While the NBA was celebrating the All-Star Weekend, Miami Heat guard Ray Allen was playing Black Jack in Las Vegas. It didn’t go so well.
From TMZ Sports:
The Miami Heat superstar decided to try his luck with the cards on Saturday night … and posted up at a $1,000 minimum table in the exclusive Club Prive high-rollers lounge.
You can check out his stack (don’t worry, it’s OK to look) … it appears Ray was gambling with somewhere between 30 and 40 yellow chips ($1,000-a-pop).
Our casino sources who were there during the gambling run tell us Ray — who once signed an $80 MILLION contract — didn’t have a great showing at the table … and walked away empty handed.
Allen can afford to lose a bit of money. Aside from that $80 million dollar contract, Allen has made closer to $200 million in his entire NBA career. So losing $30-40k on blackjack is like playing with change.
