The First NBA Hispanic Owner

The NBA has just increased its Hispanic Ownership by 1. Congrats to Alex Meruelo as the new owner of the Atlanta Hawks. This is his direct quote on ownership:

I wasn’t quite fast enough, tall enough or quick enough, so those dreams didn’t quite get me that far,” he said. “But those dreams brought me the burning desire to be involved in the NBA. It’s something I’ve always wanted my entire life to somehow be a part of the NBA.

Meruelo said “it’s a privilege and I’m honored” to be the league’s first Hispanic majority owner

At least we have one feel good story during this lockout. Lets hope that Alex will be able to spend some money to enable the Hawks to remain competitive.
