A failed movie led to the FBI investigation of hoops?

So it appears. Paula Lavigne of ESPN (who did really good work on the Baylor football mess) connects the dots.

Very interesting…You would have thought the movie “Blue Chips” would have brought some interest on recruiting. Was kinda tongue in cheek but had a lot of truth to it.

I still don’t understand the chain of money. Did it come from shoe companies and went to this guy who then contacted the assistant coaches who then had the money given to the player or parents. Someone please explain to me what went on, what was the chain of events and people, why the FBI got involved and where does the NCAA fit in? I am slow a learner.
