Ten years has not softened the bitterness in Sam Mitchell's voice or his heart. The former Timberwolves forward, a member of the NBA franchise's inaugural team in 1989-90, continues to struggle with the circumstances that led to the car crash that killed teammate and close friend Malik Sealy on a suburban Minneapolis highway on May 20, 2000.

that little shit in jail is a moron and I can't believe he's driven hammered since. No wait yes I can. If he kills someone else any judge that has dealt with should be jailed until they explain why he didn't have an ignition breathalizer installed.

I donT know the answer but we have to get drunks off the roads. I hope the ignition breathalizer help, but I'm skeptical. My sense is they'll just get another vehicle and drive on. Malik's story is so sad and just one of many.

Why not automatic jail for the first offense, judges no ability to modify.

I'm sure that DUI laws vary but this is a somber reminder that repeat offender should be treated severely.

I remember that huge 3 pointer that Sealey made in the last couple seconds of a home game that gave the T-wolves the win. It was one of the biggest moments in the teams history. The place erupted. We started to actually think the team had a chance to get good. what a sad, sad, tragedy. RIP. It even saddens me, and I was just a fan.

As long as Minnesota's politicians are in bed with and getting money from the distiller and brewers' lobbyists we will never get as strong laws as other states have. The payoffs are just too good.
