Silent On Investment Group
REAX: A COMMERCIAL APPEAL editorial states, “It’s unfair to pass judgment on Davis and Laettner until they’ve had an opportunity to present their case to the NBA. League commissioner David Stern and his staff will no doubt scrutinize their financial plans very carefully” (COMMERCIAL APPEAL, 12/4). In Memphis, Geoff Calkins writes, “Putting aside the public relations missteps Davis has made since he first surfaced in Memphis, the deal he has assembled is hard to understand. ... The city is going to scrutinize him. The press is going to scrutinize him. The NBA had better scrutinize him like they’ve scrutinized few before. And then, if Davis passes muster, we’ll all celebrate together” (COMMERCIAL APPEAL, 12/2).
