Well, it won’t take much time to guess what kind of shoes Team Liquid will be wearing now that Michael Jordan owns a piece of the team. About 24 hours after rapper Drake plunked down some cash on 100 Thieves, the former NBA star joined other team co-owners including Peter Gruber of the Golden State Warriors, Jeff Vinik of the Tampa Bay Lightning, and Ted Leonsis of the Washington Capitals to buy into the team for $26 million.
If you’re not familiar with Team Liquid, now is a good time to get educated as the team is involved with basically every esports venture on the planet with both individuals and groups representing in League of Legends, Dota 2, Fortnite, CS:GO, Street Fighter, PUBG, FIFA, and more. Will having Jordan and company involved with the team do anything for them that they’re not already doing themselves? Only time will tell. But there is one thing that can be argued, and that is Jordan’s involvement certainly has put them in the public eye a lot faster than any championship they’ve won to date. As of the moment we’re writing this, the story is already one of the biggest of the day for most sports and gaming websites. That’s a hell of a way to get your team some attention.
