Danny Ferry's had a rough stretch since the Luol Deng situation came to light. He visited with Magic Johnson who tweeted out some good words for Ferry:
|If you shop Amazon, please start here and help DBR|
Just had a heart to heart meeting w/ Hawks GM Danny Ferry! He apologized for his comments about Luol Deng & the African American community."
"In our meeting Danny Ferry’s apology was very sincere."
"I have a lot of respect for Danny because he called and wanted to talk about how his comments offended so many people."
"After our long meeting, I think he deserves a second chance whether it is with the Hawks or another team."
He might have added that it would be virtually impossible for a racist to hide in the basketball world for long. If Danny Ferry were a racist, he would have been found out a long time ago.
Really, if he were, he would most likely have given up basketball because that's probably the last world a seriously racist white person would choose for his life's work.
It would also be nice if people quit saying they were Ferry's comments. He was quoting someone! Why is that so hard to put in the story?
