Former NBA player Lorenzen Wright’s widower wasted damn near a million dollars in 10 months. Sherra Wright cashed out her ex husbands insurance policy after his death ….an unsolved murder to date. Lorenzen set up the insurance policy a few months before he died, to insure his kids financial future. Unfortunately a few months passed, and his decomposed body was found.
Sherra Wright was the policy holder and when she got her hands on the cash she burned right through it spending money on multiple cars, lawn care, a pool and lawyer fees in less than a year. I sure hope a little bit of that money was set aside for their 6 kids college funds smh.
A fool and their money shall soon part check out the list of things she purchased with that money.
Former Lakers coach Phil Jackson says he wouldn’t coach the Lakers if they were the last team standing, they’re just not championship material. Is somebody still mad that the Lakers offered the coaching position to Mike D’Antoni, a quick replacement after firing Mike Brown?
According to Tmz Phil Jackson says he doesn’t want to return to the Lakers organization … even if they ask him … and to make things worse, Phil told TMZ he doesn’t think the squad is championship material either.
Phil and his GF Jeanie Buss were out on a dinner date at Gjelina in Venice, CA last night … when we asked the Zen Master if he would be open to rejoining the team if things didn’t work out with the Lakers current head coach Mike D’Antoni.
But Jackson has made it clear the door is closed … and when we asked if he thought the Lake Show still had a shot at an NBA title this year, Jackson was brutally honest.
Mjj says, Phil Jackson need to cut it out, he knows damn well when the Lakers come knocking at his door again after they fire Mike D’Antoni, and you can bet your bottom dollar, that his future is looking mighty dim with the Lakers. Phil’s asz will gladly go.
Amar’e Stoudemire put his foot in his mouth on twitter this weekend. He decided to drop an anti gay slur directed at Brian Ferelli who provoked the Knick’s star by tweeting to Stoudemire “better come back a lot stronger and quicker to make up for this past season.
”Stoudemire responded with a “F— you! I don’t have to do any thing f–.” in a direct message, and now his response may have launched an investigation by the NBA, and to top it all off this happened during Gay pride weekend.
Ferrelli — known on Twitter as Knicks superfan “B ForReal!” — didn’t keep their covert exchange to himself.
He retweeted for public consumption a screen-save of Stoudemire’s direct message, including its anti-gay slur: “F— you! I don’t have to do any thing f–.”
Once Ferrelli’s tweet of Stoudemire’s derogatory comment became a trend topic on Twitter and blew up on the sports blog Deadspin.com, the player made a quick mea culpa.
“I apologize for what I said earlier. I just got off a plane and had time to think about it. Sorry bro!! No Excuses. Won’t happen again,” Stoudemire wrote in another direct message, which Ferrelli posted for all to see on Twitter.
The fan, Brain Ferrilli, has been asked for statements numerous times since this story broke, but says he doesn’t wish to embarrass Stoudemire any further.
“I don’t want to make this situation any bigger than it already is. He apologized and I accepted it,” Ferrelli told The News in a tweet.
If you remember, Amare isn’t the only NBA player to find himself in hot water behind an “f-bomb”
In 2011, NBA Commissioner David Stern fined Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant $100,000 for using the same homophobic word against a referee during a game.
Mediajuicejoint- Stoudemire should have used better judgement, however B ForReal had this planned from the beginning, and when yourbitchness didn’t like the comment and needed some attention he decided to save the direct message and put it on twitter blast……
Poor choice of words for Stoudemire, there’s some many other adjectives he could have used to describe yourbitchness and it wouldn’t have cost him a thing…….smh.
Miami Heat 2012 CHAMPIONS, they did it, I couldn’t sleep last night, like I just won the championship, middle finger to all the haters and the doubters……choke on that.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh knew what they were doing, they had their eyes on the prize. LeBron taking his talents to South Beach was the best thing ever, and I’m quite sure winning the championship is worth all the flack and criticism he succumbed to….
