Wojnarowski: NBA owners worried about Sterling precedent
Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski joined the show from Spain to explain why Hawks owner Bruce Levenson will sell the Hawks.
Wojnarowski said that he doesn’t buy the “self-reporting” angle of this because the email that got Levenson in trouble was going to come out. Wojnarowski said that Levenson wrote the email in 2012, discussing how to get more white fans.
Wojnarowski said that NBA commissioner Adam Silver actually had less support privately during the Donald Sterling scandal than it seemed. Woj said teams publicly decried Sterling, but were legitimately worried about the precedent.
