AAU Basketball doesn't have the best reputation. Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel goes in depth on a story he wrote called "Out of Power: How DC's Most Prominent AAU Leader Landed in Jail." Curtis Malone handled notable players like Michael Beasley and Nolan Smith. He was sentenced to 100 months in prison after being convicted of drug trafficking. Thamel goes into the story, his time visiting Malone in prison and how what people around Malone think of him.
