For those who remember "Hoop Dreams" (the documentary from '94 or so on the lives of two kids who aspired to be professional basketball players), I was just at the Slamball site (don't ask) and saw that the Rumble had a player named Arthur Agee.
Now, it could be some other Arthur Agee, but I don't have much way of knowing since the site isn't exactly loaded with information. I'm going to assume it's him though. Too bad...he doesn't seem to be getting much PT. At least his team is in first!
That sounds good but several points. 1. The chances that he could live to see his children to adulthood and actively participate were slim (evidently). 2. You are correct in that the woman went along. She is as irresponsible as he was. 3.
