Giants kicker Josh Brown admitted to physically and emotionally abusing his wife and called himself a sex-addicted “deviant” who viewed himself as “God” and his wife as “my slave,” according to entries in his own journals, emails to his wife, and a letter he wrote to friends. The documents were part of Brown’s domestic violence case in which he was charged with 4th-degree assault/domestic violence after an incident with his now ex-wife, Molly. The charge was eventually dropped, but the incident led to Brown being suspended for the Giants’ season opener as punishment for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Now the documents in the case have been released by several media outlets.

In case you haven’t noticed, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have been battling in the media with each of them getting two covers of major magazines (Durant –Rolling Stone/SLAM & Westbrook – Sports Illustrated/GQ) to tell their side of the story. Earlier today I posted the excerpts from Durant’s Rolling Stone article talking about why he left the Thunder. In this excerpt, Durant talks about the moments he decided to rock with the Warriors.
Born in Red Hook, Brooklyn and raised in Baltimore, Carmelo Anthony has seen his fair share of race and societal issues. In a feature for ESPN The Magazine, Anthony talked about the Freddie Gray case in his hometown of Baltimore, and the wise words he told Colin Kaepernick after the 49ers quarterback started a major protest.
I still remember July 4th when Kevin Durant posted the first-person article on The Player’s Tribune announcing that he was leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors. I remember checking Russell Westbrook’s social media to see if the outspoken guard said anything about losing his partner in crime. I also remember seeing the picture of the cupcakes he posted, thinking it was his way of showing he’s unbothered. Well, it turns out I was wrong.
In the October 31 “NBA Preview” edition of ESPN The Magazine, they spoke with Carmelo Anthony about everything but basketball. Instead it was an in depth discussion about police brutality, race, and the issues plaguing society. The New York Knicks star has come out in the forefront of black athletes speaking out with all these police-involved shootings and issues in black neighborhoods.
