Harvard too; among the youngest people ever to be asked to give a lecture like that, in the modern age anyway. The guy has the horses.
He has a real seeker streak in him, though; when they asked him a few years ago what he was reading, he said The Egyptian Book of the Dead
, which sent my antennae up.
He’s into planets and their effects on us too. Nothing wrong with that at all, and it’s not as uncommon as some think. but it can take people in a couple different directions. Some of them could suck for a basketball team.
Like, Kyrie isn’t a basketball problem because he’s an idiot, he’s a basketball problem because he’s a self-involved fuckhead.
Like, I still can’t believe he walked out before the final buzzer. I know my way around some of these areas, as some here know, and from a basketball perspective, I’m far less concerned with the content of his beliefs—I’m not sure Tom Brady even knows we have a government, and that went really well for me as a fan—as if he falls into rabbit holes that lead to self-indulgent fuckery, which is a thing that can happen. He’s an extremely focused and intense guy, though, and I think some of his other interests can keep him out of those traps and, if you will, his eye on the ball.
