    Ugh. So much for stans goal of a unified team vision. I don't see Thomas ceding power to anyone.

    Hmm...I wonder how much % is he being offered and how much does he need to put in?

    What is 1% worth?

    Some of us have invested some much time in this team the last 10 years that we need a piece of the team too. I am sure if we can all drop $100 a piece and go in as the PF group, we should be able to get a 1% share.

    Who on the forum, has their brokers license or is an attorney that can contact Platinum Equity and start the negotiations?

    The NBC Sports article is a winner as it still makes it a point to repeatedly take shots at Zeke. Journalistic integrity at its best.

    Worth $750M at least. 1% equals $7.5M. 100 of us would have to drop $75K a piece.

    If you're a .01% owner, you get 10% off popcorn on Wednesdays.

    Count me in for $200.

    The Stan Van Jeremy hire is proof Gores only wants the team as a tax write off

    If we could afford a quarter of 1% at that valuation and 200 of us put in we would just have to come up with $9,375.....which think I could come up with.....but I would at least want more return on my investment than popcorn discounts.

    Give me at least 2 regular season road game prime seating tickets for 2 and two home game luxury box tickets (for my family) at Auburn Hills for life.. (parking included). Two sets of playoff tickets for life and a Piston jersey, t shirt and cap every time or year they decided to update them.

    What about the chance to sit underneath the basket in a windbreaker or Members Only jacket?

    That would set you back $500,000,000.

    Let's see...1% of 750 milliom is 7.5mil.
    One-quarter of that is 1.875 million.
    Divide that by 200 forum members and you get...
    $9,375 from each member.

    Don't think Isiah would let us in...

    Giving out playoffs tickets for life might not set Gores back much....

    For $9,375, I'd better get a 5-button polo.

    5-button polo's are earned not given. That's one of the bedrock principles of Platinum Equity.
