Arison, who is also CEO of the Carnival cruise operator and bought the Heat in 2010, was born in Tel Aviv in 1949. His estimated wealth is $5.7 billion, making him the 211th-richest person in the world, according to Forbes. He is a full billion dollars richer than a year ago, when Forbes ranked him at 223rd in the world with a fortune of $4.7 billion.

LeBron James scored 37 points in Game 7 to lead Arison’s Heat to the third championship in franchise history.
