Most of us can pretty much guess that if you’re the kid of a star athlete, you’ve got it pretty darn good. Now, we get a bit of a look at just how good it can get, thanks to Tracy McGrady’s baby mama, Pearl Vega, and her aim to get the same lifestyle for their daughter that McGrady’s other kids enjoy.
The SARASOTA HERALD-TRIBUNE informs us that the Houston Rockets star will be paying just over $54K a year to Vega. Not surprisingly, Vega wanted much more per year (in the $200,000+ range) than the amount the judge awarded.
The ORLANDO SENTINEL has the inevitable follow-up piece to noted theologian Dwight Howard having a child out of wedlock.
Howard, who has claimed to be devoutly religious his entire life, said when he was drafted, “Character has been in me, the way I am. I’m not going to change because I have money.”
More: “He has spoken often about converting as many NBA players as possible to his Christian faith and typically signs the phrase ‘God Bless’ alongside his autograph. During last year’s NBA All-Star Game slam dunk contest, Howard slapped a sticker with a picture of his smiling face on the backboard while dunking the ball. The sticker had the hand-written phrase, ‘All things through Christ.’ Phil. 4:13.”
One thing we know is that Howard’s behavior is like the majority of NBA players, so nothing will likely change on the endorsement front. But what of his devoted religious flock? How do they feel about him and his Baby Momma? (We feel GREAT, after seeing her amazing photos:)
