You will not be hearing one damn thing as commentary about that Jayson Williams’ trial in Somerville here, beyond this:

I figured out a couple days after all those Channel 2/4/7 trucks started showing up downtown, what was going on. (Shows how I missed the connection on that one!)

Ultimately, this is where sports glorification leads us in our society. Somebody decides they can just “off” somebody else—-probably because in the back of their minds, all this can-do-no-wrong praise of the fans and admirers went too far to their heads.

This is a shame. It happened in California in 1990’s. Inevitably it ends with the media spectacle in place of justice.
