Derwin Jones plays basketball at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, and his girlfriend, Dronda Lewis, also attends the school on an academic scholarship. They are both from poor Arkansas City. Derwin always talks about how poor they are. They live in a shack, and there is a hole in the floor. Now Derwin’s dream is to become rich and famous. His dream is to live in a big mansion and to drive a Mercedes Benz, Porsche, or Ferrari. He never wants to be poor again. He wants to go to the pros and make his fortune, and he isn’t going to let anything get in his way, not even his girlfriend, Dronda. He wants to be somebody and wear fine clothes and jewelry. And his dream comes true. He is drafted by the Lakers and gets a fat contract—for fifty million dollars. He buys everything money can buy.
