"Person of Interest: Kwame Brown" by Jay Caspian Kang - Grantland.com

Hand to God? I did not read this. But Kang? Caspian Kang? Think it's just Kang, is a good writer and there's an interesting angle here. It's basically the first in a series of profiles of all the lunatics in the NBA.

Kwame Brown was the first pick in the NBA draft in like what? 2001? And then as far as I can recall Michael Jordan coached him on the Wizards and shattered his confidence wholly and ccompletely because Michael Jordan is not-so-sneaky a humongous asshole. And Kwame Brown's life sucked from there on out. One time he did leave a pair of Gucci sunglasses on the bar at the waterfront in DC and one of my dudes ended up with him. Not sure if he swiped them or found them or what but he wore them. He looked really stupid in them too because they were designed for giant black millionaires and not white college bros, but whatever, still kinda cool.
