Jason "JET" Terry's a fine ball player for Your Dallas Mavericks, worth every penny of his $8.9 mil annual salary, more or less. Apparently, the guard's also a picky eater, as the baller has his own personal chef. Actually, Terry had his own personal chef: Says here that Christopher Devereaux pleaded guilty in Sherman yesterday to bank fraud, as he stole $52,800 from Terry by swiping checks and forging his signature.
According to federal prosecutors, the 37-year-old chef also altered some checks, changing the $1,000 to $4,000, which seems very, I dunno, not smart. The feds are looking to lock up Devereaux for a good while -- he faces up to 30 years in prison -- and get him to, ahem, fork over a cool mil. --Robert Wilonsky
