Avenatti was previously charged in New York with trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to expose claims that the shoemaker paid off high school basketball players to steer them to Nike-sponsored colleges. And in Los Angeles, he’s facing a multicount federal indictment alleging that he stole millions of dollars from clients, didn’t pay taxes, committed bank fraud and lied during bankruptcy proceedings.

He's a real piece of work.

That was also after he blew up. He's a classic case of flying too close to the sun.

The irony is that because Avenatti is involved nobody seems to care that the shoemaker paid off high school basketball players to steer them to Nike-sponsored colleges.

I guess I don't see the problem. Why is this a bad thing?

level 5

Because college basketball is a billion dollar operation and we can't have any of those pesky players getting a slice of the pie.

Because there is a façade upheld in college sports which purports that student athletes are amateurs and should not be paid, but this surreptitious business still happens and it undermines the entire premise behind refusing to pay the players.

Has there ever been a rise to and fall from political fame faster than his?

Mooch, I guess.
