... plus an $119 laboratory fee. Maury must be shaking in his loafers right now. The makers claim that this test is for those who just "really need to know" What? Did you sleep around with too many dudes and couldn't keep count? Shit, this test is for those who want to feel better about making unwise decisions. If you really trust wifey, you would have NO DOUBT that child is yours. And for those who, at the end of the day, feel that they still need to know, get the results in the most professional way, hell even take a trip down to Planned Parenthood. These resources are here for a reason ... and it costs about the same as this test ($250-$400)

I know ... long time. It's called life.
I was going to post yesterday on the too-good-to-be-true story of Pacman Jones "making it rain" at a party next Monday, but dammit, the whole flyer was a f*ck up. He was destined to go to hell for that move. (It doesn't help that Pacman looks like an ex-boyfriend who is also destined to visit Lucifer, but I digress) ....
Expect to get that Reggie Bush that I eluded to in an earlier post tonight, especially because him and his bust-it baby made an appearance this week ...

Ain't that the truth. Thanks to Sports Illustrated opening up their archives, I was able to find the article that opened up the floodgates on this whole phenomenon.
"Paternity Ward," from the May 8, 1998 issue of SI, goes in on the huge number of professional athletes who have children out of wedlock. While fatherless children is a national problem, the number seems to grow within NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL circles.
Paternity Ward [Sports Illustrated]
My favorite excerpt after the jump ...
... Mention paternity suits to athletes, and the word setup inevitably enters the conversation. "Wherever there's money, there are going to be women," says veteran Sonics guard Nate McMillan , who has no out-of-wedlock children but has friends who do. "You find some women who might be a little lazy and don't want to work, and they're cute and have an opportunity to be with some of these players. They're using the kids to take advantage of a situation. If you don't go in as a couple and plan a family, then in a sense I think it's a setup."This is the basis of the trap. There are women out here to target men with money for a paycheck. But what must not be forgotten is that these men are playing 'tag' the cervix  of women they don't know, especially unprotected. I understand that tons of women are opening their legs to you and that if its offered to you, why turn it down? But there are too many venereal diseases and fatherless babies out here for you to think you can mess with whatever broad you want to and get away with it. It does take two to tango, so ladies must have more respect for themselves and men should show it.
"I don't condone players who have had affairs, but the fact is, there are women who hunt pro athletes in the hope of becoming pregnant and filing paternity suits to make an income," says Pat Richie, the chaplain for the San Francisco Giants and 49ers . "I'd say that teams probably have two or three women per year who are purposely looking for this." ...
 Thanks to the homie Mac Brown for the sexual metaphor.