Tony Parker ain’t fooling nobody, he’s going after that big money, the insurance policy of the NYC club W.i.P. He’s suing the club for 20 million dollars because he suffered a scratched cornea which could jeopardize his career*side eye*, and the poor baby had to wear a therapeutic contact lens for 7 days and the only thing he could do was put drops in his eyes……Man The F*ck Up, with your exaggerated injury.
Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is suing a New York City club and its operators for $20 million over a scratched cornea he says he suffered during a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake’s entourage.
The suit was filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Thursday. It says the W.i.P club in SoHo and its operators were negligent in security and supervision, which allowed the fight to take place.
Chris Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were among eight injured during the fight inside the club last week. Police say members of Drake’s entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving. The fight escalated and bottles were thrown.
There was no answer at phone numbers listed as affiliated with those named in the lawsuit.
Mediajuicejoint-Drake and Chris Brown don’t think he’s not coming for y’all, Parker is in the middle of his 50 million dollar contract and he gone cry all day about his little scratched eye that healed up in 3 to 5 days……. best believe y’all gone damn sure make up the difference.
Y’all can Pray and Pray for Lebron’s downfall but, It ain’t gone happen. I’m trying to understand why all the hate, whether LeBron James wins the 2012 Championship or not, right now he is the BEST and most complete player in the NBA and has been one of the best players every year he has been in the league.
Whether James ever win a championship before his career is over, doesn’t even matter, he will still be a hall of famer. He will still be mentioned as one of the greatest that every played the game of basketball.
King James is in the prime of his career. Lebron still has a few more years to go, so don’t dig his coffin, he isn’t ready to lay in it yet. I’m not one of those fair weather fans. I am a true fan of the game. LeBron gets a bad rap from the fans. No one is perfect, Everyone makes mistakes, now you’s act like you can’t forgive him, he’s so hated over one mistake or because he said something someone didn’t consider appropriate smh.
No one in your life or life period is going to always say or do everything you like, does that mean you hate them all of a sudden. You have never heard anything bad about LeBron, or of him being in any trouble with the law. So, people grow the f*ck up, and get your panties out of a bunch. All this hate smells like racism or jealousy.
Any one that’s a true fan of basketball knows a talent like LeBron’s is good for the game. You know a player is great when they make other players they play against, play better ball and play more competitive. How many players give you their best day in and day out for nine years and counting. He has been to the NBA Finals 3 times in his career, a 3 time MVP of the League, and he has been an NBA All Star countless times……… and he’s still not done.
Don’t get me wrong Kevin Durant is a special player too. No doubt KD is a pure scorer, he can score from any where on the court. In his young career he is still not the complete and best player in the league. KD is working on it fast, but he is not there yet, but when he does watch out LeBron and Kobe.
Kevin and LeBron played in there first NBA Finals around the same amount of years of being in the NBA. The difference is, LeBron’s first NBA Finals appearance with the Cleveland Cavalier’s he didn’thave the supporting ensemble that KD have.
Lebron didn’t have the luxury of a talented point guard like Brain Westbrook as a second scorer option, or a six man off the bench as a third option scorer as James Harden nor did he have a ferocious shot blocker as Serge Ibaka or a scrappy veteran clutch championship guard as Derek Fisher. There was no solid physical center with a championship as Kendrick Perkins or a 6’9 shooting guard with the defensive intensity as Thabo Sefolosha.
Personally, without OKC team mates I know Kevin Durant couldn’t carry a team on his back alone, the way the King James has done. I rest my case.
Believe it or Not: Brooklyn Nets player Deshawn Stevenson puts an Atm machine in his kitchen so his baller friends can hit it up before they hit the strip club.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, however I choose to sum this one up with just one word………Bafoonery.
Rich people do crazy things with their money, like throw paper airplanes made of cash out the window at passersby. But we’ve never seen anything like this.
In a recently posted Instagram photo, it appears that NBA star DeShawn Stevenson grew tired of hunting down an ATM to withdraw cash and instead resorted to installing one in the comforts of his own kitchen.
