I just saw the preview clips for the next ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, “Without Bias” about the death of the late Len Bias. For fans of Maryland or the Boston Celtics and anyone who was about the age of 20-25 at the time like I was can remember this incident as if it were yesterday. Drafted in 1986 by the Celtics, Bias died after using cocaine during a celebration in his frat house room. I recall being totally shocked to see this strong, young athlete dying all of a sudden. These things were not supposed to happen. The documentary looks into the events leading into Bias’ death as well as the impact.
I have the preview DVD and I look forward to bringing you a review early next week.
We have two preview clips. First, this looks at the death of Len.
Then, this powerful clip reviews the fateful night of Len’s death.
Director Kirk Fraser has intertwined historical news footage with present interviews and this looks like one of the stronger documentaries of the 30 for 30 series. “Without Bias” premieres Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.
