Is the controversy around the Portland Trailblazers head coaching hiring of former Detroit Pistons great Chauncey Billups justified? We also dive into Detroit Lions training camp attendance for fans and Tom Izzo at the Rocket Mortgage Classic!

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin, Al sounds-off on the controversy surrounding the Chauncey Billups Portland Trailblazers head coaching hire, which stems from a sexual assault allegation back in 1997. We comb through the details and also address how the Trailblazers have handled the uproar. Also, Tom Izzo participated in the Area 3-1-3 Celebrity Golf Scramble yesterday at the Rocket Mortage Classic. Al tells of how nervewrecking this can be, as well as dives into the start of Detroit Lions training camp and a few dates fans need to mark down. That, and so much more on this busy Wednesday!
