An earlier contender for the hottest press release of the week, courtesy the AP :
Former Georgia Tech point guard and NBA All-Star Kenny Anderson was hired as coach of the CBA’s Atlanta Krunk on Tuesday.
Anderson averaged 26 points as a sophomore at Georgia Tech and helped lead the Yellow Jackets to the Final Four in 1990 along with Dennis Scott and Brian Oliver — nicknamed “Lethal Weapon 3.”
“I feel that coming back to the city where I was a college star at Georgia Tech to coach is a blessing,” Anderson said in a statement. “I look forward to the challenge that lies ahead. I will work hard and will be fully committed to the CBA’s Atlanta Krunk being a success.”
The terms of Anderson’s contract are confidential, according to CBA rules. Former C&C Music Factory lead vocalist Freedom Williams is the Krunk’s franchise majority owner.
Though he wasn’t reached for a comment, I am sure former teammate Derrick Coleman would’ve offered a hearty congratulations and/or “whoop-de-damn-doo”.
Though the Feed’s Josh Alper was right on top of Vin Baker’s latest alcohol related setback, there are two questions still unanswered :
a) is James Dolan every bit as lousy an AA sponsor as he is the owner of a basketball team / guitar player?
b) how will this impact the day to day operations of Vinnie’s Saybrook Fish House?
