BASKETBALL: Too Much Vin

WATFO, as Bill Simmons would say (and undoubtedly will say, about this news): Vin Baker admits that he is an alcoholic. (Link via Boston Sports Blog).

Good luck to Baker getting his life and maybe even his game straightened out -- he's a guy who came far from Hartford College to the big time, and has fallen an awful long way since signing a big contract. A cautionary tale, this one, about long-term multi-million dollar deals for young men who haven't learned how to cope with pressure.

UPDATE: A commenter corrects me - Baker went to the University of Hartford. My bad.

Not to be a jerk, but it's the University of Hartford.
