Prior to teaming up with Atlanta Spirit, he tried to buy the Celtics twice (pulled out of the bidding the first time [1983] and was outbid later on when the team was back on the market). He was also part of one the ownership groups that was vying for the Charlotte expansion franchise that became the Bobcats but was outbid there as well. He also failed to buy into the Patriots as well.

It's a four year old article, but it gives some background on Steve Belkin and also covers some of the controversies involving him from the early days of Atlanta Spirit into the Joe Jackson matter that triggered this long soap opera.
