    Knicks center (when he plays, that is) made $10 million last season to play in seven games. Yet he has serious debt, including defaulting on an $575K loan with an 85 PERCENT interest rate.

    The list of his expenses includes $1,000 per month for cable and sattlelite services, $30K per month in household expenses, $17K per month to family members (naturally), and, for some reason, he owes $350K to Juwan Howard.

    He paid a chef $72K a year to feed him Doritos?

    I think it was a casino marker, and they're allowed to charge that much interest under Nevada law.

    I wonder if the $350K he owes Howard is also a gambling debt.

    Sounds like he spent most of his fortune on women, partying and gambling and the rest he wasted.