Here we go… Allen Iverson’s return to Philly. I will be pseudo live-blogging throughout the game, so check back every quarter and so for updates after the jump …
11:58- And we’re off …
11:32 – The New A.I. with the dunk. Andre can possibly become the new face of the organization , especially if he leads this squad to the playoffs and deep in the playoffs. I felt like he was held back a bit when A.I. was there, having his occasional 20-plus point game.
10:14 – They just mentioned it: The Nuggets don’t play a shit piece of defense. How the hell do you put up 120 points and lose?
9:03 – When is A.I. going to hit a basket?
8:09 – Dalembert straight crushed A.I. You know Allen weights closer to a Thin Mint. Remember when the Sixers used to lie about Allen’s height? Six-feet tall my ass.
6:36 – Andre Miller might play tonight as if he has something to prove, especially if he keeps knocking down baskets.
6:29 - Allen hits his first basket.
6:08 – I’m mad that little girl can pass better than J.R. Smith passes the ball (or a blunt).
4:34 – And one for A.I. And he does it while looking as if he’s being decapitated … Maurice Cheeks has some pretty hair (that’s right, sue me)
2:13 – Willie Green is working on his “I’m the Random-ass Sixer to put up 20 Points” T-Shirt
1:43 – A.I.Deux with authority.
11:27 – Jason Smith aka The Pre-Requisite White Boy on The Sixers Roster with the dunk. The Nuggets are on pace to score 132 points. Figures.
9:20 – As much as people talk about A.I. sacrifices his body, he was also a good-ass flopper/pain-facemaker/grimace-grinner too. Dwayne Wade can thank A.I. for all of the free passes he got in the Finals two years ago.
8:50 – As they talk about Andre Miller, I realize something … I miss Aaron McKie …
6:48 – If both teams don’t start playing some defense, damn …
6: 23 – My guilty pleasure, Rodney Carney, with the basket. I’m happy he’s been expanding his game past dunks.
5: 34 – Thaddeus Young runs like Gumby. I like it …
3:16 – Allen Iverson is clearly a hazard to himself …
1:21 – Oh shit, a Kevin Ollie sighting …
1:11 – Everytime I look at J.R. Smith, I can’t stop thinking that he has herpes… that’s terrible I know.
Aight, end of the first half. Check back for the third and fourth quarters …
10:07 – I don’t know what to think about this game right now, the shit is getting dry. Kenyon Martin wants to mean face the Haitian Sensation. Let us remember the face that Kenyon made when he straight snapped his leg at Cincinnati…
8:56 – And Denver takes the lead, still on pace for 136 points. Smh.
8: 38 – Well, that was short-lived. A.I. Deux with the three …
7:17 – Reggie Evans and that damn bald spot. How old is homeboy, 50?
6:48 – A.I. does what he knows best. Flop. You know that’s a love-tap
4: 14 – Anthony Carter looks real weird with those tats. Maybe because he looks like that sneaky uncle in the family, that everyone thought was gay …
2:42 – I’m about to go buy Iguodala’s jersey. This kid is on point right now. It’s a shame because I should have it already.
2:28 – There is really something about J.R. Smith that I don’t like. He looks like he gets 16 year old girls drunk so he can get some ass.
1:59 – Oh shit, Jason Smith with authority, dammit they called a foul. That could’ve been a poster, for real … The Sixers bench is really stepping up.
End of the third quarter. No damn defense whatsoever. Denver couldn’t even defend a team in NBA Live.
Fourth and final quarter (yes… live blogging isn’t fun LOL)
11:38 – My guilty pleasure again with the three-point play. Man, I love this kid (I fear a trapper feeling coming on, hormones are a bitch)
10:50 – Jason Smith is about to be my favorite White boy (nah, Kevin Curtis and Mark Wahlberg have nothing to worry about … yet … Andre Miller is on it tonight. He definitely wanted to prove something. BTW, Happy Birthday to him too
9:22 – The Sixers just hit 100. Just hit it.
8:26 – Allen Iverson runs into people to get fouls called. Like I said, he’s a hazard to himself.
6:31 – I’m about to start rocking high socks because of Rodney Carney.
6: 13 – GOTTDAMN! You heard that shit through the building, Najera slammed to the floor. Good the Mexican Sensation got up. Damn…
4:29 – I’m going to stop underestimating A.I. Deux’s assist game. He could easily put up 6,7 assists a night if he wanted to.
2: 58 – The Sixers are infamous for leaving games wide open. You can put Denver away.
2: 35 – I hope this game does not go into overtime … I feel like this shit is never going to it
1:18 – That shit was hella ironic, he bit that fak. A.I. does that fake me out shit all the time but in a crucial moment , it costs him.
1:06 – And A.I. ties it. This shit is getting hyped.
:32 – Dalembert with the perfect position. That shit was ugly. I’m happy that I didn’t turn this shit off … I hate that rabbit! … who is that little boy with that texturizer? That may be Mo’s kid and if that’s the case, no chemicals were added to that hair.
:05 – Iguodala steal! Sixers with the win!
Aight people, I’m done with this. I don’t think I will be pseudo live blogging anytime soon LOL. This game was definitely worth it at the end.
The Answer who wore the The Question sneakers is back in South Philly tonight as the Nuggets play the Sixers. It will be A.I.'s first visit to the city since being traded 15 months ago.
I will be live-blogging the game tonight (check back after every quarter for updates), along with dropping some YouTube links and dumb ass diatribe (including more on A.I's lovely arrest photo, to the right, and the incident that caused it all) . I notice some of the most random shit, so be prepared for it.
To get you warmed up, the fine people over at 215 Sports have dropped their own blogs on the best A.I. moments in Philly. Check them out here.
In the meantime, in between time, I'm going to drop some quick news to you after the jump ....
Terrelle Pryor chooses Ohio State: Oregon, Penn State and Michigan fans are crying in their cereal as I type. The top recruit in the nation chose to compete with the Buckeyes this upcoming season, ending an almost two-month-long search and speculation. I must give props to Pryor and his family for really taking a look at these schools and making a conscious decision. If Michigan and PSU need anymore ammunition in their rivalries with Ohio State, this is it.
I'm going to resurrect a blog post I did on Reggie Bush earlier this year, because apparently one of his alleged bustdowns confronted him and his main bustdown, Kim Kardashian, two nights ago. I'm going to tie into "The Trap." Look forward to that after the game or tomorrow morning.

