James Worthy Is Selling His Boring Bel-Air House — $2.195 Million

The only reason this house is 2 million dollars is because it’s in Bel-Air. This is the most boring, grandpa looking house I’ve ever written about on this site. Good lord, James. I thought a Laker legend like yourself would be living in a dope ocean side mansion or something. You haven’t been married for what, like 20 years now? You can’t be bringing back that old, crusty...

James Worthy loves a good old rant and last night was no exception. After the Lakers had their worst loss (statistically) in franchise history against the Clippers last night, Worthy went off during the post-game show on Time Warner Cable: SportsNet.
