Ball Hogs: Should Athletes be Role Models?

We look up to athletes. It’s inevitable. But should athletes really be looked at as role models? And what social responsibilities come with that title? The guys discuss, after updating people on the latest trade rumors and crazy Kobe stories.

Several athletes have worn "I Can't Breathe" shirts during warm ups in support of the family of Eric Garner, who died July 17 after a police officer placed him in a chokehold when he was being arrested for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes.
