kareem was an amazing professional athlete ( i was a huge fan from his high school days to the end)

and it appears he's done a fine job mentoring andrew bynum.  and he is a passionate jazz fan. 

however, unless he's gone through some recovery programs to make him a warmer, more open, and 

more positive human being, sorry if i cringed rather than jumped for joy at the news he's been named

a cultural ambassador.  this might be hard to understand unless youve spent some real time with the man.

just sayin'...it is sobering sometimes when we come face-to-face with heroes.
