Becoming New Owners Of Atlanta Dream
DREAM SCENARIO: ESPN.com's Mechelle Voepel wrote it "certainly sounds like this is exactly the type of owner the WNBA needs -- the independent-of-the-NBA owner who has a passion for the product but is also a bottom-line business person." These are the "people who are committed to the concept that women's basketball is a viable entertainment option, but really do understand how to run a business." Similar to Mystics President & Managing Partner Sheila Johnson, Sparks co-Owners Kathy Goodman and Carla Christofferson, and Storm Owner Force 10 Hoops, Betty "believes in all the feel-good reasons for supporting the WNBA." But it is "not just about that." She also "truly believes it's a smart investment" (ESPN.com, 10/29).
