A friend said he's lighting it up at a YMCA men's league. He also said he's found God again.

I don't think there's anything Jabari can do to get back into the NBA ever again.

I haven't heard any other news on the subject since September, I think. From what I understand the NBA is investigating and the Celtics will follow the league's lead on punishment but there's also the trial still waiting to happen?

What a bad situation. I just don't know how you weight the seriousness of the charges against having some kind of compassion for someone who sounds like he might really be mentally ill but if he's dangerous that has to be addressed too but is the punishment of losing the only way he can make a livelihood the right thing? I don't know.

Maybe he should learn to pitch. The Astros might sign him.

it's not even close to the only way he can make a livelihood. I can name at least a hundred ways b4 I even get into the thousands he's made in one season already.

The NBA is not Bird's only way of making a livelihood.  People aren't entitled to be millionaires.

You're right. That's an exaggeration.
