  • Clip from HBO’s 'Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel' on Kevin Johnson accusers

    On HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel,” Mandi Koba said she has blamed herself for years for keeping silent on molestation accusations. If she had spoken out, she said, she perhaps could have prevented other girls and women from being victimized. Koba accused Johnson of molesting her in 1996, when she was 16 and he was playing for the Phoenix Suns.

About This Blog


Hello, my name is Marcos Bretón, and I'm the news columnist with The Sacramento Bee. What’s a columnist supposed to do? I’m supposed to make you think, make you laugh, make you mad or make you see an issue in a different way. I also write a weekly baseball column during the baseball season. I am a native of Northern California and the son of Mexican immigrants. I’ve been at The Bee for more than 20 years, and I love Sacramento.
