The NBA is a lot like the movie Scarface. First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the sensible family sedan.
Though it’s somewhat unlikely that Utah Jazz rookie Gordon Hayward (who looks really excited to spend his summer vacation at Disneyland) will end up face down in a plate of cocaine, he did follow the Tony Montana life plan.
According to the Salt Lake City News, the ninth overall pick from the 2010 NBA Draft purchased a $28,000 Honda Accord in order to impress ladies in Utah searching for a 20-year-old man who understands the value of good gas mileage.
"That's a good, practical car for me," Hayward said.
Sound, practical purchases? Somewhere in the United States Bankruptcy Court system Eddy Curry is shaking his fist in anger. (Note: There’s a 50 percent chance that Curry has now sustained an injury due to spirited fist shaking.)
