    They probably are as they are trying to trade away their star players for potential

    Watching the Celtics hammer out their price for letting Doc coach the Clippers reminds me of the Pistons doing the same when LB left.

    Oh that's right, they just called him a couple of names and let him go for nothing. Savvy.

    Awesome headline!
    I like the fact that he "can't afford a cheesburger" but drives a Maybach.

    200 million dollars! How does a person "blow" that much money?

    It's documented in the movie 10 million cheeseburgers and a Maybach.

    Government takes half. Agent takes 10%. You're down to 80 million right there. Probably gave away 10-20 million to friends and family, in the form of houses, gifts, cars, jewelry, and spending money (travel, restaurants, hotels, you know he picked up every check). You know that he's spent at least a few million on cars for just he and his wife. She probably has a few million in jewelry. Probably 5-10 million on houses, at least half of which his wife now owns. I have little doubt that he has a six figure alimony/child support bill, per month. Top it off, the money he had left he had to split with his ex-wife, who conveniently divorced him as soon as his earning days were done.

    That right there should leave him broke. If you add in gambling a few million dollars, then he probably IS broke. He's keeping the Maybach because it's paid for.

    T-Mac comes close to getting a ring and will blame Popovich for not putting him in the game in place of Genobli in crunch time in both games 6 and 7.
