Krop High Basketball Scandal: Where in the World Does Brian Delancy Live?

Categories: Sports

So we finally reached Bernard Wright, the sketchy high school recruiter and legal guardian of disqualified-and-then-reinstated Dr. Michael Krop High guard Brian Delancy. This is what he had to say: "Don't you ever fucking call this number again. You're a fucking scum bag and if I ever fucking catch you near me, you're going to regret it. You better lose this fucking number."

Click.

Threatening phone calls are how reporters know they're getting warmer.

Coach Shakey Rodriguez's dream team did away with Carol City last night, as expected, and remains the favorite to win the state championship. But Krop's title will be tainted.

We're not referring to the immigration paperwork snafu. The real question, as we see it: Where the hell does Brian Delancy live?

His guardian Wright, according to public records, has lived in Hialeah for the last seven years, in the American High school zone. We pulled a 2008 traffic ticket he received for running his black Jaguar through a stop sign. Note the Hialeah address.

But according to digital records kept by the Miami-Dade Public School System, Delancy doesn't live with Wright. At the beginning of the season, Delancy's address was listed as 21110 Northeast 9th Avenue. That sure sounds like it would be in the school zone of Krop High, which is located on County Line Road near Aventura.

One problem: there's no such address. We checked it out ourselves. It confused the hell out of our GPS, but 9th Avenue just doesn't stretch that far North.

Amid the recent brouhaha, Delancy's address was apparently changed. It's now listed as 915 Northeast 213 Terrace, a convenient few blocks away from the school. We drove there too. It's a gated apartment complex, although Delancy hadn't listed an apartment number. The security guard at the gate helpfully informed us that no Delancys, or Bernard Wright, live there.

The Florida High School Athletic Association is stumped by the same question. "The interesting thing about that," the association's executive director Dr. Roger Dearing told us, "is that we tried to get the school to tell us where he lives under oath, and it took us asking three times. Finally, they said he lives primarily with his mother."

Wait-- doesn't his mom live in the Bahamas? "That's another good question," said Dearing. "Apparently, she was living here, but she moved to the Bahamas. All I can say is it's a good question."

When we told him of our other concerns, such as the non-existent addresses, Dearing just sighed. "Usually when there's smoke, there's fire," said Dearing. "There's something going on with this kid."

Sucks for North Miami and Carol City High Schools, and anybody else that gets knocked out before Krop is inevitably disqualified.

Wow! Interesting. Central wins a state championship with players from BTW, and Miami Springs and they get a parade. Miramar wins with players from Dade County(Carol City) and they get a parade. Krop wins and you rain on their parade. Recruiting is what every winning high school program in the nation does to win. Is it illegal yes! However, private schools are allowed to do it year in and year out.

Thats not all thats rotten at Krop. Remember the Nunyez issue from June 2010...Principal and ESE Chair are still at work - not suspended as reported by the Miami Herald. School adminsitration and ESE department are disfunctional and need to be replaced.

The address for Bernard Wright is actually a gas station...unless he lives in that weird house that sits all by itself there.

Someone is upset because this "dream team" is beating their kids school... Instead of being happy to see a way out for this kid they want to destroy what little he has. Leave him alone, Shame on the New Times for publishing this info... Who really cares anyways?

You know, this kid probably did what many of us did back in high school when our home school was too ghetto or too posh or just not to our liking: Give the school a fake address/your tia's address or God knows what.Stop cramping his style!

kropstinks, you are 10,000% correct. The entire administration needs to be replaced and the issue with mrs. nunez, dr. welker, and ms. rubinowitz needs to be the topic of the community and not the BS that is going on with this basketball player. This kid either needs to help the school with the issue or drop it and the issue with nunez needs to be brought up and the punishments need to be followed, regardless of whether or not school is in session or not.

The only reason this is a dream team cause just like Miami Heats they RECRUIT! Recruitting is not only unethical in high school it is ILLEGAL. Look at their associates and players on the Miami Tropics. The schools they were associated with were disqualified because of the same problem. Miami High with Shaky Rodriguez and Bernard Wright and Frank Martin. Then Miami Christian with Arturo Alvarez (Miami Tropics) Look up Mr. Bernard Wright and his past of criminal doings. How can this man be a guardian to any child. And when in high school if you wanted to use tia's address at least she existed. These kids are here without their family members, how did most of these kids get in? And about the Judge, being a criminal and Immigration attorney (Cuban boy Elian's lawyer)defending illegals in the country the Judge should have excused himself from this case. But not even going there, no one knows who Brian Delancy, Angel Rodriguez or Trevin Joseph live with or where. Who else on the team has false addresses? Three players with mysterious addresses. Doesn't this mean automatic disqualification. Delancy's legal guardian, Bernard Wright where does he live? Where does he work? Who sponsors all these children to come complete elite teams the way the CLA Hawks was composed of kids from Africa, Nigeria, Bahamas, etc., before it closed for lack of funds. All under Coach Bernard Wright. Who by the way has a criminal past and outstanding violations still not paid to date. Lack of funds of human trafickking of athletes. Shaky you should have backed down and taken this as a loss now this is not going to go away as Miami High and FIU did. This is going to bite you exactly where it hurts. Fraudulent affidavits, fraudulent school records, what else? Oh the 30 day suspension of Krop's Principal for what, misappropriation of funds. What's the matter you needed the money to fund illegal players on you team? ILLEGAL and criminal sanctions should be imposed.
