But two of the city’s richest went largely unnoticed during the championship game. Media maven David Geffen (net worth $5 billion) sat courtside to the right of the Laker’s bench. Platinum Equity’s Tom Gores (net worth $2.2 billion) sat so close to the Celtics it seemed that Doc Rivers blocked his view during half the game. (Check out my profile on Tom Gores).
