Also add to Coleman's woes five fur coats, a 1970 Chevy Nova and over 40 Rolex and Breitling watches. Not exactly appreciating assets. Plus he also owes $50,000 to NBA Hall of Famer, and current Detroit mayor, Dave Bing. ER, please excuse me if I say that "Amen to that!" and "the truth is that we've got to try a little bit harder" is not going to help these brothers.

Both Derrick Coleman and Walker went to College, and I doubt anyone could draw a correlation between B-ball players leaving college earlier or not going at all and bankruptcy. So I don't feel it is about education these fools know better, but the pull of material things is so strong they ignore whats right.

She will take her money and invest it in blue chip stocks, hedge funds, prime real estate and promising Silicone Valley start ups. And all her children will attend top notch private schools, receive the best tutors and attend Stanford, MIT, Harvard or Georgetown.... .NOT!!!! The only thing that will differ in 10 years is all the money will be gone and she will probably add no less than two more children to her illegitimate baby mama brood....Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
