The Sad Story Of Lenny Cooke

Be sure to check out Harvey Araton's profile of Lenny Cooke for the New York Times. Cooke, for those who don't remember, was once considered a can't-miss prospect out of New York, holding his own against the likes of Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James and Amar'e Stoudemire in high school all-star camps. But instead of achieving stardom, injuries and bad decisions derailed his career before it began. Sad story, but worth your time.
