Sixers owner makes Forbes’ list of richest Americans

The Philadelphia Eagles franchise may be growing in value, but the story is not the same for co-owner Jeffrey Lurie.

Forbes released its list of 400 Richest People in America today, and among the notables who

did not make the cut was Lurie. The film producer, who is going through a divorce with his wife and team co-owner, Christina, was ranked No. 375 on last year’s list with a worth of $1.1 billion. Before you cry for Lurie, he is still a billionaire, but fell short of the $1.1 billion cutoff this year.

Meanwhile, hedge fund guru and 76ers owner Joshua Harris came in 298th on the list with an estimated $1.6 billion net worth. The 47-year-old Wharton School of Business grad saw his value grow from $1.45 billion a year ago.

Others on the list with Philadelphia-area ties are Urban Outfitters Inc. President and CEO Richard Hayne, at No. 328, with an estimated worth of $1.4 billion and Mary Alice Dorrance Malone, granddaughter of the Campbell Soup founder, at No. 190, with $2.4 billion in wealth.

Heading the list are the usual suspects: Microsofts’ Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Larry Ellison of Oracle, and brothers Charles and David Koch. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg came in at No. 10, with an estimated worth of $25 billion.
