    Another NBA owner out

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/11...-months-making

    I guess Mark Cuban was right, the owners should have kept their mouths shut - because now everyone is going threw your dirty laundry now. Guessing we will see a few more of these over the next year or so.

    The question is, will anyone in Atlanta notice? Attendance is awful there and has been for a long time even when they had a competitive team. Regardless of the market size I wonder if the franchise might get relocated.

    The Hawks still get more fans per game and a higher % of capacity filled than the Milwaukee Bucks, who deserve to be sent to Seattle yesterday.

    Maybe I don't "get it" but how is determining what your customers want that bad? Companies do market research every day. If your average customer is a 40 year old white manager wouldn't it be natural to cater to what they want or like?

    I'm sure Banana Republic has a different marketing strategy than FUBU based on some of these same things.

    I feel like this guy did it on purpose. He tried to sell his share a couple years ago and no one would buy it. Now he gave another excuse to sell his share and it is probably guaranteed to get purchased this time around.

    But we live in a PC world now and everything you say might hurt someone's feelings. Not sure how this is much different from Donald, where is the NBA with the life time ban? You have a collection of 30 NBA owners, who majority of them are older white men............I am guessing you can find a skeleton or two in each of their closets.
