As he looked into purchasing an American Basketball Association franchise, the first person Devin Lee told as to his plans was his wife and former Lugoff-Elgin track and basketball player, Nikia Knox-Lee.Even with Nikia’s athletic background and her love of sports, she was caught off-guard and was a bit skeptical as to what she and her husband were getting themselves into with this new business venture. Her first reaction when Devin tried to explain to her what he was planning to do?“What are you talking about?” she said. “That was my first thought.“I’m still learning about it and that’s still my first question, ‘What are you talking about?’”As co-owner of the Palmetto State Rizers, Nikia has been on a crash course as to learning as much as she can about the ABA and what is entailed as to being owners of a professional franchise.
