Clippers fans look for a hand from the crowd to buy NBA team

Philip Michaels | May 12, 2014
Thanks to crowdfunding, we've been able to back smartwatch makers, help rock legends fund the high-resolution audio player of their dreams, and even bring a long-canceled TV show to the silver screen. So why not use the deep pockets of the crowd to buy up a share of your very own sports franchise?

Nguyen is realistic about the challenges, but remains optimistic that the crowd will rally at a chance to turn a basketball team into a community-owned asset. "It's a monumental task," he conceded. "But bigger things have been done in the world."

At any rate, there's little risk to you, the would-be co-owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. If the bid doesn't go through, you won't have to part with any of your money. And should the Crowdtilt campaign beat the odds? Well, you've not only made history, you've now got an in with the likes of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.
