The Big Leagues: NBA Rookie Camp
This whole read is amazing/horrifying. Some extracts:

in the section on financial planning, the players were told to recite the words “I don’t want to go broke” aloud; soon it became a chant, with some of them clapping along. 

Also:

To deter the rookies from partaking, there was a slide show juxtaposing photographs of beautiful semi-clad women with photographs of hideously diseased genitalia. There was also a handout listing how much child support the rookies would be required to pay in various states, should they find themselves in sudden possession of a child after a one-night stand. “It was disturbing,” said Tyler Ennis, 20, a freshman star at Syracuse University who was drafted to play for the Phoenix Suns.

And:

As much as the players need to learn how to deal with their money, so do their parents need to learn how to deal with their suddenly superrich sons. In a prelude to the Rookie Transition Program, some families attended a seminar on that very topic during June draft week in New York. The N.B.A. played video from the reality television show “Mom’s Got Game” featuring Pamela McGee, the mother and business manager of JaVale McGee, whose contract with the Denver Nuggets is worth $44 million over four years. In the clip, JaVale is shown eagerly going to a car dealership with some friends. After his mother arrives, he tells her he wants to buy a $433,500 Maybach. She throws a huge bucket of cold water on the idea. “First of all, it’s a MY-bach,” she says, correcting his pronunciation. And then she snaps: “This ain’t how we spend our money.” The attending parents were advised to help provide similar reality checks. “If you see him coming home looking like Mr. T from the 1980s” — dripping with bling — “tell him to bring the stuff back,” one speaker said.

Quote reblogged from teen sniper. with 9,997 notes

I’ve spent most of my life and most of my friendships holding my breath and hoping that when people get close enough they won’t leave, and fearing that it’s a matter of time before they figure me out and go.
