John Lucas: Legend On and Off the Court

Basketball great John Lucas was on the Houston Business Hour with Allen Robinson and myself today on CNN 650 (M-F at 7 AM). It was a fascinating interview which included a candid conversation about his struggle with drugs and an even more open look at what is going on in the business side of sports.

On today's show John discussed:

* How he found himself struggling with drug and alcohol addiction

* How high profile athletes stay in major cities and how that affects league parity

* The struggles young athletes have transitioning from high school and college to the pros

* Insight into the way salary caps work in the NBA and more
