The Jay-Z-Mikhail Prokhorov combination seems poised to bring Carmelo Anthony to the Garden State.
There may soon be another rapper-billionaire combination looking to emulate such success. Snoop Dogg reached out to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday night via Twitter about potentially purchasing a team together.
"Ayo sumbody tell Zuckerberg to holler at me. He n I need go buy a pro sports team tgether," Dogg said.
The two even started suggesting team names.
"It's official. @snoopdogg is my hero. Snoop, what will the team name be? The Mighty Nerds? Save me some box seats!" Zuckerberg joked.
Snoop is a renowned fan of all Los Angeles sports teams, particularly USC football. Unfortunately, you can't buy college teams — not even USC.
It remains to be seen whether Dogg and Zuckerberg actually move forward with the venture.
