Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who occasionally writes for Time, came to the defense of Bruce Levenson in his recent column.

"Atlanta Hawks controlling owner Bruce Levenson is no Donald Sterling. Nor is his email racist. In fact, his worst crime is misguided white guilt," wrote Abdul-Jabbar. "Business people should have the right to wonder how to appeal to diverse groups in order to increase business. They should even be able to make minor insensitive gaffs if there is no obvious animosity or racist intent. This is a business email that is pretty harmless in terms of insulting anyone — and pretty fascinating in terms of seeing how the business of running a team really works." Abdul-Jabbar's take on the situation is unique, and you can click the link below if you'd like to read his entire column.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced on Sunday that Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson will sell his controlling interest in the team after self-reporting a racist email that was sent out in 2012.

There was a meeting in New York late last week amongst NBA owners, and Levenson agreed to sell according to Silver. In his email, Levenson expresses racial stereotypes as to why the organization was struggling to attract white fans. This is not a good look for the NBA, but at least Levenson will not go the same route as Donald Sterling, and this should be a quick transition. Stay tuned.

Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer was arrested and charged with DUI on Thursday morning.

According to the report, a trooper stopped Budenholzer for having no tail lights, detected the smell of alcohol, then Budenholzer attempted three of the four field sobriety tests. Budenholzer refused a breath test, a State Patrol spokesman said. He was charged with DUI and was released on $1,524 bond at 3:45 a.m. Thursday. More details are to come, but this is a terrible way to start his coaching career after being hired just two months ago.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has added former Lakers assistant Darvin Ham to his coaching staff.

Ham, who played for the Hawks in 2002-03, was a head coach in the D-League before joining the Lakers' staff. It shouldn't be overlooked that Ham also worked with Dwight Howard last season, and the Hawks are reportedly eager to lure Dwight to Atlanta as a free agent this summer.

The Hawks have hired Quin Snyder as an assistant coach.

The 76ers were rumored to have some interest in hiring Snyder, a former Sixers assistant who coached CSKA Moscow last season. He has been a head coach in the NCAA and the D-League, in addition to assistant jobs with the Clippers and Lakers, and his diverse experience should be a welcome addition to Mike Budenholzer's staff.
