Bruce Levenson and Michael Gearon, two of the principal partners of Atlanta Spirit LLC, the parent company that owns the Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Thrashers and Philips Arena operating rights, have released the following statement regarding the rumored sale of the teams and arena:
“As has been shared publicly for more than a year, we are interested in finding minority investors and have engaged a firm to assist us in that effort. We have no plans to move either team, and remain committed to the Hawks, the Thrashers, Philips Arena and the city of Atlanta.”
There's cynicism, and there's downright lunacy. This? This isn't cynicism.
Right.....Everything that has every been said by ASG or someone in the organization has always been correct right. Always straight up with the fans.
No conspiracy. I do not believe in any conspiracy theories with anything. I am not saying what is true or not. Just that I expected nothing but the response we got from the ASG. I hope it is just investors, but would not be surprised if it was not. If they are looking to sell, I hope it is someone local.
