If you ask me, I thought the remarks that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was very heartless. The NBA will be a positive thing because of the Bryant case!! GET REAL!! Whether you like it or not, all athletes have, are, and will be considered as role models whether they like it or not. People, especially kids, look up to them. I hate to offend all Kobe fans, but I am for the 19-year old victim-accuser because I heard that in Eagleton, she is well-liked and well respected and a lot of her friends stood up for her while the rest of the nation paid more attention to Kobe and having her as a scapegoat. Let's let the courts handle the media circus and let's have more of a "Innocent Until Proven Guilty" way. By the way, Cuban should put people, victims, and sensitivity first and foremost first, instead of fame, wealth, power, and privilege!!
