I thought something like this only happened in the movies.
According to the police, Gatling broke into a key box and lived in a Arizona home from July 2010 to August 2011. The owners lived California, but kept the power on, because that is what rich people do.
Instead of being happy to get free housing, Gatling went on Craigslist and listed the house for rent for $800 and called it an “Ex-NBA” home.
He got a deposit from one potential renter, the next one called the police when they got suspicious. In case you were wondering Gatling made $30 million during his 10 year NBA career.
