    Well, FWIW, Pera may be the second best player of all the owners.

    Just realized this guy works out at my gym. I recognize his ugly ass hitch of a jump shot. There is no way he can beat MJ.

    LOL MJ beat Michael Kidd-Gilchrist one on one last year, I don't think this guy will score.

    He may be, but that's not saying much. He sucks and Jordan would destroy him, the guy guarding him only let him go by him because he was the boss. Although it is pretty impressive that he is a billionaire at 35.

    Let's give the guy his props. His jump shot is pretty wet considering he's a billionaire. How many billionaires do you know could make the shots he made? I dont know any! Infact I don't know any Billionaires period :(

    I was about to say dude looks like his mom taught him how to shoot.

    This seems like a douchebag idea to me.

    Well, according to Forbes there were 29 under 40 earlier this year. Of those, 11 were 35 or under. Pera wasn't one of them at the time.

    Well keep in mind I didn't know who he was prior to seeing this thread. He works out with the resident basketball trainer and he looks hella young for his age like he is in college or high school. He's bigger and better than your average gym rat but now I know the only reason he's working with a trainer is because he's a billionaire because there's no way he'd even make a college team.
