An important series from Jackie MacMullan:
- “When making the NBA isn’t a cure-all: Mental health and black athletes”
- “To medicate or not? The thorny mental health issue in the NBA”
- “The courageous fight to fix the NBA’s mental health problem”
Finally, it’s football-related but certainly basketball appropriate:
It’s not what you say you stand for but what you do in exhibiting your personal beliefs and morals. We all demonstrate our feet of clay at times but usually not at the level of the faux facade and piety of an Urban Meyer.
- “Urban Liar is a perfect symbol for college sports”
- “Ohio State’s culture of cover-up helped save Urban Meyer’s job”
MarkJonesESPN: “Coach Urban Meyer had 31 players arrested at Florida. About the same time Coach Randy Shannon had only 1 player arrested at Miami…And had an “exemplary” graduation rate. Shannon got fired. Don’t tell me college football is about anything but winning at all cost $$$”
