..in a lot of ways.

This documentary shows it.

The problem is that everything isn't really being addressed. Being a celebrity athlete brings the spotlight but it also helps give a pass to things that most people would be forced to reconcile with.

He's been through quite a bit of therapy, but its clear he has a lot to unpack and deal with, from almost every stage of his life.


I'm not excusing his behavior with Jermaine (or anyone else), but I certainly understand the nature of their distance and how Artest might not fully understand the magnitude of his own actions.

He's like Jekyll & Hyde.

I hope he keeps getting help.
