Here's the latest chapter in the sad saga that is Antoine Walker's life:
Antoine Walker's NBA Championship ring just sold for $21,500 … which would have been great news for Antoine, if he wouldn't have been FORCED to sell as part of hisbankruptcy case.
Walker — who won the ring as a member of the 2006 Miami Heat – filed for bankruptcyback in 2010 … claiming he racked up more than $12.7 million in debts … but had only $4 mill in assets.
According to court docs, Walker had to liquidate his property to pay back his creditors … including his ring. Now TMZ has learned, the ring has been tentatively sold to a guy named Andres Garcia for a cool $21,500.
I want to feel compassion for Antoine Walker. He seems like a genuine guy who went broke because he took care of too many people, had a gambling problem and made bad investments.
But after reading Chris Ballard's recent expose on Walker, I was disgusted. How can a guy attempting an NBA comeback be 40 pounds overweight and miss team flights?
He might still have enough talent to be a role player in the NBA, but his work ethic and professionalism leave a lot to be desired.
