These are excellent.
"Benji" airs tomorrow. I can't wait for this one. Such a sad story but I'm glad they're doing a 30/30 on Benji

Ben Wilson, one of the top BB recruits in the nation mid 80's. was killed in Chicago his SR year in HS. Was heading to Illinois with Marcus Liberty, Kenny Battle, Lowell Hamilton and that group. They never found the shooter, gang related and Ben was not in a gang.

Oh ok. From Lesticals post I was under the assumption it was a tragic and sad death. Not gang on gang crime. I'll watch.
Oh it is tragic and sad. He was a good kid, just in the wrong place at wrong time. There are theories but from all accounts it was just a tragic situation.
I'll watch it i guess. Not a big fan of tragic stories. They're just downers.
Yeah - I cried when Walt Disney had that dog get hit by a train in the movie

It is a sad story.. He was a good kid.. Was the #1 overall recruit in the country.. I remember this so i think this will be a good episode.. Kid was an honor student and a good dude
They killed Ol' Yellow!!
Does it air tonight?
I really lost it then heh heh
Tomorrow.. I can't stand espn but their 30/30 episodes are excellent
Yeah they've all been good. The Two Escobars was my personal favorite.
Considering the violence in Chicago this year, Benji could potentially be a really timely piece. Hopefully it leads to some opened eyes and productive discussion.
Yeah I hate ESPN as well, but got the set of the older 30/30 series as presents. Got through most of them, have enjoyed them for the most part.
If I ever had a kid that was turning into an athlete, I'd immediately sit them down and show them some of these, first of all "Broke."
It comes on in an hour.. I'm looking forward to this one
Bump for the start of this episode for those that are interested
I had it a little wrong but it was 28 years ago. Powerful though!! My favorite of the series thus far.
Yeah that was pretty good.
enjoyed this 30/30..well done.
Meh...nothing special. All these ESPN hacks talking about on Twitter how they cried?!?! Not the best 30/30 I've seen. Left me thinking it was his fault and the other dummy was stupid for having a gun. Kept thinking it had something to do with the girlfriend like a love triangle. When I was in 8th grade i remember hearing about Marcus Liberty and he was in 6th grade! Chicago basketball back in the day was the fertile ground of studs.
Found it very interesting that his girlfriend wouldn't interview. Also interesting to hear both sides of the story but the girlfriend never told hers, who knows what really happened!?
If Billy Moore is telling the truth, Omar Dixon got fvvvvvcked.
