    Ok, love this site, and there are plenty of people interested in this kind of thing, while others find it excessive or even disgusting how much people make playing basketball.

    But right now with people facing uncertainty in their own finances, with people being laid off and worrying if the government is going to give $1,000 stimulus checks to everyone or just bail out corporations, it’s probably not the best time for a story about how a 20 year old is spending 1 million dollars. Just saying, it’s kind of insensitive by both GQ and this blog and isn’t going to do Herro any favors with fans.

    Wow. I was literally coming to say the same thing, Han.

    Yay for Tyler, but poor timing.

    Good for him! He’s worked his ass off to earn his pay and I respect that.

    How much did he pay his financial adviser for that advise? Very poor timing considering the financial situation facing millions of families due to events of the past two weeks.

      You must be a hit at parties. Or funerals. Definitely one of those.
