On Sunday, Atlanta Hawks owner Tony Ressler took out a full-page ad in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Ressler thanked Vince Carter for his extraordinary career and for being a mentor to the team’s younger players. “On behalf of the Atlanta Hawks and all our fans, we want to thank you spending the last two years of your extraordinary career with us,” Ressler said. “I speak for myself, and know that Steve, Travis and Lloyd echo these sentiments – you have been an invaluable mentor to our young players, a remarkable member of the Atlanta community and an outstanding role model to our organization.”
"The Hawks have partnered with State Farm, the city of Atlanta, and Goodr, a local startup geared toward fighting hunger in Atlanta, to help provide food for those who need it during the ongoing novel coronavirus crisis... Hawks principal owners Tony Ressler and Jami Gertz matched the contributions with donations of their own."
