Orlando Magic player Terrence Ross only had it in the shop for a flat tire!
This was not how rich-guy life was supposed to go. Terrence Ross of the Orlando Magic is a very happy owner of a Lamborghini Urus, or at least he was. The NBA star has revealed on his Instagram account he received an early morning phone call from the police the other day informing him his stolen car had been found but was, sadly, totaled. Ross was understandably confused because he had brought the Urus to the local dealership after it got a flat tire. It was an easy fix and he thought nothing more of it.
According to Ross, a couple of thieves broke into the dealership late at night and managed to locate where management stored the keys to several cars.
They just happened to grab the set that belongs to Ross' Lambo. It only took a few minutes and several clicks for the culprits to match the keys to Ross' Urus. And then they took off. They must have triggered the building's alarm because someone called the police informing them of the stolen vehicle.
The police were soon in hot pursuit but instead of pulling over they made a run for it and were completely unaware the SUV still had a flat. The driver lost control and ended up crashing the Urus into a building, totaling it. This was all explained to Ross, making his surprise and anger justified.
He only got the car three months ago as a 30th birthday present and proclaimed it was "the greatest car I ever had." But don't feel too badly for the guy. We're sure he got a good insurance policy that covers things like theft. He actually made the Instagram video at the Lambo dealer while doing some car shopping. Ross currently has a four-year, $54 million contract with the Magic.
But the one thing money might not be able to immediately buy is another orange-on-black Urus. That color combo is supposedly difficult to find. Unless he's willing to wait, the poor guy will just have to settle for his second color choice. Life's tough sometimes, right?
