Sean Bradley admitted that he thought of committing suicide after a bike crash that paralyzed him below the chest.

Bradley, a former center for the Sixers, Mavericks and Nets, told Sports Illustrated about how he and his family are struggling with paralysis.

While he made nearly $ 70 million in his NBA playing career, the financial and emotional costs of the accident are staggering.

No matter how hard it is for anyone to be paralyzed, it’s even harder for Bradley – he’s 6 feet bigger than the average person. He needed a £ 500 wheelchair, which took months to assemble.

On the night of his meeting with his wife, Kerry, he was asked to travel to the cinema in advance to make sure he could fit a wheelchair of that size. Getting him into their van was another struggle, and he stared at his popcorn and sparkling water.

“I loved him and he was so happy,” she said, “so I never want to tell her [it was exhausting]”.

Shawn Bradley admitted that living with paralysis led him to very dark places.

At home, she helps him eat and bathe. The curve of learning about Bradley’s new reality was rough for all of them – and took the former NBAer to some dark spots.

“I don’t know how to lighten my load,” Bradley said. “It simply came to our notice then. Yes, these ideas come in and they are true. I can’t imagine myself following such ideas, but I have them. “

Bradley also said it’s hard to be around people in their former lives like Dirk Novitsky and Mark Kuban and see them in their current state.

“People who are very close to me, when they see me for the first time, it’s very exciting,” Bradley said. “It dries out a lot of water.”
