sports stars affiliated with gangs in the world of American sports especially when it comes to basketball in football the ties between athletes and some of the country's biggest criminal associations are stronger than we could imagine just like many kids in low-income areas dream of escaping gang-related violence through a sports scholarship many of those who made it maintain relationships with old friends and associates some of which might still be in a game on top of that fans and detractors love to discuss each player's possible gang affiliation whenever they can the internet is full to bursting with sites forums and YouTube channels where people analyze what a star does in hopes of finding something that can confirm or deny their suspicions still exactly to what extent can ties to a famous street gang affect the career of a top league athlete in the next few minutes we will take a look at eight sports stars that are allegedly affiliated with a u.s. criminal gang and try to understand just how much this might have influenced their lives in the long run number eight demar derozan in the corner pocket Crips one of the many children of the early 90s born into the dangerous neighborhoods of Compton California San Antonio Spurs shooting guard demar derozan has often been associated with the infamous Compton Crips the african-american gang violently ran the city for most of the late 20th century and its presence marked by the occasional shootings in intimidation was well known to anybody living nearby in several of the interviews he's given throughout his career DeRozan has often talked about his early years as a basketball player and how hard it was to grow up in Compton he has been known to mention several close relatives who lost their lives to street violence and even spoke of how is evident talent on the court encouraged various thugs to spontaneously protect him based on that the occasional crip signs he throws up in the air to celebrate successful plays might be a memento to times gone by or may even hide a deeper connection with his hometowns criminal underworld number 7 Monta Ellis and the Gangster Disciples hailing from Jackson Mississippi professional basketball player Monta Ellis remains a particularly important source of inspiration for many younger kids in low-income neighborhoods he led a successful 14 year long career and collected a number of accolades including having been named the NBA Most Improved Player in 2007 only two years after being drafted into the prestigious league at the same time however several people believe Monta Ellis to be secretly associated with the Gangster Disciples one of the biggest african-american gangs in the United States the GD tattoo on his right arm and the six pointed star on his left one as well as a particular handshake he performs on the court from time to time have fueled the flames of speculation regardless of these hints Ellis is often considered one of the nicest players in the NBA and has never been charged with a crime it is possible that his affiliation with the Gangster Disciples might be nothing more than a hoax number 6 Javaris Crittenton in the mansfield gangster crips ever since his fall from grace following the murder of a 20 year old woman whom he had mistakenly targeted during a revenge shooting in 2011 former professional basketball star turned criminal Javaris Crittenton has been at the center of many a scandal among the most discussed details of this athletes personal life is his alleged affiliation with the mansfield gangster crips according to the rumors crittenton may have joined the criminal group in 2013 right after he was taken on by the Lakers in years after his first run-ins with the law later that year the athlete was also indicted alongside several known drug traffickers some of which have been accused of selling large quantities of cocaine and marijuana in the case of Javaris Crittenton however his alleged affiliation with the Crips remains a secondary issue the man was officially sentenced to 23 years in jail for the murder of Julian Jones and will unlikely leave prison before 2036 number 5 Zach Randolph in the hoop family that of Zachary McKinley Zeebo Randolph born and raised on the pitches of Marion Indiana is the perfect example of a double life on one side a professional basketball player with an impeccable track record and a large number of trophies to his name on the other a confirmed association with a criminal group known as the hoop family an official report released after the police were called to investigate a beating which took place at the athletes mansion in 2011 thoroughly explains how Randolph purposely ignored a deputy sheriff until he had a gun aimed at his chest and might have been in contact with drug dealers while playing for the Memphis Grizzlies z-bo also appeared to be in command of a small party of thugs whom he would often use to do his bidding while no charges were moved against the player following the events and Randolph remains a prominent member of the NBA the 158 pages made public by the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office leave little doubt on this athletes tendency to live a boss-like life number 4 jr. Smith in the Bloods another prominent athlete whose tattoos and social habits have been used to deduct his potential affiliation to a criminal gang his Earl Joseph jr. Smith the third who currently plays the position of shooting guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers Smith has often been considered as a member of the Bloods a dangerous african-american supergroup that originated in Los Angeles in the 1970s while one of his now removed intricate tattoos might have been a homage the gang the athlete often replaces the letter C with a K on Twitter a practice that is particularly popular among members of the Bloods there are no other indications that JR Smith might be actively involved with the clicks activities as a direct result of this lack of evidence we are forced to chalk this one up to a rumor someone might have spread to damage Smith's reputation and consider the allegations nothing but an unfounded hoax number three this Shawn Jackson in the rollin 60s neighborhood Crips as we researched each player to compile today's list we found some claims markedly easier to verify than others after all when the NFL decides to cut one of its most prominent members off following their blatant association with a criminal group there's little room for us to disprove the rumors this was the case for DeSean Jackson whose career with the Philadelphia Eagles came to an abrupt end in 2014 according to several reports and newspapers the Eagles decided to part ways with Jackson following proven interactions between the latter and high ranking members in the rollin 60s neighborhood Crips the player was reportedly photographed alongside known criminals and even flashed a hand sign similar to those used by the rollin 60s while being broadcast on national television DeSean Jackson's relationship with the gang didn't completely kill his career however the player went on to join the Washington Redskins later in 2014 and played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in both 2017 and 2018 and eventually joined the Eagles on march 13th 2019 number 2 Baron Davis and the mad Swans Bloods bouncing straight to the other end of the spectrum instead we struggled to find anything more than speculation to confirm the widespread rumor of Baron Davis's association with the mad swans Bloods one of the many subsets of the Bloods that currently roam the streets of South Los Angeles where the former basketball player turned businessman spent most of his childhood while Davis might have grown up in close contact with members of the Bloods and even directed Crips and bloods made in America a documentary that details the life of young children in gang controlled neighborhoods there is nothing concrete to link him with the mad swans on the contrary during an interview with the Dan Patrick show the athlete explained how joining a gang at the time was an automatic process that one could hardly escape Davis also went on to define himself as neutral and briefly explained how his basketball skills allowed him to keep the peace between rival gangs number one Charles Jordan in the family swamp Bloods much like Baron Davis now retired NFL wide receiver Charles Jordan also grew up in a gang-infested neighborhood of Los Angeles unlike his fellow athlete however Jordan couldn't find the strength to stay away from the world of street crime after only a year spent at the Long Beach City College where he had enrolled to play college football the aspiring athlete was back on the streets of LA here he joined the family swamp Bloods a decision he would later go on to describe as for life Jordan was shot four times while representing his gang was repeatedly booked into county jail for minor offenses and fully understood the error of his own ways regardless the athlete from South LA would still go on to achieve a pretty respectable track record among the other teams he's been a part of Jordan played for the Los Angeles Raiders in 1993 the Miami Dolphins from 1996 to 1998 and eventually joined the Memphis maniacs in 2001 this was our list of sports stars affiliated with gangs you
