Easily duped. By his parents.
His parents bought the house because they had power of attorney. And the SEC hasn't exactly done a great job of protecting the US economy, let alone one guy.
I do agree that firing his agent and not replacing him was a giant mistake. His parents, teammates, friends all should've been pointing that out to him. He sounds naive. I guess I just don't judge a 25 year old kid in that situation harshly for trusting his parents. It'd be a different story if he blew it all himself on houses, cars, etc.
Agreed yeah it was a mistake but nobody in his right mind would believe that your own family is taking 15 million $ and turn it into nothing. Sad story indeed at least now he fill find out who his real friends are nice to see that the Jackets are standing behind him also.
