Can anyone really argue? The hands-on billionaire was at the forefront of one of the most astonishing professional-sports turnarounds in history, seeing his Dallas Mavericks morph into one of the NBA’s most feared teams. A no nonsense, win-at-all-costs owner is exactly what the Cubs have been missing for, oh, a century, and he could be the one man in the world who could bring the North Side a championship. As a bonus? He was spotted at Wrigley just a few weeks ago taking in a game. Not in an elitist club box either. In the bleachers.
