Benson won't be alone in Atlanta
“When we heard ‘Atlanta,’ you should have been here,” Hale told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “Nobody in America knew how deep our roots went to Atlanta.”
If his biological lineage wasn't enough, Benson is expected to lean on fellow Birmingham Detroit Country Day alum and former NBA rookie of the year Chris Webber, who is now a studio analyst for TNT and resides in Atlanta.
Hale, who teaches at Wayne State University, told the AJC she plans to return to Atlanta "eventually."
Benson might need all the company he can get depending on how long this lockout lasts.
