Is It Time To Honor Len Bias?

Is It Time To Honor Len Bias?

We chat with an author and biographer about the controversial legacy of former University of Maryland basketball player Len Bias.

It's been more than two decades since Len Bias, a University of Maryland basketball star, died of a drug overdose. Since then, the memories of Bias' achievements on the court have been pushed aside by those of his tragic death - an event that scarred both his school and the Washington region. But Bias is among those being honored this year by a local basketball hall of fame - a tribute some feel is long overdue. We explore Bias' often controversial legacy.
