The above item was taken from the Facebook profile of 16 year old Graham Bennett, son of Oklahoma City Thunder owner Clay Bennet (image culled from Bend It Like Bennett). As the Sporting Blog’s Tom Ziller explained last month, “Crooked Oak is a public school in the poorer OKC city center. Graham apparently attends Casady, a $15,000-per-year private school located in a swanky part of town known delightfully as The Village.”
Far be it for me to say David Stern bet on the wrong horse, but in a league whose owners include Donald Sterling and James Dolan, it’s kind of amazing that a relative newcomer like the elder Bennett has managed to alienate so many in such a short spell. It’s also amazing the above story was so widely circulated 4 weeks ago and I somehow snoozed through it.
