Three Tortured Souls

In the mid-eighties Dwight Gooden, Mike Tyson and Darryl Strawberry were three of the biggest stars in New York. Flying high and on top of the world. Perhaps drugs and alcohol were the only things that could get them higher.

This photo saddens me. So young. So much promise. What’s shocking is that Tyson might now be the most grounded of the three.
