The son of a Miami Heat legend famous for making it rain three-pointers was arrested at a club famous for making it rain dollar bills. Glen Rice Jr. was put in handcuffs at 1:15 a.m. on Tuesday morning. According to the exclusively-obtained arrest report, the incident started when Rice, 26, was unhappy with the service inside Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami Gardens.
Rice claims he was set off because the bouncer said something about his sister.

Nick Young has been ordered to pay his ex-manager more than $700,000 after doing the exact WRONG THING one should do when being sued.

Nick was served with the papers but never responded, and failed to appear in court to fight the case. So the judge — sick of waiting around — entered a default judgment in favor of Andre in the amount of $722,558.
