Default Shabazz Muhammad actually a year older than originally reported...

http://touch.latimes.com/#section/-1.../p2p-74959726/

very bizarre.

Quote:
According to the UCLA men's basketball media guide, he was born in Los Angeles on Nov. 13, 1993.

But a copy of Shabazz Nagee Muhammad's birth certificate on file with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health shows that he was born at Long Beach Memorial Hospital exactly one year earlier, making him 20 years old not 19 as widely reported.

How and when he lost a year of his life are unclear. But competing against younger, smaller athletes, particularly in the fast-growing years of early adolescence, can be "a huge edge," said Eddie Bonine, executive director of the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Assn. "People naturally look at the big, strong kids."

Asked about the discrepancy, Holmes insisted his son was 19 and born in Nevada. "It must be a mistake," he said.

Several minutes later, he changed his account, saying that his son is, in fact, 20 and was born in Long Beach.

Holmes expressed concern about disclosure of his son's true age and his own criminal record and questioned whether either was newsworthy. He followed up with a text message.

"Bazz is going to blow up in the NBA lets team up and blow this thing up!!!" Holmes wrote to this reporter. "I'm going to need a publicist anyway why shouldn't it be you. We can do some big things together."

So he's actually 20 years old, turning 21 this year...

Jesus, that story sounds like Todd Marinovich.

I feel sorry for the kid. Ron Holmes is some shitty father.. No wait, some horrible human being.

You read more of it and it gets worse...

Quote:
"As a student, Holmes said, he found himself fascinated by the careful breeding of thoroughbreds, the way that two fast, powerful horses could be crossed to create an even faster, more powerful colt.

Around that time he met Faye Paige, a point guard, sprinter and hurdler at Cal State Long Beach. Spotting her at a summer league game, Holmes recalled saying to a friend: 'See that No. 10? She's going to be my wife, and we're going to make some All-Americans.'"

yea i read that part I seriously lol'd. he could have said it as a joke and the reporter took it out of context but i might be just playing devils advocate. I've always questioned some of the decisions this guy has made regarding Shahbazz's career, as soon as I read ab him committing to UCLA I knew he was going to be one and done and it had Ron Holmes' fingerprints all over it.
