Here’s a piece of free advice to professional athletes: Don’t let friends prone to driving automobiles into buildings borrow your one-year-old Bentley — especially if they’re drunk. Lakers forward/center Jordan Hill unfortunately learned that lesson the hard way. Hill’s Bentley was found crashed into a Marina Del Ray, Calif., conduminium complex early Saturday morning, according to the LA Times. Hill was not in the car at the time as a driver or passenger. The driver, Hill’s friend Michael Lacey, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. He was found inside Hill’s condo after the crash. Lacey and the passenger were treated for minor injures. No one else was hurt as a result of the crash. A police dispatcher said there were no signs the car had been stolen. Hill and Lacey were friends from high school. The one-year-old Bentley was totaled in the wreck. It has a blue book value of around $200,000. Hill is making $3.63 million this season for the Lakers. The Lakers currently have a 38-36 record and if the playoffs started today, they would be the odd men out of the West. Between the firing of Mike Brown, the hiring of Mike D’Antoni, Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard‘s disagreements and Pau Gasol‘s injures, you could have certainly said the Lakers’ season has been a train wreck. Now you can say the season has been a car wreck — a Bentley crashing through a condo to be exact.
