The Minnesota Timberwolves’ guard Lazar Hayward is most known for his days at Marquette – ALL Big East, honorable mention, and all american. He led Marquette to 4 NCAA tournament berths. Today Hayward has been shopped around the NBA, so far 3 NBA teams. The Star Tribune just broke a story that the former Marquette standout can see spirits of dead people. Hayward told the Star-Tribune that he’s worked with two LA mediums who have guided him on a spiritual quest dating back to his boyhood.
“I’ve always just had a lot of questions spiritually because I always kind of seen stuff when I was a kid and I used to tell friends and they’d look at me and say, ‘Lazar, you might need some help,’ ” he said laughing during a surreal post- practice conversation with reporters. “So they used to make fun of me. I just had a lot of questions because I’ve always just wondered.”
Hayward has a friend, who by using the same mediums, is able to communicate with a brother who’s been dead for about 6 years.
“I’ve actually been able to see a spirit,” Hayward said. “I can’t talk to them yet, but I have seen them.”
“I’ve spent the past two months pursuing a path of meditation and spiritual healing and living in an enlightened state” while also waiting for a road back to the NBA.
“I think it helps me cope with some of the things that go on in basketball and just in life,” he said. “It really, really helps me a lot.”
Hayward’s been in L.A. working hard, running six miles a day waiting for his NBA return. Wish the best for the guy.
