Former player or not I have no patience for fraud under the cover of a charity. Despicable.

Very sad story. Bekale was a very bright young man and his charity work was always something that distinguished him. Here’s hoping that most of those funds at least made it to Africa. I’d hate to find out that he’s been doing nothing but lining his pockets all these years.

I’m not sure if that’s coincidence or not.

Stephan makes Forbes

Probably not the way that he wanted.

More despicable than sad. If a guy is defrauding banks, I’m guessing he is not using the money for good. Robin Hood is a fictional character. :frowning:
