With the recent release of his new under-garment line with NEFF, NBA's 2014 MVP, Kevin Durant is aspiring to go into the business of sports and franchise; when it comes to ownership of teams and using the plays he learned on the court to win big.
During an interview with ESPN, Durant expressed his vision of owning an NFL team, preferably the Washington Redskins from his hometown and his involvement as a business man in sports.
“My first priority would be the Washington Redskins, even if it was just a small percentage,” Durant stated. “I just want to get involved. Growing up five minutes away from the stadium and always being a fan, I have a Redskins tattoo on my forearm. So I feel part of the team so much, so to be an owner and all the way entrenched with the team would be cool.”
According to Forbes, the Washinton Redskins' buy out would be close to $2.8 billion dollars and are the third highest profitable sports team in the NFL. Per business analytics, Kevin's goal is an attainable one due to all his various contracts from: playing as a basketball player, endorsements with Nike, fast food chains such as Sonic, beverage brands and a slew of royalties. There's also a salary cap from the NBA which would put a $200 million dollar contract on the table for Durant. With the right investors, lawyers and etc., Kevin Durant can go from a basketball player to being the owner of the Redskins.