Vegas may seem a tad bit random in terms of cities, but really it isn’t. Remember, the 2007 NBA All-Star Game/rapper convention/trapper convention/pseudo-Greek fest was in Vegas. If you factor that in plus nine months later, the baby would have to be about four months old, which makes sense with the rumor.
Marbury is the father of three children with his college sweetheart, who he married. As much of a rep he may possess, he does A LOT of things for the community. While I wouldn’t be surprised if this baby actually surfaces, the investigation is still pending on this one…
Image: NY Daily News
Trappers rejoice! You now have a place where you can meet up with other trappers, trade stories, discuss alleged STDs and penis sizes. You’re not alone anymore….
Talk-Sports.net may seem, at the surface, generic at best. But when you look past the domain name, you’ll find an array of women having open and live discussions about the athletes they may have sucked and/or f**ked. While some of these women are living in fantasy, claiming to be girlfriends, baby mothers and mistresses, most of these women are just salty that they were straight ignored in the club like every other chick.
Everybody is a victim on this website. Of course, I could find STORIES and STORIES on alleged hoes like Allen Iverson, Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant and Stephon Marbury, but there are even stories on Dwight Howard (which had many of its comments deleted), Chris Paul, Richard Hamilton and all of people, Joe Johnson of the Hawks.
Reading about Joe bothered me, honestly. I’ve been a stan for Joe since he was drafted by the Celtics in 2001 and have been following his career ever since. Hell, I cried when he landed on his face in the playoffs back in 2005 when he was with Phoenix. He does countless community service projects, including aiding his local Boys and Girls club back in Little Rock and providing letter jackets to high school athletes who otherwise couldn’t afford them. He’s a good guy. So to think that he could ho-strolling in and out of Atlanta and allegedly have Herpes 2 bothered the shit out of me.
Do I believe it? Well … Joe is a very attractive dude so I wouldn’t be surprised if he may be using that to his advantage. Frankly, what young male wouldn’t sleep with countless women who are effortlessly throwing themselves at them. Whether Joe carries an STD is none of my business but to the women he’s sleeping with.
But what does bother me is that these women get a kick out of talking shit about men that they have never slept with or slept with once and got carried later. Let him go, damn. There’s a reason why they call you groupies in the first place. These chicks are the ones that are most likely to be trapping because they have nothing to lose and whole lotta shit to gain. Aight, so you f**ked him … big deal. You ain’t the first, the last or the only. If you don’t trap him, some other chick will. And will you talk shit about her too?

What the hell is going on with Greg Oden's head?
If you're going to do the mohawk cut, at least keep up with it. Shit...
Anyway, it's good to hear that Oden is working out with Portland. "Father Time" is going to be alright.

