he's all in on his scam.



I thought his PTSD was triggering the back pain? Dude needs a lobotomy.


He's either a slimy scammer who never wanted to play basketball and is finally getting out or he has Munchausen syndrome, there's no logical reason why this is happening the way it is right now. :laff:

Reality?

Ben is a pro athlete....just about every pro has some issue that requires surgery. Back, fingers, shoulder, foot, knee etc. Some things can be managed and a player may not really need to get it fixed until they retire. Some shyt gotta be dealt with ASAP.

Ben doesn't wanna play. He lost his confidence and is scared to get back on the court. He wants that money but he's trying to delay playing as long as he can. He wants to "want" to play...but the "want" ain't there.

Yeah you have examples of people being successful after surgery as well I’m just saying what I hear people say about it

Think you're right.

My mom had back issues in her 40s but NEVER had surgery. She's almost 70 now and her back is probably better now than then.

My mother in law had back issues in her 40s/early 50s and has had multiple surgeries trying to correct it.
