Why not investigate every NBA lottery pick?

It's beyond ridiculous how media is going nuts about USC being out of control and not focusing on the greater picture - the mess created by NBA, NFL, and NCAA in order to make as much money as possible from every revenue channel.

Before anyone calls me Mayo apologist, I believe with 90-95% confidence that what ESPN said was true. I believe Mayo has taken money (whether knowingly or unknowingly that it is coming from BDA) during his HS and first year at USC. But is he the only one doing it? We are already seing reports circulating in MSM that another player was signed by a certain agency after investing "3 years and 500,000".

It's ridiculous how MSM blatantly decides to ignore red flags raised all over the country by the top prospects living beyond their means. Here is Mar-11 article from Washington Post about Beasley. I am curious about the following paragraph:

As technicians work to fix the audio, the familiar cell phone buzz emanates from the right pocket of Beasley's black Adidas pants.

"All cell phones off please," the camerawoman says.

Out of Beasley's pockets come four devices: an iPhone, a T-Mobile Sidekick, a Verizon LG phone and a Sprint BlackBerry. The static disappears, and he conducts the interview.

The number of phones is emblematic of Beasley's life as he enjoys one of the best seasons ever by a freshman and his Kansas State team stands on the cusp of its first NCAA tournament appearance in 12 years.

So please explain me how a college student can afford 4 expensive cell phones? Why no investigative reporting here? So far, I could only find 1 news outlet that actually commented on Beasley's 4 phones

It's easy to be a hater and blindly accuse a rival or despised college of cheating or wrongdoing. But it takes some brains and time to figure out that something must be wrong with the system.