If you live in Oregon, Ohio, Pennsylvania or Michigan — or any place not under a rock — and you follow college football, you are most definitely aware of the most wanted recruit in the nation: Terrelle Pryor. (If, for some strange reason, you are unfamiliar with his story, check out the Detroit-Free Press, who have written extensively on the recruitment story of the decade)
Whatever school Pryor chooses, he can guarantee that all of the ladies will be running for the line to speak to, seduce and/or sex the quarterback.
Pryor has to get some high school cut thrown at him now, right? But in college it gets worse. Here are five ways for Terrelle to avoid getting caught up in “The Trap”...
1) Attempt to find a steady broad once he arrives
Pryor will have a multitude of chicks to choose from, but what he should do is narrow that list down. He’ll find some shorty that he would want to kick it with.
2) Refuse the sex the girl who wants it raw
Why? Because if she’s letting you hit raw, she’s probably letting the whole depth chart hit it as well.
3) Invest in a safe sex kit early
Before you move into the dorm, take a trip to your closest CVS or Walgreens and pick you up some prophylactics.
4) Do not follow this code: It ain’t no fun, if the homies can’t have none
Ask the football team at Cheyney University how that went.
5) Treat your body in the bedroom as you treat it in the weight room
You wouldn’t start a new workout regimen if you knew it wasn’t safe. You wouldn’t go on the field against a blitz without your O-line. You would get enough rest to be ready for practice and game time. Terrelle should treat his body as a temple when it comes to the bedroom. Don’t let every girl hit, wear protection to help prevent pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. Be safe.
It would be a shame to hear that Terrelle Pryor got himself caught up in "The Trap". I have faith in the kid that he won’t.
Ray Ray McElrathbey was a running back for the Clemson Tigers. He came to national notoriety for taking care of his younger brother, whose parents were both battling addictions. It was the feel-good story of 2006, a college kid handling not only academics and athletics, but raising a child under tough circumstances. The NCAA even granted Ray Ray an exemption to be able to collect clothing and other necessities that he could not otherwise afford.
This story gave Clemson the biggest publicity it’s seen outside of the annual Bowden Wars. But what does Tommy Bowden do in return… he lets Ray Ray go.
Clemson decided not to renew Ray Ray’s scholarship, which is done on a year-to-year basis. Why? Welp, that’s where the disrepency comes in.
Clemson claims that McElrathbey left because he was about to go to graduate school or transfer. Ray Ray’s people, James Davis, a senior tailback for the Tigers, claim that he didn’t have a choice but to.
"He said something about how they weren't going to renew his scholarship," said Davis, who has been friends with McElrathbey since their high school days in Atlanta. "It really surprised me. But there's a lot of stuff you can't say. It's something I guess everybody has to learn to live with." [Source]
Players lose scholarships all the time, that’s reality and I’m not mad at that. What bothers me is that Clemson milked this story dry, used it to recruit. The least they could do is give the kid a graduate assistant job or something, especially if he was on pace to graduate in August. He did a whole lot for you, so why don’t you do something for him…
But the biggest point is that Ray Ray is not alone: There are a lot of college athletes who have parental responsibilities. NCAA rules prohibited athletes from receiving money; they can’t even hold a job. The rule was put there for a reason: NCAA athletes, specifically basketball and football players, are notorious for receiving money under the table from boosters, agents, professionals, etc. But what do you expect a man to do, especially if he wants to provide for his child, if he can’t hold a job on the weekends or fix cars during the season for extra cash. It’s one thing when you receive money or discounts at Dillard’s for the hell of it, it’s another thing when you have a child to take of and you can’t provide for them because by rule, you can’t work for pay.

First, let me say that I do not advocate the use of the pull-out method. Not only is it dangerous, but also it can potentially lead to permanent physical damage. Think about it…
Travis Henry is my generation’s Shawn Kemp. As of today, Henry holds the NFL record of nine children by nine different mothers. Birth control, anyone?
Here are the logistics of the case:
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported … that court documents in a Georgia child support case show Henry, 28, has fathered nine children by nine women in four southern states and has been ordered to pay child support for seven of them.
He also had to borrow money from his former team, the Tennessee Titans, to fulfill one of those judgments, according to court records.
The revelations came in a case in which a judge in DeKalb County, Ga., … ordered Henry to provide $3,000 a month and fund a $250,000 trust by the spring for a boy he fathered out of wedlock three years ago with Jameshia Beacham, now 29. [Source]
Today, I got in a debate about whether the nine mothers of his children should be held accountable for their actions. My answer: Absolutely.
While they may not have known about Henry’s other kids, they did open their legs. They had the right to say no and they definitely had the right and the will and the need to use protection. It’s too risky out here to be boning people without it. They are all grown women — sexually-active women — who can be on birth control, demand that Henry used a condom, keep their legs closed…there were options.
Babies are blessings, do not get me wrong here. But if you let one dude hit raw, you’re probably letting other dudes hit raw as well. Henry should’ve worn a condom and they should’ve demand it.

