“They don’t give a shit about none of that.”
Fact check: true!
Ben is a 20-something millionaire, and so you can’t really blame the guy for dating a supermodel or a British TV “presenter” or buying a Los Angeles mansion. But when his evolution as a player stagnates and he’s bringing to the court the same offensive game of four seasons ago, then fans begin to grumble and wonder what’s going on. His floor was incredibly high when he entered the NBA, but the ceiling seems to be at the same height as the floor, which is very strange. He’s gotta take the next step, whether it’s here or somewhere else.
