Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley says in a lawsuit that his former agent gave him and his mother improper benefits during his one season at Kansas State. Betting lines

Beasley filed a countersuit in a Maryland court a month ago in response to agent Joel Bell’s wrongful termination lawsuit against him. Beasley says Bell conspired with Beasley’s AAU coach to forge a relationship with the star from the time he was 14 years old in hopes of cashing in on that relationship when Beasley went to the NBA. Beasley added that Bell gave his mother living expenses and paid for her move to Manhattan, Kan., when he went to school there, which would likely violate NCAA rules.

The allegations were first reported in a major market newspaper. The question is why do we care? In lieu of the NCAA finally moving closer to understand the NCAA player needs this issue may not have the same negative reaction by many observers. The NCAA has just approved the $2,000 scholarship increase to our beloved college athlete. Sports scores

Agents, coaches, colleges, boosters and university board of directors have all taken advantage of college student athletes. Now they are demanding revenue sharing with the NCAA and the board is rejecting their demand. Beasley may have been taken advantage of by his agent but the mother obviously took the money because she needed it.

The NCAA system and recruiting culture is crazy and needs reform. The entire incident is disturbing. Maybe if we can provide resources to young gifted players or their families they will not be prey for vultures.
