Makes me think what him and Pop were doing all these years in SA  :hmm:


People in ATL are nuts. Calling into Sports talk 680AM and saying he should be fired....lmao.

Its a DUI. Big deal. If a guy working a 9-5 gets a DUI does he lose his job? No. Hes gonna be the best coach ATL has EVER had imo. If he wants to puff n drink during the off season thats his business. NEWS FLASH 99% of the players get high. Ron Artest admitted getting high and drinking at half time. And he won a NBA Championship. Fine him, put him in his rehab class, etc. But nobody except drivers lose their job for a DUI so please people cut the bull [expletive].



Atlanta Hawks Head Coach Mike Budenholzer has been arrested. He faces charges concerning alcohol, drugs, "multiple substances" and tail lights installed on a vehicle, according to the Atlanta Municipal Court.

In total, Budenholzer faces the following six charges:

D.U.I./ALCOHOL (40-6-391.A1)
D.U.I./DRUGS (40-6-391.A2)
D.U.I./ALCOHOL & DRUGS (40-6-391.A3)

Sets a bad example to the players and kids of Atlanta.



Regular people don't lose their job because there aren't millions on the line. as an owner, this would be a concern of mine.


This is the first bit of publiity you guys have.



This guy isn't proven.He is Mike Brown maybe.


i keep trying to explain something about coaching. Phil is not a great coach because of the triangle He is a great coach because of his personality.


Kurt was not great. B, Shaw may or may not be great.


Stan Van Gundy and Jeff Van Gundy aren't viewed in the same light.


It's personalities , not systems.

Alcohol AND drugs AND multiple substances


Fire his ass and let someone else hire him. All of us can relate to going thru personal [expletive] that gets you down (maybe thats the case for him) but that doesn't mean his employer has to put up with it. Let him get his life together and he'll get another job.

 multiple substances

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
