When Lazar Hayward was growing up, he says he would “see some things,” but when he described them to his friends, their reaction was predictable. “Lazar, you might need some help.” The Minnesota Timberwolves forward has not let their skepticism dissuade him from trying to keep seeing those things — “spiritual things,” in his words — and while he was unsigned earlier this season, he spent that time tapping into the spiritual side. “I’ve actually touched into another piece of my life with some spiritual stuff, so it’s pretty good,” Hayward said while meeting with reporters on Monday. “I’ve been going to see some mediums. I’ve seen two and they both said the same things. I’ve actually been able to see a spirit when I’ve been in one of the meetings. I can’t talk to them yet, but I have seen them.” Pressed, Hayward clarified that he is still very much in the realm of the living, but he would not mind becoming a real-life version of Haley Joel Osment‘s character from The Sixth Sense. “There are people who can see and talk to spirits,” Hayward said. “I’ve actually had a friend who went there and they were able to speak with their brother who’s been dead for about six years now.” Far be it from us to question a guy’s spirituality, no matter how far-fetched it seems. Some of the craziest-sounding stuff sometimes turns out to be true.
