Former Hawks star, and Atlanta native Shareef Abdur-Rahim responded to Danny Ferry and Bruce Levenson's racist remarks in an open letter.
Here's a snippet from the letter: "I recall countless games blacked out in the 1980s and early 90s due to low attendance in the arena. Neither African-American cheerleaders nor the African-American community were the cause of low attendance back then and they are not the cause now... The notion that Africans are 'two-faced liars and cheats' is offensive. I am proud I have a lot of African in me and know such traits do not carry negative attributes."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim has been named as the general manager of the Reno Bighorns.

He was a player personnel director for the Kings and will call the shots for their D-League affiliate. Abdur-Rahim was named as an assistant back in 2008 after retiring from the NBA one month before. He played in 12 seasons and made the All-Star team in the 2001-02 season.

The Kings have named recently retired PF Shareef Abdur-Rahim an assistant coach.

SAR made it through 12 seasons before his knee forced him out, and while his game will be missed on the court, we won't miss having to type out his hyphenated last name much going forward.

Kings' forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim officially retired after 12 seasons on Monday.

SAR was unable to come back from knee surgeries and his absence will help to alleviate a logjam at power forward in Sacramento. But it's still crowded with Mikki Moore, Shelden Williams, Kenny Thomas and rookie Jason Thompson on board. We expect most of the minutes to go to Moore and Thompson this season.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim is still unsure of whether or not he will continue his NBA career after his latest knee surgery.

His right knee, which was operated on for the second time in six months in December, will determine whether he takes part in October training camp. If not, retirement – and possibly a coaching career with the Kings – could be on the horizon. SAR is in Africa for the Basketball Without Borders campaign, and our guess is that he is headed for retirement. But even if he does play for the Kings again, his fantasy career is over.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim has started running after undergoing knee surgery in December.

He's still not likely to play this season, but says he's given no thought to retiring. If he can't get back on the court this season, he wants to play next year, although the days of him having fantasy value are likely over. The Nets reversed a trade to acquire SAR in 2005 due to concerns about his knee after he failed a physical, and it looks like they made the right call in hindsight.

Kings forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim, who has played in only six games, will be lost for the remainder of the season after having arthroscopic surgery Friday to remove bone spurs and joint lining from his right knee.

He wasn't owned in many leagues anyway, while Mikki Moore and Brad Miller are the big men to own in Sacramento right now.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim says swelling has gone down in his right knee, but he's still not ready to rejoin the Kings lineup.

"We're just trying to wait and see, to give it a couple more days of rest," he said. "I'll probably get back in the swing of things maybe on Monday or Tuesday." Mikki Moore will likely continue to see more minutes with Abdur-Rahim sidelined.
Sun, Nov 18, 2007 08:55:00 AM

Shareef Abdur-Rahim will not play on Wednesday due to a knee injury.

Kenny Thomas is also out with a shin injury, so Ron Artest and Mikki Moore should see plenty of action tonight.

Kings' power forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim is unhappy with his extremely limited playing time, and his agent is letting the world know it. "The coach yanks him out after a minute, and that's not the way you treat veteran players," agent Aaron Goodwin said.

S-A-R isn't likely to earn his coach's favor with PR stunts like this, so don't expect a sudden boost in production. The Kings' prefer smaller lineups this year, and Kings' coach Reggie Theus barely responded to the quotes, saying only, "We're a team trying to find combinations that are going to get it done, and I'm playing the guys who I think are playing the best."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim is expected to play in the Kings' opener on Wednesday.

He played in the team's final two preseason games, and while he's still not 100 percent, it sounds like he'll play after undergoing offseason knee surgery. Kenny Thomas is slated to start at power forward.
Tue, Oct 30, 2007 04:42:00 PM

Shareef Abdur-Rahim, who had not played in the preaseason, made his first appearance with two scoreless minutes against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He's going to be brought along slowly, meaning Kenny Thomas and Mikki Moore have the most immediate fantasy impact at power forward for the Kings. By the time SAR is at full health, Thomas may hold the job outright.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in late June, practiced on Monday for the first time this season.

"It felt pretty good," he said of his knee. "I think you can do all the stuff you do when you rehab, but it's different when you actually play. That's the real test. And I really hadn't played since the end of last season." He's going to fight for power forward minutes with Mikki Moore and Kenny Thomas.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim was expected to miss the exhibition season, but the Kings forward said Thursday he hopes to return against the Clippers Wednesday in Los Angeles.

"I'd like to get some work in before the regular season," said Abdur-Rahim, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in mid-June and suffered a setback just before training camp. When he returns, look for him to split time with Kenny Thomas and Mikki Moore, hurting all three players' fantasy value.
Fri, Oct 19, 2007 02:52:00 PM

Shareef Abdur-Rahim will take at least three weeks off to rest his surgically repaired right knee.

Abdur-Rahim had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in the offseason and hasn't completely healed. The Kings may not get a whole lot from him early on this season.
