Mark Jackson has been publicly supporting his wife’s music career since leaving the Warriors. Desiree Coleman Jackson has sung at Warriors games before and she’s talented. She recently dropped a new single and Mark wanted to thank those who bought it.
He wanted to personally thank the people and in doing so, asked them to post their phone numbers publicly on Twitter.
What a crazy season this has been. Ray Rice. Ray McDonald. Adrian Peterson. Greg Hardy. Just saying those names and immediately think about their recent issues off the field. Domestic violence, child abuse, bullying and there are a ton of other players out there with DUIs, drug use and many other crimes.
I am not sure what is going on. I don’t remember this many news hits of NFL players causing trouble when I was a kid. Maybe there were but it wasn’t as public. Or maybe it’s because we live in an age where these common mishaps are just more accessible and easier to expose.
But why are these athletes screwing up? Was it something from their upbringing? Is it the fame and fortune? What is making them act the way they do?
