Josh Harris, who is in Asia on business right now, has expressed an interest in buying the Philadelphia basketball team, the Seventy-Sixers. Philly fans, who are hoping for owner similar to Mark Cuban will be disappointed. I have talked to his partners at Apollo Global Investment Management. They say that he has no plans to lighten his workload. According to his partners, Harris works a 60 hour work week and travels 50% of the time.
I have also talked to David Blitzer's partners at Blackstone. They say that he is a stand up guy, but has not plans to return from London.
When Ed Snider was is in New York for the NHL meetings, he did not meet with Harris.
It is apparent to most Philly fans that Snider has always favored the Flyers over the Sixers. I checked the facebook page of one of his children that is closed to the public. They wrote, "Fan of the Flyers," but did not mention the Sixers.
