NBA Widow Spends $1 Million in 10 Months

If you can remember back to 2010 when NBA player Lorenzen Wright was killed by a gunshot to the head, you will remember how tragic the entire story was for this young athlete and his family.

Wright earned over $55 million during his career and was divorced only a couple of months before his death from Sherra Robinson-Wright. After Robinson-Wright was cleared of being a suspect in the shooting, she received a check for $1 million dollars. After only 10 months that million is almost gone.

Heres what she spent it on

$32,000 for a Cadillac Escalade
$26,000 for a Lexus
$69,000 on furniture
$11,750 for a New York trip
$339,000 for purchase and improvement to a new home
$7,100 for a pool deposit
$5,000 for lawn equipment
$34,000 on legal fees

The money was left and supposed to go towards taking care of Wrights six children. The mismanagement of money was brought to the attention of the Memphis courts and after an investigation a judge took the remaining money away from Robinson-Wright and gave the remainder for Lorenzen Wrights father. The other money that the family received as death benefits from the NBA was also frozen.

When Wright died, he was paying $16,650 per month in child another $10,000 in alimony, giving his ex-wife a total of $319,000 per year.

This story is so sad for the children. Not only do they not have a father anymore, their mother is throwing away what money they do have to keep up with the Jones.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

If she has any sort of income, she should be just fine. This is sensationalist and hateful. She may not have made the best financial decisions, but she did not blow all of the money.

Anyone who watched ESPN's "Broke" knows that even if Wright earned $55 million, he only brought about half of that home after taxes/agents/etc.

She was granted a million. Now we don't have all the details, but if that one million was all the money she was going to get for the forseeable future, she's a dumbass.

I can understand getting a house, and one big car for all the kids (but all 6 ain't gotta go everywhere together)and paying lawyer fees.

The rest was just flossing and dumbassedness, especially if there is no other money coming around the corner.

https://abcnewspr.tumblr.com/post/629336056853069824/2020-reports-on-the-murder-of-former-nba-player

I either forgot or did not know that she pleaded guilty to facilitating his murder last year.

"A new “20/20” reports on the murder of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright. With no significant leads for nearly a decade, the mysterious case haunted his family and the city of Memphis after authorities discovered his body in the woods. But just last year as a trial was finally about to begin, Wright’s ex-wife, Sherra Wright-Robinson, made a shocking admission and pleaded guilty to facilitating Wright’s murder, which brought Wright’s family one step closer to justice. ABC News and ESPN Correspondent Ryan Smith reports the latest details and legal developments, including lingering questions about what happened to Wright. He also sat down for new interviews with Deborah Marion, Wright’s mother, whose tireless fight for justice may finally pay off, and Kelvin Cowans, a journalist who dated Wright-Robinson after the murder and wrote a tell-all book. The two-hour program also includes rare and exclusive audio of an interview Wright-Robinson gave to a local reporter, during which she claims she based the novel she wrote on Wright and their relationship. “20/20” airs on Friday, September 18 (9:00 – 11:00 p.m. ET) on ABC.

“20/20” is anchored by David Muir and Amy Robach. David Sloan is senior executive producer. Matt Lombardi is senior producer and Tom Berman is producer of this episode."

Based on this initial post, without knowing any of the info from the past 3 years, I could only see his wife as being connected to this mess, especially since she had to be cleared....
