Lawsuit against NFL star Dez Bryant: Owes over $800k

 

Looks like somebody is spending money, without really spending it. A lawsuit has been filed against Cowboys’ Dez Bryant seeking over $850,000 from the star athlete. According to sources, Dez is owing back bills dating back to his college days.

Here’s the details:

In his lawsuit, Eleow Hunt of suburban Colleyville said he extended a line of credit to Bryant on the request of David Wells, the player’s adviser and a co-defendant in the case. The year before, Wells had allegedly done the same thing for his cousin, Michael Crabtree, then a standout receiver at Texas Tech who went on to become a first-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers. Hunt is seeking repayment for $588,500 in watches, earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets and other jewelry; $15,850 for NBA and NFL tickets; and $11,000 in loans.Wells has only paid back about $15,000 of the outstanding debt.  (Read full story here ).

Knicks Carmelo Anthony trips Magic Guard Jason Richardson

We know the slump of the Knicks has taken a toll of Carmelo Anthony’s heart and pride. Since the Denver-NY trade outcomes have flip flopped. Nuggets have been playing fantastic ball and well the Knicks are now below a .500,  clenching on to a #7 seed in the Eastern Conference. Thanks to http://www.worldstarhiphop.com I caught glimpse of this play of Melo tripping Richardson. All is fair is basketball. Well not really. Appears as though when both went for a loose ball, hitting the court,  Richardson came up with the ball and dished it to Hedo Turkoglu. While getting up Melo tossed Jason’s legs in sense tripping him. Not sure if “trip” is the right term because technically they were both on the ground. Check out the video above.

No Football? NFL lockout in affect

I’m usually entertained during NFL offseason with free agent trades, unfortunate sexual scandals with players, and stupidity antics of players such as DUI’s or even stealing donuts out of a shop *cough Golden Tate*. But enough of that. Overshadowing even the NFL Draft that takes place next month, the coverage of football has been left with the possible question of: Will there be a football season this year?

The whole league has been affected. During the lockout there are no trades with free agents, no training camps, no football. To put it in a “Lockout for Dummies” summary, this is all about the Benjamins baby, the big bucks, the moolah, the MONEY. Continue reading No Football? NFL lockout in affect
