After coming across some pictures, I seriously doubt Bernard's ability to ever mature or become more professional when his own 'team' engages in the same off-court behavior that only negatively affects his career. He has absolutely no proper guidance or positive influence around him regardless of whether or not his dad is around. How does he have any chance when the people hired to help him are actually partaking in activities that only hurt his career? Lost cause...
Agree - but if he can just do enough to hang in the top 100 until he matures, until full frontal lobe development takes place (hopefully) at say 25 years old, maybe he will be a chance.
His sponsors must be tearing their hair out.
