As a Terps fan and with Maryland winning the national title in NCAA basketball I’m wondering if anybody remembers this cautionary tale from the '80’s.
If you don’t know who Bias was: he was an all-american forward at the University of Maryland in the mid '80’s who was the #2 pick in the NBA draft by the defending champs–the Boston Celtics.
This was a guy 2 years behind Michael Jordan in the ACC and who people like Coach K called the best player in college basketball.
What happened to Bias? Why is he not a Michael?
He celebrated his pick in the draft with cocaine and died.
DEAD at 22 years old with $millions at his fingertips.
I’m not sure what I’m asking, but did his death do some good?
Does anybody think that the altheltic superstars think twice knowing that shit like coke can kill them?
I don’t want to preach, and my favorite memory of Bias is of him skying and dunking, but:
What have we, or superstars, learned?
