Should NBA players be allowed to continue to play while they have a pending court case?

  • They are innocent until proven guilty.

    Yes, I think they should be allowed to continue to play. People are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. As long as the case is only pending, and they have not been convicted, they should not be pre-punished for something they may not even have done.

  • Innocent until proven guilty

    It is one of the first cornerstone's of justice that people are taught when young, that people are innocent until proven guilty. Just because these players have a pending case, it does not mean that their lives and livelihood should be swept out from underneat them for being involved in a possible accusation.

  • Yes They Should

    I believe NBA players should be allowed to continue to play while they have a pending court case. A pending court case is not proof of guiltiness and I think as a country, we need to remember that it's innocence until proven guilty. Cutting these players off from their jobs prematurely is a huge mistake.

  • No they should not.

    NBA players should not be allowed to continue to play when they have pending court cases as they are currently being investigated for some sort of issues and should not be allowed the satisfaction or the right to make money and be on live national television until said case is either dismissed or punished.

  • NBA Players Are Role Models

    While a pending court case on a traffic ticket should not stop a person from playing, when professional sports figures are caught up in serious offenses, they should spend their time focusing on their court case. Youngsters look up to professional basketball players and aspire to be like them. This means that these players need to uphold high standards of behavior. Part of their contracts should include wording to this effect, that if they are involved in criminal proceedings, that they cannot play on the court.
