Blair has been in the league for 4 years now and has made about $4 million. Not a ton of money, by NBA standards, but enough that he shouldn’t already be in debt to Jewelers and the Spurs. Deadspin reports Blair wanted to get his bling bling on (I use old school phrases), but didn’t want to pay. The store owner said in an affidavit that Blair failed to pay for various items he chose during eight visits between March 10, 2010, and April 10, 2010. One visit topped $11,000 and included a $4,000 diamond watch and $3,000 diamond ring, according to the receipts filed with the lawsuit. On another visit, Blair picked out more than $12,000 worth of merchandise, including what may be a watch but was only described as a “men’s Gucci with Dia” for $5,946, according to the documents. In all, he owes a total of $53,032.26 The Spurs organization also was served with a subpoena in the case and has not turned over all the responsive documents. He said that what documents the organization did provide showed Blair appeared to use the jewelry as collateral on a $30,000 loan the Spurs organization gave him. In essence, Blair has blown through a lot of money in his four years in the NBA.  Simple rule, if you are only making close to $1 million a year before taxes, don’t buy diamond watches and rings you can’t afford. Smarten Up Blair.
