A few years back, I was discussing overseas women’s hoops with someone very familiar with international basketball. I asked her if the players who competed in Russia, especially, knew how their team owners had amassed their wealth.
“The question,” she said wryly, “is whether they want to know. And the answer is no. They don’t want to know.”
But one of these days, I suggested, this could come to a bad end, couldn’t it? Of course, she said, and it probably will.
