I remember reading in article, in "Slam" I think, with the Journalist having travelled with the Memphis Grizzlies on an Eastern Road Trip.
They were travelling on a Chartered Jet and he asked the guys what they did to keep themselves entertained in flight. Lorenzin Wright's answer was along the lines of "I try and count the Diamonds in my Necklace, I bought it for $250,000 in Mexico last Summer and am still not sure how many it has".
I just thought that put the whole overpaid player into perspective for me.
That story and the one on Latrell Sprewell, who while in New York, bought a new Lamborghini Murcielago, didn't like the colour so had it resprayed, TWICE!!! (didn't like the 2nd color either apparently), at a cost of $50,000 each time. Glad to see that idiot's gone broke, although I hope that his ex-wife has got enough to support herself and his kids.
