If you believe Curry is broke, that means he blew over $70 million.

His former Chicago mansion is up for sale. Realtor.com has the details.

Former Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks center Eddy Curry became a cautionary tale of athlete financial woe when he lost his Burr Ridge, Ill. mansion to foreclosure last year. Despite earning an estimated $70 million in his basketball-playing career, Curry found himself nearly $220,000 behind on his $3.7 million mortgage in 2009. He was ultimately foreclosed on in March 2012 and the home was later sold at a sheriff’s sale.

The Chicago Tribune reported that the custom-built mansion Curry paid $6.2 million for in 2006 has been listed by its lender for $3.999 million.

The expansive manse offers seven bedrooms, nine fireplaces, 11 bathrooms and 9,340 square feet of living space. Handcrafted details such as millwork, built-ins and stately touches exude an air of “old world elegance,” and high-end amenities include an elevator, a two-story foyer with a fireplace, a cherry-paneled library, and a family room with a wet bar. The master suite sits in its own dedicated wing and a completed lower level comes complete with a kitchen, a pub-style bar, a movie theater and a massive wine cellar.

    Another statistic. Another black athlete who wasted money on butter instead of investing in guns. Another over grown baby boy who did not think like a man. He is not the first black pro athlete to squander millions nor will he be the last. So sad.
