Eric Musselman's DUI

Sacramento Kings owners Joe and Gavin Maloof have announced that coach Eric Musselman won't face punishment from the team as a result of his recent arrest for driving under the influence. (Musselman could still face a fine or suspension from the NBA if he's convicted.)

Musselman is, by all accounts, a good guy and a family man. He's apparently not a big drinker. He made a mistake.

But this is not a strong enough response from the Kings or the NBA.

I'd like to see something a little stronger than Musselman's tearful apology. A substantial donation from the richer-than-god Maloofs to MADD or something similar. A SADD fundraiser at the Kings home opener. Anything to show that the NBA and the Kings take drunk driving seriously.

One would think drunk driving would be top-of-mind for David Stern and the rest of the NBA this week, given the recent news that the three-time loser who killed Malik Sealy in a drunk driving incident six years ago was arrested on October 17th with a blood alcohol content more than twice Minnesota's legal limit.
