Internet Reacts to Dwyane Wade Joining Utah Jazz Ownership Group

The Utah Jazz announced that former Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade will join its ownership group. The small ownership group has previously consisted of tech leaders, including legendary investor and Accel partner Ryan Sweeney, and Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes in addition to the Miller family. Today they announced the addition of Wade.

“Dwyane is not only a basketball legend, he is also a great leader, businessman, and human being,” said Ryan Smith, NBA governor of the Utah Jazz. “As we continue to build on the incredible legacy of the Utah Jazz franchise, we are excited to add Dwyane’s experience and expertise to the equation. Utah is an amazing place and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the future of the franchise and the future of this state. Dwyane’s influence will be important to both.”

Twitter reacted to the breaking news:


Always weird to see a guy own a team he has very little to do with. In a perfect world Michael Jordan would own the Bulls, and Wade would own the Heat.

That never ends up happening though.