I will get back to the task at hand next post but...
This has, quite possibly, been the best two weeks in my short lifetime, as a Philadelphia Eagles fan, since Super Bowl XXXIX. We picked up Asante Samuel and Chris Clemons, went after Randy Moss, and cut Jevon Kearse. But the best news of all: Takeo Spikes is no longer a Philadelphia Eagle. Seriously, it’s almost orgasmic.
Spikes, 31, a 10-year veteran, was acquired a little less than a year ago in a trade with Buffalo.
The Eagles will save on their salary cap the $5 million Spikes was due to receive this season.
The move, for the moment, probably means Omar Gaither will move back to outside linebacker. Stewart Bradley, entering his second season, will replace Gaither in the middle. The other starter is Chris Gocong. [Source]
The Eagles save money on the cap, to possibly go after a wide receiver, and save face. Spikes suffered from the same disease as Dhani Jones: the tendency to celebrate over some bullshit, like a damn half-tackle. The dude was pathetic. The one-line anecdotes he used were comedic. He took himself too seriously. Plus, he sucked gonads on the field for us. I don’t get it. The Eagles take a guy who used to play on two sucky teams for no apparent reason. He was a waste of space, time, energy, internet bandwidth, air, water, money, fur coats, Lego blocks, tax money, state funds, Astroturf… . For his under-achievement, he damn sure walked around this city like he was shit. There are dudes in Southwest Philly that are more intimidating than he could ever be on the field. Spikes was such a bust, Michael Vick wouldn’t even waste the time to electrocute him if he was a dog.
I’m happy he’s gone. Good riddance.
I’d must admit: I’m not the chronic ESPN watcher I used to be. It’s not because I can’t stand the boys in Bristol anymore. It’s because I don’t have the time. The nights of falling asleep to Sportscenter were over in high school. It also helps when your college doesn’t have a smidge of a chance of being on the network to begin with (Note: I should’ve went to Rutgers…dammit.)
When I started following sports, one of the first television personalities I gravitated towards was Suzy Kolber. She was a chick talking about sports like she knew it all. She was my beacon of hope. So when I heard that Suzy had a baby, my first thought: When was she pregnant??
Kolber, who turns 44 in May, delivered a baby girl yesterday. Kolber's father, Gene, said baby Kellyn weighed 61/2 pounds and measured 19 inches long.
Suzy Kolber, who chose to become a single mother, expects to cover the NFL Draft in late April. "She's in the maternity ward reading stuff right now," her father said. [Source]
Yes, they did film her from the chest up but I didn’t think anything of it. I barely watched Monday Night Football, so I missed her there. She looked like she gained weight, but who doesn’t. Hell, I didn’t even know she was 44. This shit flew under the radar, didn’t it?
Anyway, congrats to mother and child.
UPDATE: I wasn't even going to go there but word on the street is that Suzy may hit from the other side of the plate, hence there being no "known" father. Stay tuned...

Because of time and constructive criticism (props to that individual), I figured that I should give a break between bashing bad baby-daddies heads in and talk about sports in general.
Brett Favre retired. Yippee. The way ESPN and other media outlets are treating this announcement is indeed over the top. The four-letter network is infamous for sucking the life (pun really and truly intended) out of the athletes, executives and teams they admire. You noticed last year’s clusterf*ck of Patriots coverage, right?
Here are some of the best — and worst — marriage proposals to Brett Favre via “The Worldwide Leader”:
From Gene Wojciechowski (who apparently only writes about the Cubs):
The NFL got a little less interesting Tuesday. You watched Favre for what he did and what he tried to do. You marveled at his complete and utter fearlessness. You shook your head in amazement when he made great plays and when he made bonehead plays. [Source]Note: I do give Gene some leeway because he did say that Favre was not the greatest QB of all time.
From Wright Thompson (who?):
I'll miss the picks. I'll miss them even more than the touchdowns, though he holds the all-time records for both. For it was in failure that we saw how much Favre wanted to win. He wanted to win so badly he was willing to lose. Not just lose. He was willing to be the goat for a shot at being the hero. So many quarterbacks are poor timid souls who've known neither victory nor defeat. Game managers. Not our man. He knew defeat 288 times. There is something poetic about his last pass as a professional ending up in an interception. ( Note: I have a huge, giant-ass-Jason-Taylor-in-London problem with that last statement. Those 288 picks are what makes Favre overrated)It’s like I can hear the slurping noises from Bristol as I type…
I'll miss the pills, and the drinking, and the stories about rehab. Favre wasn't perfect. None of us are. But in his imperfections lay his humanity. He was capable of failure like any of us, and therefore his successes seemed even more amazing. He was real, in a league that often seems anything but. [Source]

If you’re ever up late on a Sunday night slash Monday Morning, you’ve probably seen the infomercial for Feed The Children starring Ocho Cinco himself, Chad Johnson.
Recently, I debated with someone about whether Johnson was a character guy —character enough to be a Philadelphia Eagle. Chad, the previous week, really didn’t help my cause when he allegedly push reporters out of the way during this year’s Pro Bowl. Well, I thought I had to best talking point yet by claiming that Chad Johnson being a spokesperson for Feed The Children, especially when he didn’t have to, makes him an aight guy. But then I started Googling.
Apparently, he isn’t that bad. Chad has four children: Jicyra, Chad Jr., Chade and Chaiel. According to the Bengals organization, he’s on point with his. I Googled and Lexis-Nexis’d the mess out of this one and couldn’t find any public — emphasis on public — records regarding Chad and his children.
Floating around online, however, are conflicting stories. Certain blogs are stating that there are indeed four kids by two mothers, others are saying 3 illegitimate children. While they empathize the idea that Chad make babies, none of them suggest that he’s not a good father.
At this point, I consider this still an open investigation. Deep down, I know that Chad takes care of his responsibilities and is a good dad. We’ll see what pops up in the future.

