The AP is reporting that former Hawks/Cavs/Sonics G Eddie Johnson has been charged with the sexual assualt of an 8 year old girl in Ocala, FL. Johnson, a two-time NBA All-Star, has had no shortage of legal troubles over the years, and was diagnosed as manic depressive in 1981.
This cannot be considered good news for another former Sonic named Eddie Johnson, the ’88-’89 Sixth Man Award winner, current Suns broadcaster and occasional contributor to the excellent Hoops Hype website. Please try to keep in mind that not all former Sonics from the 1980’s named Eddie Johnson have been accused of sex crimes against children. Just half of them.
