Larry Johnson RumorsAll NBA Players
Former NBA superstar Larry Johnson was nearly a million bucks in the hole with one of his baby mamas — but he found a way to make her happy … hand over the keys to a house!! Laura Tate filed docs claiming the ex-Knicks and Hornets player was way behind in child support payments — to the tune of around $900,000. She wanted the court to liquidate his assets so she could get paid, but we’ve learned Johnson hammered out a deal with her.
TMZ Sports broke the story… Johnson filed for bankruptcy in March. According to court docs, some of the debt is owed to his myriad maternal units. Now, Laura Tate — one of those mothers — has filed docs saying Johnson has only been paying her $1,000 per month for child support … when he’s supposed to be forking over $11k. She also says he set up a trust in 2006, and filled it with the $26 mil.
Kendall Gill: Me, Larry Johnson, and Alonzo Mourning were young upcoming guns in the league. We were feeling ourselves in this game because we were giving it to the Bulls. After this play our Wild oats quickly became shredded wheats! Alonzo had just blocked 2 of the Bulls shots. We started talking smack. I could since MJ getting mad because We were matched up against each other. I didn’t give a crap though because I was young, dumb and didn’t know any better. MJ back doored me out of the triangle offense and put Zo on his collection of posters. Lol. Moral of this story? Callin out the Devil is one thing. Facing him is another! Never tug on Superman’s cape unless you’re absolutely ready!

When Jerry Tarkanian walked into Larry Johnson’s life he was the coach Johnson needed, but quickly became the father he never had. “You’ll hear guys talk all the time about coaches being a father figure. Well I’m 45 years old and I’ve never met my father,” said Johnson, the former Knick. “I consider Jerry Tarkanian my father.”