In this blog, I will commonly refer to the theory called “The Trap”. “The Trap” refers to athletes who are involved with women who purposely get pregnant for either monetary support or social gain, hence being caught in “The Trap”. While “The Trap” could be referred, metaphorically, to the female reproductive organ, the idea that some women will “trick” or “trap” men into their lives by pregnancy is a foul thing.
Darren McFadden, quite possibility a top-five pick in this April’s draft, has two … yes, two … paternity suits plus another baby on the way. That would make three babies before he’s 25. (Note: Some sources allege that it’s only one paternity suit and two claimed children. Darren McFadden agent, according to the Miami Herald, has stated that McFadden could have three illegitimate children out there.)
At first, when I heard about the initial paternity suit, filed back in January of the this year, I figured that McFadden could be a possible victim of "The Trap." He was that dude in Arkansas, a groupie super-magnet. I wouldn’t be surprised if some chick majoring in “Trap”ology got his ass. But then I started thinking and the obvious hit me…
Darren is a dude! Clearly, he’s put himself in multiple situations where he participated in unprotected sex, where not only he could be producing babies but also the clap. He was clearly aware of his actions those nights when he laid up with those broads, so much so that he hasn’t categorically denied the idea that those are his children.
In the January 29th issue of The Morning News, it was reported that:
A Little Rock woman has filed a paternity suit in Pulaski County against former Arkansas running back Darren McFadden, claiming that the Heisman Trophy runner-up is the father of her nearly four-month-old daughter.
Tiffany Smith states in her motion that she believes McFadden is the biological father of her daughter, Trinity Nevaeh Smith, who was born Oct. 2, 2007. The motion was filed Jan. 18 in Pulaski County Circuit Court. [Source]
The sad shit: This isn’t the first paternity suit filed against an Arkansas athlete this year.
Earlier this year, Razorback sophomore basketball player Patrick Beverley, in a countersuit to his paternity suit, claimed that he was the father of his child and that he has a moral and legal obligation to be a part of this child’s life [Source]
Now, are all of these three women now claiming McFadden is the father of their children because they know he’s about to get a real fat check? Maybe. But McFadden allegedly — most likely probably — took some money under the table while he was at school. These women had to know about that. The whole country did. Look at that picture of him and his car, the dude has a cash resource. *Note: Is that car even street legal? He's a dumbass for letting these pictures his the 'net in the first place. *
McFadden is on pace to be the next Travis Henry. Let’s hope he learns his lesson now before things get real crazy.

Remember Juwan Howard’s $105 million contract with the team formerly known as the Bullets back in ’96. Well Howard figured that now he could really be able to take care of his two illegitimate children. Howard offered the mothers 700 whopping dollars a month to help take care of those kids. How thoughtful of him…
There will be no blog if it was not for the King of Kiddies, Shawn Kemp. Kemp had a solid NBA career, remembered for his days as a Supersonic. But Kemp’s legacy is more for his propensity to procreate than to score double-doubles.
Kemp has a league-leading 13 kids, 12 happen to be out-of-wedlock. There is a Shawn Kemp Jr., who allegedly is supposed to play at Kentucky like his dear old dad. Since this blog is predicated on research, I found some interesting things…
While Kemp was in Cleveland , he met Nikki Giavasis, who happened to be interested in studying to be a sports agent (figures …lol), and fathered her son. Kemp, of course, denied that he was father of the child, especially because those child-support checks would get pretty high. Giavasis took him to court, won and is owed $20,000 (damn) a month. He was paying $2,500/month previously to the court ruling. [Source]
Sad thing is, in 1999, Kemp did an interview with Jim Rome admitting he did “wrong” by having so many kids out of wedlock. Kemp claimed “The only thing I want to get out there is that I'm always going to handle my responsibilities. That's it. I said that since day one. I'm not a perfect person. I've made some mistakes, but I've always tried to go back and do the right thing regardless of what I've done.” At this point, he had seven children. [Source]
In 2002, Shawn Kemp checked himself into rehab for cocaine abuse. Obviously, the mounting costs of child support played a role in his demise. Dude made a gang of money in Cleveland, which they are still paying off. Kemp gave birth to this blog, so honor is due.
