I seriously doubt he has thrown his future in the NBA away. The league is full of thugs who have done as bad or worse.

With good behavior he’s probably out in a year plus and then on to making millions and being able to be a criminal with impunity.

It wasn’t always like this. Hell I remember it was a freakin’ scandal when a ballplayer got a divorce back in the day.

Street cred - it’ll add millions to his franchise.

He will have plenty of time to perfect his free throw shooting.

The sports casters will love to report every time he comes to the line that his near 100% accuracy comes from total concentration during the continuous practice sessions while in prison where he turned his life around.

Sadly, you’re correct about the NBA and the criminal element. I was thinking more along the lines of Farmer missing out on key development time for his physical skills - i.e. he’ll be an out-of-practice high school player when he gets out at 21 or 22 and probably won’t have the same prospects as before. He might still find a college that will take him, but there are probably age limits there as well.

At any rate, whether he’s ended his basketball prospects or not, I’ve got zero sympathy for a woman-beating felon.
