He just had to be smart about it but couldn't.
The only drug that sours me on a player is the performance enhancing kind. Players are just men. Some are devoutly religious and live perfect lives, others are complete garbage and borderline insane. Spectrum is filled in between with incredible players. You start basing a players greatness on their personal life and I think you're drifting into an area that is a bit unfair.
