Jami Gertz

Media Day draws local journalists to the Atlanta Hawks practice facility on a sweltering late September morning. Over several arduous hours, athletes pose for photos, answer dozens of reporter questions, and play basketball with a few lucky kids. It’s a normal NBA day.

But suddenly, 5-foot-5 Jami Gertz walks onto the court in a neon “volt green” (one of the team colors) skirt and black stilettos that click-clack on the article-polished gym floor like a drumroll. That Jami Gertz. The cheery preppy from Square Pegs and The Facts of Life. Shakira-like bad girl from broody teen ’80s films The Lost Boys and Less Than Zero.

The 52-year-old actress now represents the Hawks, the team her 59-year-old millionaire husband, Tony Ressler, bought in 2015 for $720 million. The notoriously press-shy investor made a quick appearance in the morning and then left before TV crews arrived, but his wife is a pro at working a room, even a sports arena.

Gertz chats with power forward John Collins about his 21st birthday the night before (“You’re finally legal!”), shooting guard Kent Bazemore (“How’s my girl Sam?”) and Hawks radio announcer “Uncle Steve” Holman about his 2,500th game in 15 minutes. “She always greets me by name,” Holman says. “Our former owner, Ted Turner, called me ‘Mr. Radio.’”
