*Lisa Leslie is a businesswoman if you didn’t know.
Although she’s retired from the court, she hasn’t left the game. The former LA Sparks star, along with former NBC executive, Paula Madison (pictured below), is part owner of the WNBA team.
The official announcement was made at a game Saturday night at the Staple Center.
“With my investment in the Sparks, my basketball career has truly come full circle,” said Leslie, who spent 15 years playing on the team. “After spending over a decade playing with the Sparks and then the last two seasons as both a fan and team broadcaster, I couldn’t be happier to rejoin the organization formally as a business partner and team ambassador,” she continued. “I look forward to being as asset to the Sparks in the areas of marketing and community outreach.”
