NBA’s Antoine Walker pleads guilty to felony check charges

Walker, a former NBA all-star who now plays for the Idaho Stampede in the NBA Development League, will likely face no jail time under a plea agreement with prosecutors, and instead will be put on probation as he works to pay off gambling debts of more than $750,000 owed to three casinos.

More general bad behavior.

You would think they would have a do not gamble list to keep people who knowingly commit fraud from gambling

I don't feel sorry for him. He made something like $100 million or close to it and blew it all. He was a solid big man until he fell in love with the three pointer. Once the Celtics became good, he started jacking them up like there was no tomorrow. He led the league in threes attempted in 3 consecutive seasons if I'm not mistaken.

He was such a spare. Wasnt the term "volume shooter" created for him. In other words, he's an ok shooter, but loves to jack them up to get his points.....

This is why all players should take classes to learn how to manage their money properly BEFORE going to the NBA.
