San Antonio Spurs center DeJuan Blair apparently has a thing for jewelry. He likes it so much that, back in March and April 2010, he made eight trips to a jewelry store in San Antonio and picked up more than $50,000 worth of bling. The only problem? He never got around to paying for any of it. And he has ignored a lawsuit filed by the store back in October.
He won't be able to ignore it for much longer, though. In February, a judge told Blair that he has to pay the store the money that he owes to them. And he also has to appear at a deposition next Wednesday or he could be arrested for contempt of court sometime in the near future.
Oh, and that's not all! The Spurs organization is also tied up in this whole mess. It seems as though, in addition to refusing to pay for the jewelry, Blair also used it as collateral to take out a $30,000 loan from the Spurs. So, yeah. He's clearly in over his head here, and we don't see this ending well, despite the fact that he's made almost $4 million since 2009. Damn, homie. Low on funds or what?
