Ferry Family Business
Check out David DuPree's USA Today article on Danny Ferry, and the work Ferry has been doing as the new GM for the Cleveland Cavaliers. I always knew Ferry's pedigree would push forth eventually in the NBA. Danny Ferry's dad, Bob, played for the Baltimore Bullets and was a helluva GM for the Washington Bullets where he was a two-time NBA Executive of the Year in '78-79 & '81-82...(The Sonics that ass in '79..;))
In a look back, I've been intrigued by Danny Ferry since his days at DeMatha. I always thought he would have been an incredible player...not that he wasn't at Duke...but at North Carolina. I know his final decision was between Duke and UNC. However, I've heard that he was lined up for Duke because of his father's past relationship with Coach Dean Smith...Now that's a rumored statement, peoples...Don't quote that on me!
(With that said, if you do know why he didn't go to UNC, drop me a line...Hey, where's Art Chansky when you need him?!)
Enjoy the article...He's got a ways to go in Cleveland.