We wonder: Is the Brooklyn Nets player — who earned over $26 million on the court as of 2010, according to USA Today — planning to charge his buddies a transaction fee for using the machine?
NBA player Derrick Rose has not changed because his lifestyle is enhanced by his multi million dollar status, he is one of the very few basketball sensations that has remained humble.
Derrick has the looks, the talent, and did I mention his looks, and the right attitude paired with sensible reasoning…. no wonder he’s Adidas 200 million dollars man.
The Chicago Bulls MVP player sits down and chats with GQ, about how it all began and how he’s determined to not let the fame and fortune go to his head
Derrick Rose on living in Trump Towers:
“I like living here,” he says. “They just try to make you comfortable. The people here, they are mostly from out of town; they don’t know who I am. That’s why I picked this place.” (It’s easy to understand why one would enjoy working in this building, too. When Rose orders two bottled waters for us during our chat, he hands the bellhop two $50 bills.) Presidents talk about how the White House begins to feel like a prison. Rose speaks the same way about the town that adores him. “It gets on my nerves that I just can’t go out,” he says. “It’s just boundaries now. People are like, ‘You can’t go here, you can’t go there, you got to let that person know where you’re going.’ It’s just weird. I’m never alone. Ever.”
On not speaking to the media after returning from injury:
“It was just too much,” he says. “I just couldn’t do it. I just couldn’t deal with it. There were so many people. I saw them there from the other room. And when I thought about having to go in there, I just couldn’t work my way up to it.” He pauses and takes a sip of water. His eyes go somewhere beyond my left ear. “There were so many of them. I hope they’ll forget about it.”
“Don’t get me wrong. I don’t take anything for granted,” he says. “But it seems like the better I play, the more attention I get. And I can’t get away from it. You play great, you get attention. But I hate attention. It is weird. I’m in a bind. The more you win, the more they come.”
On being talented since a young age:
“I was the best kid in my neighborhood at a young age,” he says. “My whole life. I was always the one everyone was talking about. I’ve never really wanted the attention, but it has always been there.”
On making smart decisions:
“I won’t ever put myself in a bad position so that people can say bad things about me,” he says. “I make smart decisions, and my friends and my family, they are all there for the right reason. I’m very mature for 23 years old, and I know that whatever I do can hurt someone.”
On being from Chicago:
Anytime his Englewood days come up, we return to the matter of Rose’s inner circle. He has an actual physical number of people he says he trusts most—ten. “There’s seven of us,” he says of himself and his oldest friends, plus his brothers and his mom. That’s it. “Longest I’ve known one of my friends is third grade. Most recent, seven years. They tell me the truth. They’re not yes-men.”
And even though the story of where he’s from is part of his lore, he estimates it’s been the better part of a year since he’s been in the old neighborhood. “I just remember being there my rookie year, going back and being parked outside my friend’s house,” he says. “All of a sudden everybody within a couple of blocks just came to where I was. It was crazy. I appreciated it. I felt good. But you’re not the same person, and that’s what you’ve got to realize.”
The problem now is that he’s not just a child of Englewood—the sentiment extends to the greater city, as well. “Sometimes it’s too much. Chicago…” He pauses. He is careful to say this just right. “Chicago isn’t used to stardom. Back when Michael was here, everyone was used to actors and singers and people being at the games. But there’s been a drought since then, and even celebrities, they’ll stop here to film a movie and then pop right back out. They don’t know how to act toward celebrity. So I always have someone with me. I can have a hat on, glasses on, whatever. People still notice me. If I go outside without a hat on, I feel like I’m naked.” Rose can have the entire world, as long as he doesn’t leave his home. “This life doesn’t fit my personality.”
Mediajuicejoint: Ladies Derrick Rose is definitely eye candy without the money, but 300 million + makes it more better……Ladies calm down and get yourself together, for more photos of the sexy 23 year old and to get the whole sense of who he is on and off the court
