Spencer Haywood: College Ball Has "Tinge Of Slavery"


Hall of Fame basketball player Spencer Haywood says he sees "a tinge of slavery" in the way college basketball players are treated.  Haywood told "Sporting News" that he thinks there's a racial component to it, pointing out how many teams depend on unpaid black players.  He said it's a double-standard because coaches can move from school to school where athletics bring in million of dollars while players are penalized.  

Haywood said that full scholarships aren't enough and it "sounds a little like 400 years ago" where slaves were told to do all the work and just got fed in exchange.
