NFL Stud Drops $100K in Hollywood Nightclub

2/20/2011 12:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Minnesota Vikings superstar Bryant McKinnie was the ULTIMATE baller during a celebrity party at a Hollywood nightclub Thursday night -- dropping more than $100,000 on his bar tab ... TMZ has learned.


Sources at the NBA All-Star "Kick Off Party" at MyHouse nightclub -- hosted by rapper Rick Ross and model Rosa Acosta -- tell us the 6'8", 335 lb lineman ordered more than 15 bottles of expensive champagne ... among other things.

We're told some of the bottles of champagne were so big -- the entire club stopped to watch the wait staff bring them to Bryant's area to crack 'em open.

FYI -- Bryant is reportedly due to make $4.9 million in 2011 (barring a strike).

I believe in having fun and supplying drinks for everyone in the club was cool, but that's just overboard. You are pissing your future income away. I don't get it

poor blacks become rich blacks with sports because rich white owners..then become poor blacks again by buying things not needed by rich white guys who stay rich by selling un needed things to rich black guys making them poor again..hopefully one of the numerous babys they make will then become rich from sports because of rich white guys.............just a cycle..

Just think, we could give it to an illegal alien and at least know there was a chance the money would end up in a bank account. Pathetic racist Tym. Imagine, dumb white people having to hire a black as a coach when they act this way? You are pathetic Tym. Imagine just a all white team and not have so many criminals playing professional sports....racist Tym

Well to the 78% that go broke, I live within the metro area of over 1000 well to do black former NFL players who have been out of the league over 10 years and have moved on to other professions. I guess that must be the other 22 to 30 percent. Go burn your crosses elsewhere. Yes there are idiots on both sides of the track.

To post #5- This is not a race issue and you lose all credibility when you make it one. This is a lack of pure common sense issue. He only spent that kind of money to make himself look like thebig spender. That is his own insecurities. Unfortunatley, he will be broke if he continues down this path and then he will see that all the money he spent on other people was in vain.

He will be on welfare and food stamps 5 years after he retires. Too bad the NFL/other professional leagues or Agents do not require money management education in their contracts. Maybe even better is all pro atheletes should be required to get reversable vesectomies. This will save them millions because the dumb bastards do not know how to wear a condom.
