My initial response is, "what in the world were they thinking??" I thought it was ridiculous that his parents traveled for every game and QUIT THERE jobs to watch him play. I'm shocked. They show up at his workouts and practices? To me, this is terrible and makes the drug addiction almost more explainable. This kid's life was dominated by his parents and their expectations.
I REALLY want to know how involved they have been in his life the last 4 years.
