    That sucks. $450,000 ouch! That was a good chunk of the signing bonus I' sure.

    I like this part of the artice: "I'm a black guy who has helped a lot of ball players save a lot of money, invest a lot of money," Moore said. "And they can't deal with it."

    He's already playing the race card................ ridiculous. :roll:

    The true race card....

    SAN FRANCISCO - The more “black looking” an African-American man charged with murdering a white victim, the more likely he is to be sentenced to death, a Stanford University researcher said Tuesday.

    But hey I love when they play the race card.
