Ex-Chicago Bulls forward having trouble adjusting to post-NBA life

jason-caffey-bullsFormer Chicago Bulls forward Jason Caffey has been having a tough time adjusting to the post-NBA life, as trouble just seems to be waiting for him around every corner.

Caffey, who won two NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls in the 90’s, has 10 children from 8 women, and has been known to fail to pay proper child support.

In an interview with WKRG, Caffey spoke about his failures to pay child support. He, in particular said that “It’s never that I didn’t send child support it’s just that I didn’t send the amount that was said to be sent by the courts.”

In 2007 Caffey got arrested for not paying child support, and the latest reports say the former NBA forward cannot file for bankruptcy either since it opens the door for the eight mothers of his 10 children to sue him for child support.

Caffey had his best season with the Warriors, averaging 12 ppg and 6.8 rpg in 30.4 minutes of playing time. He holds career averages of 7.3 ppg and 4.4 rpg in 19.6 mpg.
