JIM VALVANO: WHEN FAME IS A TWO-EDGED SWORD.

Posted on: July 30, 2014

In 1988, Peter Golenbock wrote “Personal Fouls” in which he stated that North Carolina State players’ grades were fixed by Coach Valvano, positive drug tests were kept secret, and players received money, cars, etc., from a special fund. He also maintained that Valvano looked the other way when star player Charles Shackleford was allowed to steal teammates’ sneakers and sell them without being punished. As a result of Golenbock’s book, the chancellor of the university was forced to resign and Valvano was stripped of his athletic directorship. And there’s a reason why shortly thereafter Valvano was diagnosed with cancer. When I was associated with the R.A. Bloch Cancer Support Center in Kansas City, Missouri, co-founder Richard Bloch (H&R Block) was convinced there was a direct correlation between stress and illness. And Jim Valvano was an excellent example. Had he not been famous, and was just a high school basketball coach somewhere, he probably would still be alive today.
