He simply threw his keys onto the table, and gave his shares in this gem of a franchise to the 2 lightweights who currently run the team. Somehow, they have managed to keep this house of cards afloat for the past 4 years, but you have to think that something is going to have to give at some point in the near future.

I believe the reports at the time listed the transfer value as $200 MM, inclusive of some land around the arena, and the arena rights.
