The former NBA star called the president a “sh**ty golfer.”
Obama made good use of his chance to to rebound during an interview on the Wisconsin radio station WJMR. The president was ask about Jordan’s decision to throw the cheap shot. It was the perfect opportunity for Obama to backdoor the former Chicago Bulls guard by saying … “Mike and I, we know each other, but I’ve never played golf with him,” Obama said … “Michael wasn’t very well informed about this. I think he might’ve just been trying to give Ahmad an extra ratings boost on his show.”
Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson has announced he’s selling the team and admits that he sent out an email which to many may seem racist.
Levenson has been upfront and honest about the content in the email he sent admits he sent the email to team execs back in 2012. In the email, he urged them to get more suburban white fans at games. He also included a detailed list which included all the issues he felt were a factor with the teams current fan base. His list included the following:
♦ It’s 70 pct black.
♦The cheerleaders are black.
♦ The music is hip hop.
♦At the bars it’s 90 pct black.
♦ There are few fathers and sons at the games.
♦The concerts [after games] are either hip hop or gospel.
Levenson added … “My theory is that the black crowd scared away the whites and there are simply not enough affluent black fans to build a significant season ticket base.” He also complained that he’s told team execs, “I want some white cheerleaders … I have even bitched that the kiss cam is too black.”
According to sources…NBA Commissioner Adam Silver received notification and a copy of the email from Levenson in July. Approximately two months after Donald Sterling was banned. He immediately informed the league of his intent to sell the team.
Levenson apologized to fans in a statement, saying … “If you’re angry about what I wrote, you should be. I’m angry at myself too.”
