Mike Paczesny | The Rundown Live

I always liked Larry Sanders , and I have respect for his choice to walk away from the life most of us dream about. He took a chance on himself, most people are unwilling to take.

Most people don’t know this about me but growing up in the Milwaukee area I am a huge Bucks fan, and I follow the professional basketball team closely.

One of the most exciting players that caught my eye the last few years was a guy named Larry Sanders, he seemed to have potential to be one of the great players of the league.

Over the last year there was a lot of controversy surrounding Larry Sanders, and he actually ended up leaving the team over “personal reasons”.

Here’s Larry Sanders on why he’s turning down a career in the NBA, how the lifestyle changed him, and how he had to find himself.

Some of his reasons include, limited free speech, and use of cannabis.
