He wrote on social media posts he was shifting from part-owner of the teams run by Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment and back to life-long fan. Rubin was part of the ownership group when it purchased the 76ers in 2011 for $290 million. The team was valued at $2.45 billion by Forbes last year. Rubin owns a 10% share.
