8. Lawrence Taylor: Thought About Cocaine During Games
It confounds many who have been his devoted fans how Lawrence Taylor managed to be on crack and have other substance abuse, yet continue playing for the New York Giants. His addiction to crack goes back to his rookie years and then he went on to hit the circuit as a full blown crack addict. He said in an interview that while in a huddle he seemed to focus less on the game and more on the time when he would be smoking crack after the game. He not only won two Super Bowls but also went on to win ten Pro Bowls. Had he not been on crack, this player’s amazing talent and craft could have made him history’s greatest.
