Kincade indicates there is a real local buyer



Per his tweet, and ajc fan blog, its confidential, and the potential owner wants to buy the full package of the Thrashers, Hawks and operating rights for Philips Arena.  I will post a couple of links to articles concerning this in the response section.

 

As for Kincade, I have always thought of him as a know nothing blow hard; so with that in mind, I am certainly going to take this revelation with a grain of salt.  However, the mere possibility that there is sincere interest I find to be encouraging.  Additionally, the mere thought that not only is there interest, but also an interest to completely rid us of the Atlanta Spirit altogther and keep the teams here would be an absolute slam dunk. 

 

Let the speculating begin as to who this mystery owner would be, Kincade indicates that its not that bozo Rollins, but my money would be on one of the following being the guys behind this:

 

1.  Arthur Blank

2.  Bernie Marcus

3.  David McDavid* - remember he won his suit and settled out of court to the best of my knowledge
