First Deaf NBA Basketball Player Lance Allred Cut
I just heard on the radio that Lance Allred, the first deaf NBA basketball player was cut by the Cleveland Cavaliers. We wrote about him in March when Lance was first signed by the Cavs and then later detailing his battle with bigotry and discrimination.
Lance is currently writing a book detailing his life growing up in a polygamist sect in Utah, and how he dealt with his hearing loss. We wish him the best of luck in signing with another team, or with whatever he chooses to do next.
