    We as humans should never bash anyone for anything because we don’t know what they’re going through!

    Makes me wonder why SAS bashed Kwame Brown from a basketball perspective on National TV?

    Fans have no idea what these HUMAN-BEINGS go through on a daily basis. Y’all sit on the internet and slander these people and sometimes their families for no reason, and often it’s the littlest thing that pushes them over the edge when they’re already going through terrible situations. It’s a real shame.
