Well, he was a small town kid. That's really the mentality we're brought up with - when you're finished with HS, time to go to work right away. If you happen to go to college, you come back when you're done and follow the path of your parents. So I'm not surprised by him wanting to do that stuff when he was done with basketball.
Being naive to the real world can be really **** when leave your small town. Youre brought up thinking people are genuinely nice and look out for one another. You don't have exposure to how **** up and **** people are until you leave your small town.
It doesn't excuse what he did. And I'm surprised he hasn't been exposed as much as others
