Ex-Cleveland Cavs star Daniel “Boobie” Gibson says he was in a suicidal place after a series of personal issues around 2014 … but writing music saved his life.
His ankle was messed up. His marriage was falling apart. And his grandmother died … and Gibson said he got to a place where “being alive wasn’t something I wanted anymore.”
“I was just hit with a flurry of events,” Gibson told Dime Magazine … “Mentally, It just took away my ability to work out. I was suffering from depression and anxiety.”
“Honestly, basketball was my sanctuary, but I couldn’t even do that … I really got to the point where being alive wasn’t something I wanted anymore.”
Gibson says he just “started writing” music … “about how I felt, what I wanted to feel like, what I wanted to accomplish, and it all just kept me going.”
“It — along with my son — basically saved my life.”
Gibson says he’s in a MUCH better place now and is even considering an NBA comeback. At the same time, his music career is blowing up … he’s working with big stars like Chris Brown & Wiz Khalifa.
