Larry Johnson RumorsAll NBA Players
Sager’s job requires remaining cool and composed in pressure or uncomfortable situations. There was no situation more uncomfortable than when he conducted a walkoff interview with mercurial forward Larry Johnson. “I always try to play off what [play-by-play man] Marv [Albert] and the guys are saying,” Sager said. “We had Hubie Brown analyzing the game and Larry Johnson was doing it all. Hubie was going, ‘That’s the way Larry Johnson should play, he should get back to the way he used to play. That’s great to see.’ And halftime we walk off the court and he was with the Knicks and I say, ‘Larry, Hubie Brown was just commenting about how well you were playing.’ [Johnson said], ‘You can tell Hubie to go [expletive] himself. He’s not my coach.’ I go, ‘uh, OK.’ ”
More money problems for Grandmama … this time Larry Johnson’s being sued for close to $500,000 after allegedly blowing off a bank loan from 2007 … TMZ Sports has learned. Bank of America claims the former NBA star — who filed for bankruptcy last year — is in the hole to the tune of $494,446.57 … because he stopped making payments on his $450k loan in 2010. Johnson’s got serious money problems … crazy for a guy who reportedly made more than $80 MILLION during his NBA career. Last year, he was accused of being a deadbeat dad to 4 different women.
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!
