Vernon Maxwell was sued in 1998 by a woman claiming that he gave her genital herpes. There is not much information available about this online. What is available indicates that the proceedings were halted at one point after Maxwell filed for bankruptcy. According to one source he also did not show up for court in the herpes lawsuit. That is all that we know right now.

Vernon Maxwell played in the NBA for 13 seasons. He was drafted in the second round by the Denver Nuggets in 1988 but never played for them because he was traded to the San Antonio Spurs. In 1994 and 1995 he won the NBA Championship with the Houston Rockets. He finished his career as a gypsy that bounced around the league from Philadelphia to San Antonio then to Orlando, Charlotte, Sacramento, Seattle, back to Philadelphia, and finally retiring from the Dallas Mavericks in 2001.

With so many places that he played in around and after 1998 we can't help but wonder how many women may have been exposed to him.

In the video below you can see Maxwell go into the stands and PUNCH a fan at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon in 1995. He was suspended for 10 games and fined $20,000. The Rockets replaced Maxwell with Clyde Drexler as the starting shooting guard and traded him at the end of the season.
