20x20hoopz In a series of tweets, #NBA Hall of Famer #MagicJohnson said he met with embattled #AtlantaHawks general manager #DannyFerry and said he respected and appreciated Ferry's apology for his comments about #LuolDeng & the #AfricanAmerican community. Ferry is currently on an indefinite leave of absence from the #Hawks after inflammatory remarks made about then free agent Luol Deng were made public in August. Ferry, in a conference call with the team's ownership group, said that Deng, a native of what is now South Sudan, "has a little #African in him." Ferry has issued a public apology and vowed to undergo sensitivity training and meet with local leaders, however Johnson was among those to call for the dismissal of Ferry as the team's general manager. In addition to being currently without an in-office general manager, the Hawks are also looking for a new majority owner after #BruceLevenson volunteered to sell his controlling stake in the franchise following his own separate episode involving unfortunate racial remarks.
With the ongoing upheaval in the team's front office, Johnson also tweeted that former Hawks Hall of Famer #DominiqueWilkins should be worth considering for an executive role. #NBA #BallisLife #Basketball #Racism #Racist #Atlanta #ATL #Georgia #JeffTeague #PaulMillsap

20x20hoopz #Hawks GM #DannyFerry takes indefinite leave of absence. The most intriguing part of this #AtlantaHawks story was never what happened, but what would happen next. That's why not even general manager Danny Ferry's indefinite leave of absence -- which followed Bruce Levenson's announcement that he would sell his stake in the team -- can be considered an end game or even a turning point. There needs to be simultaneous explanation from the #NBA about why it has not vigorously pursued and identified the original source of the disparaging remarks about #LuolDeng based on Deng's ethnicity and purged that person from the league. It's a slur, carrying with it the implication that Deng's birth in the #Sudan and childhood in #Egypt indelibly tainted him with a character flaw that no amount of adolescence in #Britain or #American collegiate education at #Duke could erase. The irony was that Levenson was one of the most outspoken owners about #Sterling's need to go after Sterling's conversations with V. Stiviano. When Levenson announced the sale of his stake in the team, he noted, "I have said repeatedly that the NBA should have zero tolerance for racism, and I strongly believe that to be true." The NBA has demonstrated even more tolerance -- and thus, less credibility in its campaign against racism -- by leaving the Hawks to their own devices and leaving the author of the most odious words unidentified and unpunished. #Basketball #BallisLife #Levenson #ATL #Atlanta #Georgia #JeffTeague #AlHorford #PaulMillsap #Prejudice #Racist #Racism 2w
