Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James has joined the chorus speaking out against the NCAA. Addressing the recent FBI investigation into corruption throughout college basketball, James said the NCAA is a "corrupt" organization. "The NCAA is corrupt, we know that," he told reporters. "Sorry, it's going to make headlines, but it's corrupt." James also discussed the argument that student-athletes get a free education for playing sports: "I don't know all the rules and regulations about it. But I do know what 5-star athletes bring to a campus, both in basketball and football. I know how much these college coaches get paid. I know how much these colleges are gaining off these kids. ... I've always heard the narrative they get a free education. But you guys aren't bringing me on campus to get an education. You guys are bringing me on it to help you get to a Final Four or to a national championship."
