The Dwyane Wade of Sportswriting

Sports Illustrated senior writer Scott Price discusses his Sportsman of the Year subject Dwyane Wade, layoffs at SI, the Duke lacrosse case, and baseball in Cuba.

Dwyane Wade's numbers in the NBA Finals were one of the principal reasons he was named Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year in 2006. He was everywhere, averaging 39.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 2.5 steals per game. You could say S.L. Price (the "S" is short for Scott) was assigned the article due to his similar role as jack of all trades for SI. Price has written for the magazine about baseball, football, the Olympics (winter and summer), tennis, basketball, lacrosse, and even Iraq war veterans.

Nice interview. Writing about the Duke Lacrosse Rape Hoax on 2/21/07, K.C. Johnson cites this article. Price flubbed Zamost's good questions here ("Duke lacrosse was a trainwreck" and "mistakes were made" but nobody in journalism need set anything straight). Johnson highlights Price's careless reference to a pro-Hoax law prof in his latest S.I. profile of Duke's lacrosse program.

Too bad, really.
