They have a life that a lot of us dream about and aspire for. Why do so many wad it up and throw it in a trash can? Pitiful.
For the reasons you stated in the first paragraph. Because of their athleticism, they were allowed to get away with things others weren't. In high school. In college. In the pros. So of course they don't always mature and stop doing stupid things or being around stupid people. Why would they? They have been able to get away with those things for a long time now because they can do things with a ball that most people can't.
