Former Celtic Has No Pot of Gold to Pee In

6/21/2008 1:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vin BakerVin Baker may wanna lace his Reebok Pumps back up -- because the former basketballer ain't ballin' any more!

Baker's nearly 10,000 sq. ft. Conn. home is going up on the auction blocks later this month for a decent $2.3 million, according to ml-implode.com.

This isn't Vin's first dance with foreclosure -- his restaurant, Vinnie's Saybrook Fish House, also went under earlier this year.

Vince is an alcoholic that the Celtic organization worked hard to get help with his problem. His addiction cost him his career and now his home

It's too bad that one of the most overpaid NBA players of all-time can't even find a way to enjoy the unwarranted spoils he earned. I saw a rumor of this posted at RootZoo the other day, and now you've confirmed it here. Thank you. Add Baker to the growing list of NBA players who've blown their fortunes.

Barbara..people come here to read gossip about celebrities and people in the news but this is going to far and actually people "do not" come here to read this kind of thing...and everyone has their own opinion and sometimes TMZ needs to be reminded that they are a bunch of asses...this was not cool to post. Period

barbra - opinions are like armpits - every one has them and yours stinks --- the whole country in one way or another is facing some type of issue with the "mortgage crisis", if you were behind on your bills would you want somebody posting it online - this counrty has no compassion anymore - even famous people are still people!!

When will these people learn to OWN heir homes. They make enough money to buy a house without having a mortgage.

I think it's good TMZ is putting this out there especially as a cautionary tale for all the younger kids who want the clothes and the flashy merchandise. Even if you make millions, it can be taken from you faster than you realize. Besides where do the draw the line? Don't report Vin Baker, Ed McMahon or Michael Jackson's money troubles? Don't report Britney's medical break down as the FAA cordons off airspace? Don't report legal trouble because someone's in a bad spot? Celebrity news isn't just happy, little juicy rumors.

with athletes being paid the kind of money that cops and fireman, who run IN to a burning building to save your family should be paid, i think it's funny when one of them get's wiped out financially. with these athletes atificially inflated egos, when they're too stupid to appreciate their great good fortune, how can it be anything but funny?
