    Hey, someone paid Mike Tyson big dollars to practice in the middle of a casino.

    I misread the thread title and thought it said "A1" at first ...

    Damn you, Phil Collins.

    Carry on.

    That is a shitload of money to go through in 15 years. I mean, that's lighting cigars with $50 bills territory.

    I'm sure after lighting the first 100 cigars, it becomes easier.

    I understand wanting to not turn your back on those who kept you alive/free from harm but at some point you have to say, "I've got to plan for my kids."

    Sorry, but there are plenty of people out there far more deserving of sympathy. People who would have given anything to have even a fraction of what he pissed away.

    He'll always have his Georgetown education to fall back on. They can never take away the degree and education.

    Reporter: "Could you clear about your financial habits since we hear you don't have any money?"
    00:32 → 00:38

    If I ain't got no money, I ain't got no money.
    00:38 → 00:41

    It is as simple as that. It ain't about that at all.
    00:41 → 00:47

    It's easy to sum it up if you're just talking about money.
    00:47 → 00:50

    We're sitting here, and I'm supposed to be the franchise player,
    00:50 → 00:52

    and we're talking about money.
    00:52 → 00:57

    I mean listen, we're sitting here talking about being broke,
    00:57 → 01:01

    not having any money, not having any money, but we're talking about being broke.
    01:01 → 01:07

    Not the game that I go out there and die for
    01:07 → 01:10

    and play every game like it's my last
    01:10 → 01:13

    but we're talking about bring broke, man.
    01:13 → 01:15

    How silly is that?
    01:15 → 01:20

    Now I know that I'm supposed to save my money and all that
    01:20 → 01:25

    but I'm not shoving that aside like it don't mean anything.
    01:25 → 01:28

    I know it's important, I honestly do
    01:28 → 01:30

    but we're talking about being broke.
    01:32 → 01:35

    We're talking about being broke, man.
    01:35 → 01:38

    (laughter from the media crowd)
    01:38 → 01:40

    We're talking about being broke.
    01:40 → 01:42

    We're talking about being broke.
    01:42 → 01:44

    We're not talking about having money.
    01:44 → 01:46

    We're talking about being broke.
    01:46 → 01:49

    When you come to the arena, and you see me play,
    01:49 → 01:51

    you've seen me play right,
    01:51 → 01:53

    you've seen me give everything I've got,
    01:53 → 01:56

    but we're talking about bring broke right now.
    01:56 → 01:58

    We're talking about being ... (stops talking)
    01:58 → 02:00

    (more laughter)
    02:00 → 02:04

    Hey I hear you, it's funny to me to, hey it's strange to me too
    02:04 → 02:07

    but we're talking about being broke man,
    02:07 → 02:11

    we're not even talking about having money,
    02:11 → 02:16

    we're talking about being broke.
    02:16 → 02:20

    A sad but old story on AI. There are other sadder ones about him that may soon surface. Here's hoping that he finally gets it together. Maybe he will now that the leeches can't feed off him any longer.

    He does have the strong Georgetown education to fall back on.
