At least Detroit Mayor (and former Pistons all-star) Dave Bing is honest and is working to improve his city. Chicago's mayor is one of the country's most dishonest politicians and hiring a puppet like “Charley” McCarthy as police superintendent certainly doesn't help.
Dave Bing is an old School democrat and self made man. In fact he was awarded some type of minority entrepreneur award by Ronald Reagan.
Back in his NBA days they didn’t make big bucks. I think the highest paid year of his career he only made some $27,000. When a Detroit bank turned him down for a loan, he didn’t run to the NAACP, he went to work for the bank and earned the money.
