Rashad McCants Explains How Relationship With Khloe Kardashian Cost Him $60M
You remember Rashad McCants? The former UNC Tar Heels Rashad McCants player who led his team to a victory over Illinois in the NCAA championship Game back in 2005. A bunch of things have changed since then, like being blackballed from the NBA and losing out on $60M because of a Kardashian, at least according to McCants.
Charlotte Observer explains:
“I’ve been told, numerous conversations and numerous sources, that I’ve been blackballed,” McCants said. “And it’s just the way the league is sometimes. When one person who is a higher-up, Hall of Famer, says don’t touch him, they won’t. And that’s just how it is.”
Two failed stints in the NBA Development League and a handful of international stops have been his only options. The UNC allegations haven’t helped, nor has his reputation as a bad locker room presence. But McCants’ biggest regret was his highly-publicized relationship with reality TV star Khloe Kardashian late in his career, which he said gave people an opportunity to doubt his commitment to the NBA.
“Without that situation in play, I’m a $60-70 million player,” McCants said. “Easily.”
These days, McCants is getting ready to head back to the court as he was chosen #1 overall in Ice Cube’s BIG3 league, which is slated to begin in June.
