"When I panicked, I was hoping to escape the scrutiny, and therefore I was hoping that I wouldn't have to tell [my family] the truth," Bliss said. "That put me in a position where when the truth came out, there was tremendous disappointment, and that's justifiable. They [Bliss' wife, two sons and daughter] know it was a tremendously bad decision."
... I think the NBA is dead wrong to allow those who haven't won the trophy (or will NEVER win it, cough*Vlade*cough) to touch it and pose with it. Perhaps I'm too much of a purist, but the trophy belongs to the champions. Typical cheesy NBA marketing.
