It depends on the players to figure out whats best for them by listening to the right people

Really? One year in college can do wonders for some or it might not help at all. You even say it depends on the players listening to the right people. Sometimes that starts in college. The NBA might be too advanced and stressful for some. Having a year college with coaches who are experts with youth can be beneficial.

The chick who identified herself as his girlfriend looks pretty good from what I can see.

I am sure she'll evict him from her cooter once he loses his house. It will be back on the market.

I remember him and I thought him and KD would flourish together but from my understanding, he's a project player. He was only drafted because he was a 7 footer.

He was just another one of those kids that was 7 foot tall and was influenced by And1 mixtapes. He could dunk and moved very well for a 7 footer.

Too bad things didn't pan out. He was on the rise till his injury.

Ever since I started getting into basketball (1991-1992), 7 footer projects have always been been existent in the league. Experts and fans alike would marvel at the "potential" this 7 footer one day will turn out like. He will block shots, be an offensive threat in the low block, be a great passer in the high post, be an anchor on defense, and his team will win countless championships.

Most of them do NOT pan out. Off the top of my head, I'd estimate 85% will NOT.

Surprised she didn't do that once he lost his spot in the Japanese league.

I don't understand with all that money he could have paid off that house in no time.

It looks like a normal crib and not these extravagant cribs that you see other players with.

players don't make as much as people think. their contract is basically immediately cut in half by taxes, then agent fees, other hanger on fees they may have like publicist, financial adviser (hope Swift didn't pay a guy for that), whatever. so if Swift got paid $20 mil in his career his take home would be under 10. no idea what he did with his cash but buy some dumbass cars, a couple failed business ventures (quit investing in restaraunts athletes), you'd be surprised how quick you can burn through money if you're stupid. I can imagine the flat out ignorant stuff I'd have done getting 6 digit paychecks at 18 years old.
