Who Cares If Families Get Help?

The NCAA is not going to reinstate Cliff Alexander of Kansas until they find out if his family got improper benefits. The problem is that it does not matter. The NCAA has no idea where people come from, and they do not know if their families are in bad positions or not. You would be surprised what will happen if you allow these kids to get a little help for their families. Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG says the majority of them want to be famous to help get their families out of bad situations.

These players are not doing these things because they want the fame and fortune. Most of them go out and buy their parents a house when they get their first big contract, but they have to get through school first. They cannot go straight to the NBA. I would not go straight to the NBA anyways, and I think these players should be made to go to school. However, a poor family with a kid in college should be able to get help from someone who wants to give them a little money. These boosters are not using public funds to help these families, and it just does not matter at the end of the day.
