Former NBA Player Glen Rice Made Approximately $66M in his Career & is Now Broke

Glen Rice (L) of the Charlotte Hornets goes agains

Unbelievable. Former NBA player and sharp shooter Glen Rice was an absolute nightmare on the court.  Whenever he raised up to shoot the ball, it was a foregone conclusion that the ball was going on.

During his 15-year NBA career, Glen Rice made approximately $66 million in the NBA and that’s not including whatever endorsement deals he had.  But Rice recently told a family court judge that he is broke and can’t afford to pay his child support payments.  So now he wants them to be reduced.

“Three-time NBA All-Star Former NBA Miami Heat superstar Glen Rice is “almost broke” despite a 15-year career in the NBA that also included a stints with the Miami Heat, the Charlotte Hornets and the Los Angeles Lakers.

At least, that’s according to Miami-Dade County court records made public earlier this month in a paternity suit filed against Rice by a Fort Lauderdale woman in 2010.

The woman, Broward County guardian ad litem staffer Robin Duncan, originally managed to squeeze $1,500 a month in child support for a little girl named Gianna fathered by the then-married prolific small forward.

Last year, however, Rice filed a heart-wrenching plea to the court system to substantially lower his monthly payments, and both the court and Duncan signed off on a new deal.

On Sept. 8, Duncan agreed to $600 a month for as long as Rice got caught up with unpaid support totaling $2,000.

Why a downward adjustment, something relatively rare in child support?

Rice hasn’t been able to find a job in years, and he is “almost broke” after living off his basketball assets since he retired in 2004 and making a slew of bad investments, according to the court papers.

“A permanent, material, substantial, unanticipated and involuntary change in circumstances [warranted] a downward modification in support,” the filing reads. “The father (Rice) is in dire financial straits … He has attempted to become gainfully employed in various capacities but has been unable to earn a semblance of meaningful income.””
