On Monday, February 25th, New England Patriots Owner Robert Kraft was charged with two counts of soliciting a prostitute. Kraft, one of the most successful owners in the NFL, has never faced charges like this before. The 77 year old billionaire visited a spa in Florida and asked for a sex act on two separate occasions. Once on January 19th and again on the 20th, just hours before the Patriots AFC Championship game. The video below goes into more detail on the incident.
Kraft has already come out and denied engaging in any illegal activity. The court case is expected to be conducted sometime in April, with Kraft facing up to a year in prison plus a $5,000 fine and community service.
Social media was quick to roast the Patriots Owner, here are some of my favorites.
Duke Blue Devils’ superstar basketball player Zion Williamson suffered a freak injury last Wednesday, February 20th. In the first 40 seconds of the game, Williamson tore through his entire shoe and suffered a grade 1 right knee sprain. Since then, Zion missed Duke’s last game against Syracuse and is not expected to play tomorrow against Virginia Tech.
The question that has been floating around is not when Zion will return to play, but whether he will play again at all this season. Expected to the number one overall pick in this years NBA Draft, many people think he should sit out the rest of the season. While Duke has an incredible team that could very well make a run at a national championship, Zion is risking getting injured again or making it worse. Overall ruining his chances at being one of the best NBA players in a long time. Sports Reporter Darren Rovell asked Twitter what they think.
There you have it, 2 out of 3 people think Zion should call it quits. NBA players Trae Young and Isaiah Thomas also expressed their opinions saying that they believe Zion should rest. It will an interesting next week or so to see what Zion will do.
