The Godfather of D.C. Basketball was Also a Cocaine Kingpin
Published: 7 months ago
The “godfather of D.C. basketball,” Curtis Malone bred three NBA lottery picks and hundreds of Division I players through his D.C. AAU program. Basketball players were not all Malone dealt in, however. In 2014, Malone was convicted for his role in a massive cocaine and heroin ring.
“It’s like the most dysfunctional Robin Hood story ever,” Malone’s stepdaughter said, claiming he sold drugs only to help pay rent for players’ families or help out friends in need. Red Cards investigates, discovering corruption and scandal behind one of the best basketball training programs in the country.
