Josh Kroenke played hoops for Mizzou from '99 to '03.
Call it a late birthday gift. Exactly one month after turning 29, Josh Kroenke was tapped yesterday as heir apparent to take over the Denver NBA franchise owned by his father, Stan Kroenke.
The move comes as the elder Kroenke attempts to divest his interest in the Denver Nuggets (and the NHL franchise Colorado Avalanche) in order to meet NFL guidelines for his purchase of the St. Louis Rams.
"Our son Josh has been involved with many of our organizations for several years and that family continuity remains a priority. My family looks forward to owning the Rams, Nuggets and Avalanche for years to come while being compliant with all stipulations set by the NFL. Our family remains committed to fans in St. Louis and Denver."
