[Link] Rider racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and suspensions in his NBA career, which ended in 2001. His offenses ranged from being tardy to practice to spitting at fans and airport personnel to crimes of assault and marijuana possession.
He spent two days in jail for failing to perform court-ordered community service for a 1994 assault charge -- kicking a woman in the back after a disagreement at an autograph signing.
And he's only 34 years old. I hope dude figures it out. It doesn't seem like he's got much chance of staying free left to him and he's already used up his benefit of the doubt the cops & system. No matter what you've been through growin' up, that's one of the last things to have right in front of you.
I don't know. It just makes me think and hope the best for him and everyone around him.
