Ex-NBA Player Eric Williams

I'm Homeless

EXCLUSIVE

0212-eric-williams-01
Former NBA player Eric Williams -- who spent 12 seasons in league -- says he is homeless and broke … this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ Sports.

Williams -- who also appeared on "Basketball Wives" -- made the shocking statements in a letter he wrote to a Colorado court recently explaining why he could not attend a child support hearing in CO earlier this month.

Among the reasons, Williams says a "court-ordered citation for me to appear was not delivered to my home address as I have no home."

Williams -- who's on the hook for more than $24k in unpaid support to the mother of his 13-year-old son -- also says his financial situation is so dire, he can't afford airfare and has no money to pay a lawyer.

In his letter, Williams says he is currently a volunteer at an unnamed non-profit organization -- and says, "I'm in the rebuilding stages of my life."

We reached out to Williams for comment. So far, no word back. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

What an idiot, he made about $40 million in the NBA. He should have invested it instead of pissing it away.

NBA players get a 401k wit no upper limit that the leage matches %140 meaning for every dollar contributed they get 1.40 in matching funds. So if this idiot at invested 500k for 12 years he would have $14,400,000 in that fund IF it never made a dime in returns, which it would and will still be doing. Instead these stupid black players listened to AGENTS, MANAGERS and other LEECHES and invest in night clubs real estate boats whores ect. It gets worse NFL players get a %200 percent match on the 401 ke. Her this fool sits earned $39 million dollars is broke and homeless(Hey if he can make it to 55 he'll start getting his pension which is almost 300k a year TODAY and probably will be more in 15-20 years)

Stupid is as Stupid does. WIns the genetic lottery but looses at the simplest of life choices.
