DeAndre Jordan makes about $139,514 per game, and strippers are getting exactly none of that cash -- the Clippers star tells TMZ Sports he doesn't spend any money in gentlemen's clubs!

He’d throw $30,000, $40,000 every time we went. I’m like, ‘You realize what I can do with this money?’” Sports Illustrated

Nike is pulling back on plans for a shoe that sneakily honors Allen Iverson after the former NBA superstar demanded answers. Iverson says Nike used his identity, likeness and persona without permission for a sneaker out of the company's Zoom Flight '96 collection. The ambiguously titled sneaker has the No. 3 — Iverson's number — on each back heel and the red, white and blue colors of the Philadelphia 76ers. Neither Iverson nor the Sixers are named on the sneaker or on the branding for the shoe, which were expected to be released later this year or in early 2015. USA Today Sports
