Honesty pushes Atlanta Hawks into unchartered territory

It is unorthodox, no question. Hawks general manager Danny Ferry is conducting a head coach search while Larry Drew still holds the position. Drew, under contract until June 30, is interviewing for other head coaching jobs in the NBA. Not how it’s usually done. What makes the situation unique is that both sides are operating with an approach of complete honesty. Ferry informed Drew following the season that he would talk and interview other candidates for the position while determining the direction of the franchise. Drew is still being considered for the job he did in leading the Hawks to another playoff berth. Ferry certainly didn’t have to inform Drew of his plans. He could have let Drew wait until the end of June before allowing him to move on. Or he could have cut ties with Drew shortly after the season-ending loss to the Pacers. Ferry also didn’t have to allow Drew to interview for other positions since he is still under contract. When the NHL’s Thrashers were sold and moved from Atlanta to Winnipeg, Craig Ramsey was still the head coach. However, the new management let Ramsey sit and wait on his fate. When they finally granted him an interview, and subsequently made another hire, all the available head coach vacancies in the league had been filled. Ramsey eventually took an assistant coach position with the Panthers. It has been an awkward situation for Drew. He made it known that he would like to continue to coach the Hawks. He also stated that he understands that Ferry inherited him as coach and has the right to find his own person for the job. He asked for, and was granted, the ability to seek another position while the process continues. Drew will interview with the Bucks today and may soon talk to another team after each was granted permission by Ferry. Drew made his schedule known when he could have kept it under wraps. Ferry has been very tight-lipped about his search. We do know that he has talked to Stan Van Gundy, Nate McMillan, Mike Budenholzer and Ettore Messina. There are believed to be other candidates. The position may end up being filled by someone not known until it is announced. During the process both Ferry and Drew have not ruled out the possibility that after all is said and done, there is no coaching change. Ferry told the AJC last week that “Larry and I have had open communication about this approach. If Larry and I continue to work together, we ultimately will be a stronger organization because of our discussions and this thorough process.” Drew told the AJC that while he is prepared to move on the possibility remains the situation could “evolve” back to his return.

Can 'Crying Michael Jordan' get you sued?
The Crying Micheal Jordan Meme was by far one of the best things to come out of 2015. Social media kingpins relentlessly attack famous people across the globe at their weakest moments with a crying MJ meme centered around their latest blunder. It's pretty low, but I must say, it's pretty damn funny. "It just seems to have an appropriateness for so many different circumstances," said Andrew Selepak, director of the social media graduate program at the University of Florida's College of Journalism and Communications. "That face can be used for a meme for a number of different levels, whether it's sports or non-sports related. But because of the passion people have for sports, I think it has legs like few other memes that have been popular in the past." It's had an amazing amount of staying power, and like most things that have this type of power, often comes dollars. So when money gets involved, who owns the rights to this? Could a person be sued over the Crying meme? The Associated Press could pursue legal action if it believes its copyright of the image has been violated. "We own the rights in our photo, which was taken in 2009," Associated Press spokesman Paul Colford wrote in an email to ESPN.com. "We could enforce those rights depending on the use and other factors, as is the case with all AP photos." Likewise, Jordan spokesperson Estee Portnoy recently implied that the basketball icon's camp is keeping a close eye on usage of the meme. "We haven't seen anyone using it to promote their commercial interests, which is something that we're monitoring," Portnoy wrote in an email to the Chicago Tribune. So be careful about letting loose a signature Crying Micheal Jordan meme, it could cost you some dollars down the line.

'Space Jam' Is Still The Best Movie Ever.
So you've read the title of this card, and I already know what you're thinking. "Dani, does 'Inception' mean nothing to you?" or "You're trying to tell me that you think 'Space Jam' is a better movie than [Insert the title of a Quentin Tarantino movie here.]?" And I'm here to tell you - yes, you insolent fools. 'Space Jam' is the 'Citizen Kane' of our time. And here's why: First off, it stars Michael Jordan, arguably the most beloved sports celebrity of the past 30 years or so. Think about it. Tiger Woods? Scandal. Lance Armstrong? Scandal. Michael Jordan? Selling Nikes to you, your friend, your brother, and your dad easily since 1984. (That's right. 1984.) Secondly, it lets kids imagine a world where their favorite 'Looney Toons' characters live among humans. Porky Pig asking for Michael Jordan's autograph? Daffy Duck spraying his spit all over as he argues with Bill Murray? Newman from 'Seinfeld' being flattened out like Wyle E. Coyote under an Acme anvil? Priceless. So much priceless. Plus, I think every 90s kid is STILL obsessed with the movie's soundtrack. "COME ON AND SLAM AND WELCOME TO THE JAM." will always be all that needs to be said before a party starts in any given room. Plus, "I Believe I Can Fly", "Hit 'Em High", "Fly Like An Eagle", and "For You I Will" are singles that are just as great to listen to today. The roster of NBA stars that get their skills stolen by the Monstars reads like an MVP blast from the past. Patrick Ewing, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley -- These guys were the absolute kings of basketball in the 90s, and seeing them all act in this movie is SUPER amusing, but also makes you feel kind of old now. (I mean, Muggsy Bogues is 50 today, you guys.) 'Space Jam' inspired a whole generation of kid athletes and non-athletes - including NBA power forward Blake Griffin. I mean, I'm not saying that Little Kid Blake Griffin was watching 'Space Jam' in the movie theater, thinking something like "Hey, maybe if I get 'NBA Rookie Of The Year', it'll up my odds of meeting Bugs Bunny'." But I'm also not NOT saying that. And so, my fellow Vinglers, I hope that I have made you reconsider where your previous loyalties laid and will join me in the 'Space Jam Is The Coolest' Vingle Fan Club - where the current members are Me, Me, Me, and @christianmordi over in the Sports Community. What was YOUR favorite part about 'Space Jam'?
