This week, NBA commissioner Adam Silver announced the league will move away from using the term "owner" in favor of the terms "Governor of the team" and "alternate Governor". Gayle Benson, however, said she's sticking with the "owner" title when it comes to the Saints and the Pelicans, per the Advocate...
"As with any word, phrase or expression ... interpretations can be perceived differently," Benson said.
"That is in many ways why diversity, inclusion and openness is so important to companies and society. As with any expression, my intention and the intentions of the organization I am responsible for is never to be insensitive or insulting."
She continued ... "I truly believe daily actions speak very loudly, and it is my sincere hope that the players and staff know how much I care for them and their families."
"I sincerely hope no term that attempts to define my corporate standing would in any negative way suggest a lack of caring, respect or admiration for that they accomplish every day -- leaders, teammates, colleagues, parents, mentors, citizens."
