Give the man a break. He is in a terrible situations.

Hell, i shouted out a few words in amazement when i found his location as far as playing, but I found out the circumstances and can only hope he gets through it.

I've said before that Griffin has problems, but IMO he is doing the right thing now by getting help. Life can be nasty at times and very hard to deal with, especially for a young man, and I am glad Griffin is getting the help he needs.
Agreed, and also with the NBA Lifestyle. The NBA traveling, Money, women, does not cater to a mental issue.

I couldn't imagine living the NBA lifestyle... Its hard enough being a college student... but to have money, groupies, and get to travel?! I'd fall off so quick people would be calling me the biggest bust ever. I love basketball, but fast women and fast livin' is tough to turn down.
