JR Rider arrested (there are times when it seems that it requires a subscription)
not sure why he was a wanted man, but I do find it funny that a California paper forgot to mention that he played for the Lakers, but didn't forget to ad that he played for the Nuggets (he played 10 games for the Nuggets, 67 for the Lakers)..ALAMEDA - A former professional basketball player wanted on a $100,000
warrant ran from police when they showed up at a bank after getting an
anonymous tip that he was inside.
Isaiah "J.R." Rider, 34, who once played with the Minnesota Timberwolves
during a professional career that stretched from 1993 to 2002, was taken
into custody Saturday afternoon in the 2100 block of Otis Drive.
The 6 foot, 5 inch tall Rider was the fifth pick in the 1993 NBA draft and
also played with the Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets.
