Stan Kroenke wants to buy all of the St. Louis Rams: What's that mean for the Nuggets and Avalanche?
Just because Stan wants the Rams doesn't mean he's through with Denver.
Stan Kroenke owns 40 percent of the St. Louis Rams football team -- and he reportedly is interested in purchasing the remaining 60 percent.
How might such a buy impact Kroenke's Denver sports franchises -- the Denver Nuggets and the Colorado Avalanche? Kroenke isn't getting into specifics, but his company, Kroenke Sports Enterprises, has released a statement confirming its commitment to its Denver properties and mentioning the Nuggets and the Avalanche by name.
The implication: Just because he may be spending millions on the Rams doesn't mean he's abandoning Colorado.
