Danny Ferry and wife Tiffany Ferry seem like good people. After meeting in Cleveland during Danny's playing days, and marrying in the summer of 1995, Danny credits his wife with helping his game. During hundreds of offseason training hours, Tiffany fed him the ball, helped in part by her past as a former softball pitcher.

The athletic couple went on to have their own starting five of children, Hannah, Grace, Sophia, Lucy and Jackson. The family is involved in multiple charitable endeavors, most notably with Danny on the board for Playing for Peace, a non-profit organization using basketball to unite children across the world.

The Ferry's have built the American dream. Great job, great family, charitable work. Yet as hunky-dory as their life seems, they still might struggle to escape this one unscathed

With the sports world buzzing about controversies with Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Donald Sterling and Jeff Wilpon, Danny Ferry is the latest to add his name to the list. On a conference call in June, 2014, Ferry was recorded speaking about free agent Luol Deng. The Atlanta Journal Constitution obtained a recording of the call, where Ferry can be heard saying:

"He's a good guy overall ... but he's not perfect. He's got a little African in him. And I don't mean that in a bad way,"

In reference to being a locker room lawyer who toes the line with coached around and complains when they're not around, Ferry went on to describe Deng as a shady shop owner; promising one thing and delivering another. For his part, Ferry has admitted to saying the remarks, but said he was reading from a scouting report on Deng. He does not reference this report on the recording.

On September 12, Danny Ferry requested and received an indefinite leave of absence from his duties as GM.

With Danny set to be around the house more, let's hope his wife Tiffany can handle it. We'll keep an eye on this one as it unfolds.

Let's start with some facts:
In a surprise ceremony on Christmas Eve, Al Horford married the 2003 Miss Universe, Amelia Vega. Horford and Vega were married at her Uncle's home in the Dominican Republic, which is the country she represented in the Miss Universe competition. Vega's uncle also happens to be famous, as an award winning singer famous in the D.R., Juan Luis Guerra.
Since the competition, the now 26 year old Vega has moved to the United States, and lives in Miami where she opened a high end clothing boutique and recently recorded her first album.

Now some unconfirmed rumors:
We know that Horford was dating and potentially engaged to a woman named Stephanie Gonzalez since at least 2008. MediaTakeOut is reporting that Horford dumped Gonzalez as recently as a week before his new marriage. The wedding ceremony was sprung on guests as a surprise under the guise they were just attending a party. MTO reports that some guests arriving to the party had no idea that Horford and Gonzalez had even broken up and were shocked to watch the wedding occur.

We have no idea how long Gonzalez and Horford were broken up for, but the relationship with Vega is definitely relatively new. If anything further ever comes out, we'll keep you posted.
