For the longest time..
Channing Frye who spend a lot of time on the pine, is a prized member of the Cleveland Cavaliers' "morale troup." When he isn't hitting corner threes, the power forward spend an inordinate amount of time juggling his social media accounts. With all that attention being paid to browsing the Internet, he was able to uncover dirt on fellow teammate Jose Calderon.
Frye unsuspectedly landed on a webpage that estimated Jose Calderon's net worth at $2.2 Billion. The website cited "his father's stake in a Coca-Cola bottling company named FEMSA," as evidence. It was enough to convince Frye and later his teammates after the forward excitedly shared the news in a group chat. Cavs rookie Cedi Osman described the phenomenon it produced: "Everybody was talking about that, Everybody. EVERYBODY. He makes a play and it's like, Nice job, man ... $2.2 billion ... that's great."
Of course, player salary are made public for reasons pertaining to the collective bargaining agreement signed with the Player's Association. It's believed that Jose Calderon Spanish background gives the 13-year vet an air of mystification. Even though Jose Calderon was quick to call rubbish on the rumors, to little effect. The actual billionaires are a pair of Mexican heirs named Jose and Francisco Jose Calderon Rojas. Spot the difference?
