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).

This is freaking ridiculous. I'm all for going out and having a good time but spending $100,000 in a bar in ONE NIGHT is stupid even if you have money.

Trust me...his $4.9 million will be gone as soon as some street smart ho latches on to him, he marries her thinking its love and as soon as his baller days are over or he gets hurt and can't play anymore she will take all his money, leave him with nothing and we'll be reading about about another broke down baller on TMZ in a few years.

Typical jerk - he doesn't have a clue nor care about how many people of his own race alone he could have helped with even half that money. Agreed - he will be broke and on the street and on Obama welfare roles in a few short years.

The NFL Players' Union has been stressing repeatedly to these guys that they should be SAVING THEIR MONEY due to the impending strike. Some guys, unfortunately, just don't listen.

Lets do some basic math...

$4,900,000

Now lets subtract federal income taxes, $4.9 million would be taxed at the highest rate of 38%. That leaves him with:

$1,862,000

And then he spends $100,000 (6% of his income) on a bar tab. Yup, sounds smart to me. I'm willing to be $100,000 he will be broke and in debt in a year.

And with that, you see why MN hadn't coughed up the money for a new football stadium. Let the tax payers cover it for these over paid babys while they squander it.

Let's see, 4.9 million in salary, which is about 2.5 after taxes. So, he can hit the club 24 more times before he's broke. What a moron.
