Best Local Boy Gone Bad

Howard Schultz

Howard Schultz was born and raised in Brooklyn, so technically he's not a "local boy." Nevertheless, as the chairman and CEO of Starbucks and the former owner of the Sonics, Schultz will forever be associated with Seattle. He is ours whether we want him or not. Which is unfortunate, because if real Seattleites had their druthers they'd ship the mealy-mouthed billionaire off to Oklahoma City, as he did with our beloved basketball team. KEEGAN HAMILTON
