    •Raised in a single-parent home, with a rotating cast of father figures.
    •No tolerance as a youngster for real coaching. Countless victories are lost to poor strategy.
    •Terrible grades and at times a really glaring lack of education.
    •Shopping from school to school to find one who will grant a diploma.
    •A car provided by an unofficial "sponsor."
    •Trouble with teammates, family and sometimes the police, including for outrunning the police in more than one high-speed chase.
    •Later in life, divorce, dallying with various celebrities, and a child out of wedlock.

    Some white dude who doesn't play basketball and is considered a model citizen, perhaps one who started an anti-cancer group and sells silly flexible bracelets that are yellow?

    (yes, I read the story already)

    I think the whole having a child out of wedlock part disqualifies him.

    Does it add.. cheated to win by taking performance enhancing drugs, which gave him cancer and then started taking them again once he was cured?

    Some day it might, but it's yet to be proven. I just enjoyed the oerall point he made as an NBA fan who is annoyed by the bad rap the NBA gets.
