Six-time All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire talked about the wine baths he took during his NBA career while on TNT’s show Players Only on Tuesday night. With Chris Webber, Isiah Thomas and Baron Davis on set, the questions went from “How did the wine baths help you?” to “How about the recovery in the morning, you ain’t have no hangover in the morning?” to “Do you drink your own bath water (from the wine bath)?”
While he was cleared by the FBI after its six-year investigation into Michigan booster Ed Martin and his payment of players, four Wolverines (most notably Chris Webber) were found to have received more than $600,000 combined from Martin. The sanctions that followed stained the Michigan program but changed nothing of the question that remains today: Why aren’t the players who are driving these profits paid? “It really just becomes a mockery when you hear that the players who are participating can’t profit off of their likeness, can’t get a summer job, can’t go to the pros right after high school, all of these barriers,” Rose said. “An organization like the NCAA can still be classified as a 501-C3 (nonprofit organization tax classification)? That in itself allows me to understand that there definitely needs to be change – swift, fast and in a hurry.”
Storyline: NCAA Scandal
Chris Webber told The Dan Patrick Show on Friday that he tried to go after Vin Baker – but blamed the whole thing on Gary Payton for hyping him up just a bit too much during the game. He almost made it in, he said. “I did get close to him and if we caught each other, we would have fought. But someone would have broken it up after three seconds, so it wouldn’t have been a fight. But a couple of weeks later we went out and we hung out, so it was nothing. But that’s Gary Payton on the team it just pumps everyone up and makes it an issue.
