Reeves Nelson Isn't Kicked Off the UCLA Basketball Team, He's Just Suspended Again

It might seem as if I’m taking glee in the debacle that has been the UCLA basketball season, but the Bruins are certainly generating plenty of headlines, and it’s not for their play on the court.

The latest mishap: Reeves Nelson, a malcontent who happens to be their best player, was suspended by coach Ben Howland. Again. That’s two suspensions and the season isn’t a month old. One report had Nelson kicked off the team, but that was incorrect. (Well, as of now, at least.) I don’t think this is even an NIT team right now.
