The Denver Nuggets’ run to the NBA Finals continues an impressive stretch for Stan Kroenke-owned teams, which have won four championships since the beginning of 2022.
By the time the Nuggets tip off in the NBA Finals on June 1, Kroenke may have added another title: His Colorado Mammoth are vying for a second straight National Lacrosse League Cup in a three-game series against the Buffalo Bandits that begins Saturday.
Kroenke, who Forbes last month ranked as the 13th richest owner in sports with a net worth of $12.9 billion, saw his winning ways begin last February when the Los Angeles Rams won Super Bowl LVI at their home venue, SoFi Stadium. Last summer, the Colorado Avalanche brought home the Stanley Cup, while the Mammoth won the NLL Cup.
Even one of Kroenke’s esports teams, the Los Angeles Guerrillas, took home a major title in the Call of Duty League last year.
The recent success certainly boosted the bottom line for Kroenke’s teams — as seen with the Avalanche, who enjoyed the return of a season-ticket waiting list after their Stanley Cup victory.
The Nuggets ranked eighth in NBA attendance this year on the way to winning 53 games and earning the top seed in the Western Conference. Should they take home the NBA title, interest in the team and two-time MVP Nikola Jokić would only continue to grow.
Meanwhile, across the pond, Arsenal, which the 75-year-old purchased in 2011, is set to finish second in the Premier League and return to the Champions League next season.
