patron saint of unballerly behavior, matt bonner:

Bonner bought his car, a white Pontiac Grand Prix, in New Hampshire to avoid paying sales tax.[8] He chose it because it had good leg room and decent gas mileage.

There is an Italian-made Ferrari in the players’ parking lot, but it does not belong to Jennings. It is guard Michael Redd’s car. Jennings opted for a Ford Edge, with its sticker price of $26,000. “I want to save my money,” he explained.

After signing with Sicilia Messina of the Italian league based in Messina, Sicily, 2003 proved to be a harrowing year for Bonner. Bonner survived a 104.5 degree Fahrenheit fever brought on by a bout of salmonella (treated by the team dentist) most likely caused by a lack of running hot water in his apartment. Sicilia had filed for bankruptcy in the middle of the season and had stopped paying its players. Bonner's heat and electricity were shut off and he was given two eviction notices.

"Stories about former Bulls star Scottie Pippen being a cheapskate are legendary. There's a laundry list of Chicago restaurant servers who can attest to Pippen's notorious low tipping habits. Turns out nothing has changed. The New York Post reports the ex-NBA champ even tried to bargain with a bunch of strippers the other night at the Penthouse Executive Club, a "gentleman's club." But according to the paper's source, the women, "who are not impressed by celebrity, but by financial liquidity -- moved on to the next suite, which was occupied by a very willing group of young stockbrokers with zero negotiating skills."

An NBA player might ride a bike at work, hopping on a stationary one if he can't practice. Suns forward and downtown resident Louis Amundson rides a bicycle to work.

His silver beach cruiser with the bell is like his team. If he is aboard and pedaling, the vehicle - whether it is a bike or the team - is always moving.

so not baller it almost wraps back around to baller status

Regarding his own personality, Duncan compares himself to Will Hunting of the movie Good Will Hunting, which centers around the genial and antagonistic character of Will Hunting, portrayed by Matt Damon. He stated: "I'm just a taller, slightly less hyperactive version of the Damon character in the movie.

Duncan also loves Renaissance fairs and the fantasy role playing game Dungeons & Dragons.[95]

Tolliver’s gifts to himself at his career milestones have been nice, but far from over the top. The first gift for his D-League contract was new rims for his car, which at the time was a Chevy Tahoe. Another time he said he gifted himself a new stereo system.

But what about the diamond earrings?

“These were a gift from Claire’s,” he said.

Claire’s? As in the costume jewelry place at the mall?

“I will never in my lifetime buy real earrings, because I lose them so much,” he explained. “I know the hard work it takes to make a dollar. Real earrings this size might cost $2,000, and if I lost $2,000 I would be sick to my stomach.”

jose calderon, pig farmer

The Raptors' Media Guide says you own a pig farm. Is that true?

Well, kind of. It's not like I have it all by myself, but yeah, we sell the ham there in Spain and I've tried to get it here to Canada, too.

Ah, okay. We thought you had a bunch of pigs for pets or something.

No, no. It's just for my business, that's it. They're really nice animals sometimes, but it's not like I have pigs because I like them.

So after signing the largest contract of his life Tuesday, the longtime Pontiac Grand Prix driver and delicatessen aficionado embarked on a new age of outlandish spending. “When I splurge,” Bonner said, “I'm going to order double meat on my sandwich.”

During his brief tenure in Houston, Scottie Pippen was affectionately known as No-Tippin Pippen at the local Italian eatery my family frequented. The rhyme made itself, it's like he was destined to be the least stuntin dude on whatever team he was on.
