    Last October, Globe writer Shira Springer originally shed light on the staggering financial collapse of former Celtic Antoine Walker, who made some $110 million in his 12-year NBA career. Facing debts of more than $4 million, Walker struck a deal with the Guaynabo Mets in Puerto Rico, playing for $7,000 a month with a chance to make $150,000 if the team wins a title.

    ESPN’s Outside The Lines traveled to Mexico and found a former all-star who sounded equal parts disappointed, apologetic, desperate, and lost as he tries to pick of the pieces of an excessively lavish lifestyle and poorly planned investments. One Chicago lawyer called him a “slumlord,” Cedric Maxwell put Michael Jordan at the root of Walker’s gambling issues, and Walker called the situation a “disaster.”
