    A company owned by Shawne Merriman has sued former Duke and NBA basketball player Christian Laettner and his business partners.​

    According to a report in the Raleigh (N.C.) News & Observer, the lawsuit seeks repayment of a $3 million loan to Laettner and former Duke teammate Brian Davis that was to give Merriman ownership interest in the group's real estate projects.​

    Now, before this is added to the list by those who hold Merriman's off-field pursuits against him, it must be considered that Merriman has assured me many times that he has people working for him who do the heavy lifting in his business dealings.​

    He says he is involved and has final say in everything he puts his name on, but he insists it does not detract from football.

    I think the fact that anyone looks at Merriman's off the field buisness ventures as a distraction from the game is ridiculous. On the field he is a monster and dominant. Who cares what Merriman does outside of the scope of football; I say the more dude can invest and make a name for himself the more power to him.

    Laettner is a brave man, messing with Merrimans money, he better keep his head on a swivel...:abq1:

    Agree, dude should be free to make money as long as he doesn't miss any game prep.... He is smart to have others doing the business heavy lifting...

    Mondo, what does that image in your sig say?
