A sports team is one of the ultimate celebrity purchases. It definitely says, "I made it!" Based purely on who owns them (currently), not on your personal team preference or what sport you like, which team do you pick? 

Drew Carey - Seattle Sounders (pro soccer) 
Russell Crowe - South Sydney Rabbitohs (rugby) 
Magic Johnson - Los Angeles Dodgers (pro baseball) 
Michael Jordan - Charlotte Hornets (pro basketball) 
Nick Lachey - Tacoma Rainiers (Triple-A baseball) 
David Letterman - Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing (IndyCar racing) 
Bil Maher - New York Mets (pro baseball) 
Tim McGraw - Nashville Kats (arena football) 
Bill Murray - St. Paul Saints, Fort Myers Miracle, Hudson Valley Renegades and Charleston Seadogs (all minor league baseball) 
Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of Kiss - Los Angeles Kiss (arena football) 
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith - Philadelphia 76ers (pro basketball) 
Justin Timberlake - Memphis Grizzlies (pro basketball) 
Usher - Cleveland Cavaliers (pro basketball) 
Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child - Chicago Sky (women's pro basketball) 

*Note - all people on the list were famous in the entertainment business before buying a team or teams, not BECAUSE they bought them. Also, I left all the Miami Dolphins celebrity "owners" off the list as a huge group of them share just a 1% stake.

Note: There was an error in the original version of the poll. However, the Jen deleted the original list because she ran into the maximum number of 999 list for an IMDb user and could not suggest additional poll suggestions. Unfortunately, the votes for the original version of the poll cannot be transferred.

Yeah, but a crap-load of those are suggestions I'm still hoping will drop eventually...

Hey everybody,

This poll had to be re-pushed because of an unfix-able error (I had deleted the original list and so had to remake it). If you would go re-vote on it that would be great. Thanks!
