million, which is 17th in the league. The couple have a combined networth of $200 million. Despite the NBA lockout, Will Smith has saved the world on multiple occasions, so finding a CBA agreement should be no problem!
