Derek Anderson had a career that amounted to being a journey man after he suffered multiple knee injuries which limited his potential. Now he’s facing allegations that could limit his freedom. Francois Cunningham an admitted murderer and drug runner is aledging that Anderson was the money man behind the huge drug scheme he worked for under an associate of Andersons’. Cunningham claims that Anderson used his legit NBA income to cover for the drug money. Andersons attorney claims these accusations are false and that Cunningham is only making these claims because Andersons’ name will garner attention. Anderson isn’t the only former. Ball player linked to a drug investigation. Newly named NBA coach Mark Jacksons’ friend Warren Braithwaite is under investigation by the DEA on suspicion for being involved in a marajuana drug ring. Mark has since released a statemnet saying he’s not seen eveidence that Braithwaite is the person police say he is. If anybody would know Braithwaite is head usher at the church where Mark and his wife are pastors. But one thing both these stories have are players who maybe kept ties too close to those linked with trouble. I don’t think Anderson or Mark are involved in any illegal activity, but at what point do you draw the line with old friends that insist on being in the midst of trouble. Too many times we’ve seen people get drawn down because of the company they keep, not knowing when to cut off people who serve no beneficial purpose. Hopefully when the smoke clears both of these men have names cleared and no longer attached to negativity and the focus can go back on what the positive things their involved in.
