I suppose anybody can be broke! Three-time Pro Bowl corner back Chris McAlister(notes) has only been out of the game for a year, and already, he's telling the court system that he's broke.
McAlister is locked up in a child support battle with his ex-wife Marlene, and is trying to get his child support payments lowered. He currently owes her $11,000 per month. In documents filed to the court, claims he can't pay her because he doesn't have any money. From TMZ:
He has been out of the game only one year and he is already broke....am wondering who he is listening to or what goes on in his mind. Money has wings and it can fly....you had better believe it.In 2004, he signed a seven-year, $55 million contract.He was released after five years of the contract, even though it is impossible to say he completely squandered $55 million.
He has a serious partying Habit and it is clear he did squander plenty. The signing bonus was reportedly $10 million, and it also included a $7.5 million for 2005. The year before he signed the contract, he made almost $6 million. The last two years of the $55 million contract. That is a lot of money.
Or .....is He saying the truth? is he really broke? Hmmmmm.
Lewis Brown, Faded Basketball Prodigy dies Homeless....Hmm! that is really a sad end. What went wrong? He reportedly died on the same street he lived...really sad.He has been living on the sidewalks for the past 10 years. He was 56, a former high school and college basketball prodigy.
" The NY Times reported:"That was on Tuesday. But Wednesday, around 6 a.m., Mr. Brown, breathless and frantic, was pleading for someone to call an ambulance. By the time help arrived, Mr. Brown — 300 pounds, 6 feet 11 inches — was lying on the ground. A half-hour of efforts by four paramedics — as his neighborhood friends shouted: “Come on, Big Lew! You can make it” — could not save him.
For Mr. Brown — a star high school center who once seemed destined for a spot in the N.B.A. — all that was left on Thursday was a Staples shopping cart carrying a few of his possessions: a pair of sneakers, a blanket, a laminated copy of a New York Times article from this year that detailed his sad story of decline, bitterness, drug arrests and missed opportunities. The remainder of his belongings — a mattress, some tattered clothes — had been put into a Dumpster.
Throughout the day, people who had known Mr. Brown, 56, from the neighborhood, where he would wash windows and talk about his lost basketball past in Compton and at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, stopped as they learned of his death. Tony Chauncey, a Time Warner Cable worker, said he had seen him last month and told him that he was going to a hospital to be checked for a reappearance of cancer"
Really sad for such a man's life who was stole, life is fragile. I pray he finds rest where he is now.
Our Hockey Mum is now on the hot seat....she has been bashed left, right and center for all the wrong reasons. From her abstinence message to who she has always made us believe she was, some even joked saying they suspected she liked black guys all along!. Maybe Sarah heath is different from Sarah Palin. Thanks to Glen Rice....who blew open a can of worms...how true this is, lets wait for Sarah's version. This is Politics at work, make sure your hands are not dirty when you want to run in power.....there are people paid to launder your past and be sure they find no dirt. Pit-bull with lipstick?????
Take a good look at these two women, and please help me crown your own miss Universe. Ms France has said all the wrong things about Ms Angola. She was quoted saying that Ms Leila Lopes hardly wore make up and often Jeans. She was reserved and Lacking personality.....tempted to think she is going the racist way but point is, black is beautiful and even better. If at 25 a woman can still look that good, i imagine the nearest future. Black is better. By now Ms Thilleman would have gotten over her self,. Did she think she would have won? Alyssa Campanella remains the prettiest if the whites and if she didn't win....then i was not expecting anyone else.
