Where are they now? NBA Player -Isaiah Rider

I just ran across this article at cnnsi.com.   Well it seems NBA star, Isaiah Rider is in a Los Angeles jail for an investigation in regards to an auto theft.  Isaiah was driving in the city of Los Angeles with a car that was reported stolen.  

HMMMMMMMMMMM!

Here’s a guy who made a ton of money in the NBA just a few years ago and now he’s driving around Los Angeles in a stolen car.  It was not too long ago this guy was playing professional basketball and visiting numerous cities throughout the United States playing ball.  I think the NBA needs to educate their players on how to manage their money for when they are no longer in the NBA spotlight.  I recently read an article where David Stern would raise the minimum age for the NBA again.  I think this is a great idea.  These players should take their college education more seriously and start using their money for good use.  I will assume that when Isaiah Rider goes to court, he will use a public appointed attorney, instead of using the money he earned in the NBA for a attorney.

I am glad I have never bought an Isaiah Rider jersey.  I would feel embarrassed.  Some professional players never seem to grow up.  I do admit there are many respectable ex-professional player out there but we never hear about them because they do not do stupid things.  Next time you go out and consider buying a player’s jersey, just remember they may do something really stupid down the road

  1. just because you buy a jersey with a professional athletes name on it nobody is gonna look at you and say that your stupid for wearing it there is no reason to get embarrased for wearing an Isaiah Rider jersey. If people are avid basketball fans and they no who Isaiah Rider is they will probabaly like the fact that your wearing his jersey. And i am not being biased because we have the same first name.

That was for victorb

  3. It has nothing to do with money management. JR has been getting arrested every couple of months since college. There hasn’t been anyone near as bad in the NBA.
