SALT LAKE CITY -- When Larry H. Miller died in 2009, he left behind an empire that includes the Utah Jazz, 60 auto dealerships in seven western states, retail stores, a TV station, Vivint Smart Home Arena, movie theaters and more.

Larry's widow, Gail, now holds the reins of the entire enterprise, and she recently sat down with Bob Evans to answer 3 Questions.

  1. How much did luck play a role in building this empire?
  2. Forbes Magazine says that almost two-thirds of the world's billionaires started from scratch. Now, you yourself started from very modest means: What is it about poverty that creates billionaires?
  3. Now that the Legacy Trust is in place, are the Utah Jazz going to bring home an NBA Championship?
