DENG right!" (2/2)
Trying to imagine how the Atlanta Hawks' controversy would have played out publicly if Luol Deng had signed there...
Got to figure that Spoelstra has to love Deng described as "a warrior" in the scouting report leaked about the Heat free-agent addition.
Seems like Deng comments originally came from someone in Bulls/Cavs front office, but we don't know who exactly. Is that coming next?
DF: "I apologize to Luol &...all that I have offended. I never should have uttered those offensive remarks & for that I apologize."
DF: "Luol [Deng] is a good man who I have known for many years & he has done a tremendous amount of good for his country & around the world"
Ferry could have got initial report with the "African" comment and then paraphrased and said "Deng could be considered a used car salesman"
The AJC and WSB Ch. 2 have jointly obtained the official Luol Deng background report. Does mention African comment. MORE TO COME.
Ferry making “African” reference re: Deng was obviously unnecessary to make his point. Was it meant to be a joke? Audio suggests not.
So Danny Ferry basically said Luol Deng is a phony and a locker room politician. So is half the league.
Sorry, that audio doesn't sound like a "scouting report" on Deng, more like an attack on his character based on his being "African."
Circula en internet el audio de Danny Ferry haciendo comentarios racista sobre Luol Deng. No lo ayuda para nada
Said before the NBA should investigate who made the comments about Deng. Hard to listen to that audio and say the words were not Ferry's.
