No one should have to go through all that, let alone someone who was once told he was gonna be so very big. Hope he gets his life turned around before he ends up dead in the street somewhere.
I have always said that I've no idea how so many of the guys, growing up treated like demi-gods, manage not to end up ruining their lives. On a level most of us mortals rarely think about it takes a freakish dedication to stay on course as a professional athlete.
Its a shame that he hasn't taken advantage of the many chances he's had to set his life straight.
It's a shame, but I don't feel sorry for him. From all reports, he was an a$$ since he was in college.
It's one thing to be gifted and rich and fall from grace because you aren't ready to handle all that that kind of world throws at you. I feel somewhat sorry for those who aren't ready for that and can't handle it.
It's another thing to be all of that and a bad person who doesn't treat others well. People learn how to treat others when they are children. You can be rich and talented and famous and still be a good person.
