Bruce Levenson: The Challenges of Selling An NBA Team

After months of speculation, in April 2015, USA Today reported that Bruce Levenson had finalized a deal to sell his NBA team, the Atlanta Hawks. The buyers were a group of well-known individuals, lead by billionaire, Anthony Ressler and included retired NBA player, Grant Hill, Michael Gearon, Jr. and co-founder of Marquis Jet, Jesse Itzler.

Ressler wanted to acquire another basketball team, but that deal fizzled, when the price tag went too high. The previous deal involved acquiring the Los Angeles Clippers, but when the stakes were raised to $2 billion, Ressler walked away, rather than match the offer. With the Atlanta Hawks, the new owners also received the rights to Phillips Arena for a far more reasonable price of $850 million.

Bruce Levenson originally purchased the Hawks franchise in 2004 for $250 million. He also obtained another sports team in the transaction, the National Hockey League, Atlanta Thrashers. In 2011, Levenson sold that team for $170 million. Above all else, Bruce Levenson has a knack for developing profitable professional sporting teams.

In September 2014, Levenson revealed that he was divesting interest in the Hawks, as the majority owner. According to Forbes.com, the sale of the Hawks franchise wasn’t a cut and dry deal as Bruce Levenson previous ones. First, he had to get the other minorities owners to agree and also sell their shares and then get he needed approval from the NBA.

Of course, when the dust cleared the deal went through, and Levenson received final approval from the NBA. After everything was settled, Bruce Levenson didn’t want to freeze out the integral pieces of the Atlanta Hawks organization. So, Ressler also received two key personnel members from the previous owners. The new deal was structured to include the Atlanta Hawks’ CEO, Steven Koonin and head coach, Michael Budenholzer.

The Unresolved Case Between AIG And Former Owners Of Atlanta Hawks

Atlanta Hawks recently got a new management and ownership. According to ESPN, the former owners sold the company to the billionaire Tony Ressler-led team. The reasons for selling the company rest solely with the former owners of the esteemed company, which is an NBA franchise. However, it is clear that the former owners led by Bruce Levenson and Danny Ferry have an unresolved issue with AIG over unpaid claims. According to an article published on Atlanta journal constitution’s website, there is a pending court case between the two parties.
AIG is reported to have committed a breach of their contract and acted in bad faith when it refused to pay the losses claims by the former ownership of the company. They say that Mr. Ferry, the previous general manager of Atlanta hawks, had affirmed the claims with the insurance company. The tussle rises from the fact that the letter has refused to acknowledge the claim and that the course of action has been triggered. The losses are said to be under the coverage of the policy, which also protects workers from unlawful dismissals and unfair treatment at the workplace. It means that AIG has no reason for refusing to pay for the losses, as it has also failed to prove that the claims were not made. The court case filed on 13th September seeks to use the legal means to have the insurance company own up to its part of the deal, and pay as stated in the policy agreement.

The Brown Modeling Agency knows what it takes

Becoming a model is something that a lot of men and women strive for. It’s a career that most can turn into a full-time career, if you measure up to the standards.

There are requirements that need to be met for most requested models that do runways and other big commercial events. If you are a woman and wanting to become a famous runway model you need to be at least 5’8 or above in height. Have a slender physique and a bust size around 34-36 and a waist around 24 if not smaller. Hips should be no bigger than at least 35 inches. Of course models run in all sizes depending and these noted sizes are just an average for most runaway models. If you are a model in commercials or even print, sizes can vary depending on what the company is looking for to promote their product.

Being a male model is just as strict when it comes to looks. Height should be around 6-6’2 and not overly built muscle wise, but not underweight either. The rule of thumb is the perfect male runway model should fit a size 40-42 jacket. Of course, just like women models size requirements can vary depending on what job is being fulfilled using models.

Being a child model is a little bit more relaxed when it comes to body size, but there needs to be facial features that stand out and a charming appeal when it comes to using children in commercials and print and even in theatrical areas of the business.

There is one agency in Austin that has been dealing with models for over 40 years and that is The Brown Modeling Agency. This company knows what it takes to be a model and have a lasting career at the profession. In 2010 the agency took all that knowledge and brought a division of their company to Austin, Texas. To this date the Texas based Brown Agency represents over 400 models, who not only work in the Texas area but also in the major cities like New York.

The president, Justin Brown, fully understands what clients want and need when it comes to picking models for the required jobs, and that is why they not only hold representation for runway models, but also represents average models in commercials and print.

The Brown Modeling Agency is well respected in the business and always considered by companies when they need professional models.
