JaMarcus Russell Spends More Time in the Jewelry Store than the Film Room
Last week on TNT, the Suns broke their 18-game TNT losing streak by coming back to beat the Mavericks. The Inside the NBA show after the game was every bit as good as the actual game, as always. Not only did they have clips of Cheryl Miller and Reggie Miller dancing, but they also showed Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell in attendance. Rather, they showed pictures of Russell’s jewelry which could probably pay off the entire state of California’s deficit. What I didn’t realize was that announcer Kevin Harlan got in some nice shots during the actual telecast. Check it out via Jimmy Traina’s Extra Mustard at SI and Thunder Treats:
Let me just point something out: you wouldn’t be a target to be robbed if you weren’t advertising that you had millions of dollars and half your signing bonus hanging on your neck. That’s something Javon Walker and Floyd Mayweather Jr. had to learn the hard way. Hopefully JaMarcus doesn’t have to learn that lesson but it’s pretty clear his interests lie in the wrong places. It will be a shame to see all his talent go to waste.
