"I don't want to talk about it," is the reaction one might expect of someone who's unexpectedly found himself with $750,000 less on his hands, and this is indeed the sentiment of New York Knicks forward Derrick Williams. Williams was out celebrating a team victory with friends early Saturday, reports the New York Post, when he met up with two women in the Meatpacking District. The 24-year-old invited them back to his place in Tribeca to continue the party, and party they did—according to Williams and law enforcement, the women danced right out the baller's door with a Louis Vuitton suitcase crammed with some three-quarters of a million dollars in jewelry. The Post notes that there may be a trend of women preying on bling-laden guys at clubs in the Big Apple, and Deadspin adds that Williams has been anything but shy about his shiny, pricey objects on social media. Says Williams, "it's still up in the air." (More New York Knicks stories.)
