Baron Davis has made about $80 million over his career so far. He'll make another $62 million or so over the 5 year contract he signed with the Clippers.
So why on earth would a man who will have earned at least $142 million over his career… do something like purposely get fat (fatter?) to make $250,000 from Jenny Craig?
The Clippers' Baron Davis is getting paid $250,000 for endorsing a weight-reduction drink. The Clippers privately say that the weight Davis gained to do the endorsement accounted for his slow start. Having signed him to a five-year deal with $62.5 million guaranteed, you can see how they're not very thrilled by that.
Is Davis a moron? Is he a complete a-hole? To purposely get fat for that little money… it's mind boggling.
It's official: Minnesota has fired Randy Wittman and replaced him with Kevin McHale. This is actually a demotion for Kevin… because he's stepping down from his vice president of basketball operations job. Tick tock, Kevin… tick tock.
