Former Bull's Bankruptcy Denied

Damn! We thought Shawn Kemp was the poster child for the NBA needing to provide sex ed for its players, but former Bulls forward Jason Caffey has been even more prolific with his penis than Kemp was. Having fathered 10 kids with eight different women (Kemp has seven), Caffey recently filed for bankruptcy. On Tuesday, however, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Margaret A. Mahoney tossed Caffey's bankruptcy case, which clears the way for the women to sue the former basketball player for over $200,000 in back child support and legal expenses.
Caffey joined the Bulls out of the University of Alabama as their first round pick in the 1995 draft and won two championships with them during their second three-peat. Caffey was traded during the '97-'98 season to the Golden State Warriors, where he signed a 7-year, $35 million extension in 1999. Traded to Milwaukee in 2000, he played three seasons with the Bucks before personal problems hastened his exit form the NBA.
Despite the monster contract, Caffey claimed in his bankruptcy filing to have debts pushing $2 million, while his assets were worth only $1.15 million. Guess $35 mill just doesn't go very far when you're cutting ten child support checks monthly. So how will he support his roster of kids? His NBA days are clearly over, but maybe he can still play overseas. Will the baby mamas accept their checks in Euros?
