NJ.com- Two former Division 1 college basketball stars were arrested in an undercover prostitution sting Friday evening, authorities said.
Myles Mack, 23, and Fuquan Edwin, 23, both of Paterson, were among 13 people caught up in the prostitution sweep, the Passaic County Sheriff's Office said.
Passaic County Sheriff's Office spokesman Bill Maer said Mack and Edwin were in the same vehicle Friday evening when they allegedly offered to pay a law enforcement officer who was posing as a prostitute for sex. Mack was the passenger and Edwin was the driver, he said. Both men were charged with soliciting prostitution.
What an indictment of the basketball program at my alma mater. As if there weren't already enough signs that Rutgers had A LOT of work to do to be considered a contender in the Big Ten, now our best player for the last 4 years can't even get laid off his athletic resume? Myles Mack has been the sole reason to suffer through a Rutgers basketball game for as long as I choose to remember, and he can't even get free, consensual sex out of it? I thought that was the only benefit of playing basketball at Rutgers. It certainly isn't to gain notiriety or pursue a career in the sport. We are talking about a player that decided to stay even after Mike Rice beat him in dodgeball and called him a 'faggot'. Who would put up with that if they weren't, at the very least, swimming in the panties of horny co-eds after practice? You trying to tell me that Myles Mack loved the game that much? If that were true he would have picked a better basketball school than Rutgers. Jesus Christ, get it together Myles. You're giving our school a bad name. Frank Kaminsky is like the ugliest guy on the planet and he probably doesn't even have to open his eyes to wake up in some strange pussy. How can we achieve the level of success in the sport that Wisconsin has if our only player that was worth a damn is resorting to paying streetwalkers for sexual satisfaction? I bet we just lost half of our recruiting class off this news alone. This sad, pathetic mugshot just erased every productive thing he did on the basketball court during his time on the Banks. I highly doubt this story is what Mark Morrison had in mind when he wrote 'Return Of The Mack'.
At first I was inclined to blame Fuqua Edwin for this. You are only as responsible as those that you chose to associate with, and if you hang around with someone from Seton Hall long enough you are bound to flush your reputation down the toilet sooner or later. The exchange of money for shameful orgasms is undoubtedly more of a Seton Hall thing. However, the fact that these two were comfortable enough with each other to agree to getting a prostitute makes them both equally as guilty. Think about that for a second. Even if you wanted to go out with friends and compensate filthy women for being the canvas to your unborn children, who says it out loud?! There's a stigma that goes along with paying for sex. It's generally pretty frowned upon, especially amongst athletes in their early 20's. I would think soliciting a hooker is a one man operation. One of those things that you do and DON'T tell your friends about. You know when you watch a porn with an extremely questionable plot and you feel that wave of shame wash over you as soon as your done? Now imagine watching that porn with a friend. That's the equivalent. Two ex-college basketball players literally standing there facing each other with their dicks in their hands hating themselves. The bottom doesn't get much rockier than that. Everyone has their own vices, but if your vice is corner dwelling whores, then maybe it's best not to have company.
