I lost a ton of respect for Marvin Lewis after those comments he made. First, not using a turn signal IS enough reason to be pulled over, and if his players weren't A) drunk B) high C) possessing drugs D) possessing guns or E) all of the above, then they wouldn't be arrested after being pulled over. I think Lewis' stance on this kind of makes sense as to why our team is constantly being arrested.
Now to be fair, the spin, or at least what he said following the initial statement was about right.
Basically the players are celebrities and stand out, if a group of people are all misbehaving, the players are the ones who will get caught because they are the easiest to recognize. That I agree with. But I don't think the players are necessarily being targeted by the police.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
