Mark Bartelstein Rumors

I had a message to call Mark Bartelstein. I first met Bartelstein in 1985. He was a young agent who was representing John “Hot Rod” Williams, drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Williams was falsely implicated in a point-shaving scandal at Tulane. “I have some bad news,” Bartelstein said Tuesday night. “Hot Rod,” I said. “Cancer,” said Bartelstein. “It’s bad. Real bad.” Williams is in the intensive care unit of a hospital in the Baton Rouge area. He grew up in nearby Sorrento, La. He always went home after the NBA season.
