Athletes make enough money to do just about anything. Although many athletes are still involved in their sport in some way, not enough of them own teams. It is logical for an athlete to have a stake in a team that made them rich. These athletes are some of the richest around and should use that wealth to buy a team.

People don’t much like Rodriguez, but it shouldn’t stop him from owning a team. People don’t like Donald Sterling or Mark Davis, and they both have had ownership of teams. It may be best for Rodriguez to take over ownership of a minor league team for now. Net Worth: $ 300 Million

Earnhardt Jr. already owns a race team in JR Motorsports. Although racing is where he makes his money, he is very passionate about the Washington Redskins and the Charlotte Hornets. It is easy to see Earnhardt Jr. owning a piece of either team not only because of his passion but because of his bank account. Net Worth: $ 300 Million

Beckham can do anything well. He can play soccer, he can model, he can be a famous celebrity face and he can be married to a Spice Girl. Beckham would make a great soccer team owner. He is, by far, the most famous soccer player of all time. His presence alone would be a financial cash cow for any team. Net Worth: $ 350 Million

Jeter recently retired from baseball, and the logical next step would be to own a team. Jeter is one of the most loved players in the history of baseball, and with the money he’s made from it, it only makes sense to have at least some share in the New York Yankees. Net Worth: $ 185 Million

It was reported that Mayweather was highly interested in owning the Clippers when they were up for sale; too bad he was just a few billion short. Mayweather is one of the most recognizable people in sports, so him owning a team in any sport is plausible. Net Worth: $ 295 Million

Foreman is the grill king. He’s made a name in something other than boxing, and he could take his earnings to own a piece of any team in any sport. Obviously Foreman has no problem swimming in uncharted waters, so if he threw his money toward ownership of a sports team, it wouldn’t surprise anyone. Net Worth: $ 250 Million

Bryant is a Laker through and through. When he retires he should definitely have some ownership in the team. He is one of the greatest Lakers in history who's done so much for the team, so owning a piece of it seems right. Net Worth: $ 260 Million

3. LeBron James

James is one of the most celebrated basketball players of all time, so he should definitely consider owning a team upon retirement. The Cleveland Cavaliers would make the most sense. Plus, Dan Gilbert owes him after the infamous letter he wrote in 2010. Net Worth: $ 270 Million

2. Wayne Gretzky

Gretzky is arguably the best hockey player in history. Gretzky actually had a share in the Phoenix Coyotes in 2000 but relinquished his ownership share in 2009 when the franchise went bankrupt. Even if Gretzky can only afford a minor share, it makes sense to have a stake in one of the NHL teams he played for. Net Worth: $ 200 Million

Woods catapulted the sport of golf to mainstream. He is one of the most marketable athletes of all time, and he could own any team without needing any partners. He is consistently ranked among the top of the richest athletes every year. Net Worth: $ 550 Million
