Dan Silna and his brother Ozzie made mega millions in a deal they made as their Spirits of St. Louis ABA franchise was left out of the NBA merger in 1976. The philanthropist talks about his ownership days, the deal and his passions including a panel discussion called "Lessons From the Munich Olympics" moderated by his former play-by-play man Bob Costas.

Silna rarely gives interviews, but he opens up in this SportsJam segment especially when talking about his family and his days as an owner in the ABA.
