FBI sting into college basketball brings back memories of Columbus Parks and Rec probe

What police were investigating was fraud in the Parks and Rec Department connected to an elite AAU basketball team coached by Tony Adams, with Herman Porter as his primary talent scout. Nike, the ubiquitous shoe and apparel empire, was at the center of the investigation because of a contract the Oregon-based company had with Adams and Porter to field an AAU basketball team. Adams and Porter denied the existence of the contract until a copy of it was found in the city computer system.
