From City & State: the Tsais, who own the Brooklyn Nets, at #27 among NYC's "Asian 100"

From City & State NY, 5/2/22, The 2022 Power of Diversity: Asian 100, subtitled "New York’s Asian American trailblazers":
27. Joseph Tsai & Clara Wu Tsai
Co-Owners, Brooklyn Nets

This power couple found massive success in retail – Joseph Tsai as co-founder of Chinese retail giant Alibaba Group, Clara Wu Tsai as former Hong Kong general manager of Taobao, the largest online shopping site in China. They share both ownership of the Brooklyn Nets – which boasts superstars such as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving on its roster – and a commitment to philanthropy, dedicating $50 million to their Social Justice Fund, which works toward racial justice and economic mobility for minority communities in Brooklyn.

Hmm, no mention of the turmoil regarding the Nets or Joe Tsai's reflexive support for the Chinese regime. 

But it would be worth mentioning that they also own the New York Liberty, which, with lower ticket prices and a potentially broad fan base, has room to grow (as indicated by the first game this season).
