However, it probably doesn't help that the hospital where the 36 year old recovered from his health crisis recently spoke out against the American athlete's drinking antics.
A source at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center added:
We still can't believe it!

The 37-year-old explained:
"I try to have at least 15 minutes of still time and just kind of sit in my thoughts in the morning and just kind of meditate..And normally what happens with me is my mind would always drift to the game. Always."
In fact, this meditation process helped the athlete make his difficult choice to leave behind his basketball career.
