hahahhahahhaha how do these idiots continue to squander millions of dollars? They really need to teach these losers how to better handle money before they get to the pros. smh

http://l.yimg.com/a/p/sp/editorial_image/cb/cbcac58500ed3735b7e6073d8c692045/former_ravens_db_chris_mcalister_is_already_broke. jpg

Three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Chris McAlister has only been out of the game for a year, and already, he's telling the court system that he's broke.

McAlister is locked up in a child support battle with his ex-wife Marlene, and is trying to get his child support payments lowered. He currently owes her $11,000 per month. In documents filed to the court, claims he can't pay her because he doesn't have any money. From TMZ:

In the docs, Chris -- a 1st round NFL draft pick in 1999 who played in the league for 10 years -- states, "I have been unemployed since 2009. I have no income."

He adds, "I live in my parent's home. My parents provide me with my basic living expenses as I do not have the funds to do so."

This is a guy who's only been out of the game for one year. Who's giving him financial advice, Ric Flair? McAlister's not even officially retired. He spent 10 years with the Ravens, and was once considered one of the best corners in the game. He was with the Saints, in 2009, but didn't see a lot of playing time before being released.

In 2004, he signed a seven-year, $55 million contract. Now, some of that was money that he never saw, and he was released after five years of the contract, so it wouldn't be accurate to say he completely squandered $55 million.

But he did squander plenty. The signing bonus was reportedly $10 million, and it also included a $7.5 million roster bonus for 2005. The year before he signed the contract, he made almost $6 million. The last two years of the $55 million contract, which McAlister didn't see, were worth $8 million each.

As the Baltimore Sun points out, it wouldn't be surprising if McAlister was "broke as a joke" given his hardcore partying habits.

If the name Marlene McAlister sounds familiar, it's because her and Chris' marital issues found their way to TMZ once before. In April of last year, Marlene claimed that Chris kicked her out of his home when she refused to have an abortion.

Roger Goodell can probably go ahead and cross McAlister's name off of his list of guys to invite to speak at the rookie symposium.

Maybe they need to have a course early on for some of these players on better ways to handle their money, especially ones that come from the projects.

-Allen Iverson has reportedly gone from 11-time NBA all-star to financial deadbeat.


02-14-2012, 03:14 PM
I like Iverson but I think that shit is hilarious. If some athlete, actor, whatever is making millions a year then its their own fault if they waste that money. Like I heard Nicholas Cage had to sell his bigass mansion and shit. Fuck em.

We have people who can barely afford to feed their family or pay their hospital bills and I'm supposed to feel sorry for some asshole who blew all his money on a yacht and a mansion? If you achieve that level of wealth and you can't handle it then you don't deserve it. I respect rich people who manage their money well and give to charity, I laugh my ass off at the pathetic ones who waste it all.

A lot of these guys live paycheck to paycheck like many people do. That's why they usually fold to the owners in the labor disputes. With their lifestyle, they literally can't afford to miss a couple of those $50,000 a piece paychecks during a strike or a lock out

That whole "practice" thing was Iverson in a nutshell. He just doesnt get it. He's not a big picture type of guy.
Allen Iverson had a very valid point about that whole "practice thing"
His point was:"Why are we having a press conference, why are we spending so much Time discussing 'practice?'"
Part of that issue was Iverson vs. Larry Brown, the latter being a man who was widely considered to be disagreeable by many of his players, and who had no problems snaking 1 team to go coach another. His character should come into question as frequently as Iverson's.
It's common in all sports for veterans to have amended practice routines. Iverson was 1 of the best players in his era, by far the best player on the Sixers; and him going all out in every game is as big a part of his legacy as any statistics, awards, wins, or records. But certain people tried to use "practice" to diminish all of that.
The sports media likes to use the phrase: "He just doesn't get it," when an athlete doesn't kiss their collective ass.

major sports leagues should teach financial management to all incoming rookies, and maybe even to vets to avoid situations like this. you can talk all the shit you want about how they go broke, but you never had millions of dollars in your hand, so you can't say you would not do the same, because talking about how you would manage your money you don't have is easier than actually managing the money when you do have it

--Allen Iverson Atlanta Mansion to Hit Foreclosure Auction

Former NBA star Allen Iverson's about to lose his massive Atlanta mansion -- because the bank is gearing up to sell the house at auction next week, TMZ has learned.

Iverson purchased the home back in 2010 for $4.5 million -- but according to official records, he defaulted on his mortgage and the bank foreclosed. Now, the home is set to be sold at auction on December 4th ... along with all the crap inside.

Iverson's currently going through a nasty divorce with his estranged wife, and he's famously been dealing with money problems ... including a nearly-million-dollar debt to a Georgia jeweler.

A.I. still has a chance to save it if he comes up with the cash before auction time ... but the clock's ticking ... fast.

Calls to Iverson's camp weren't returned.


12-15-2012, 12:10 PM
LOL@Iverson losing his home hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. That's what his dumb ass gets for not paying his mortgage. What is he doing with his money? How could he be a millionaire and lose his home?

Paying tons and tons of money to his ex probably doesn't help. No bimbo should be getting 5 or 6 figures a month for child support, cause you know she's spending a lot of that money on new shoes, designer bags, and salon appts. Dudes with a lot of money should never get married or get involved seriously with somebody.

12-22-2012, 12:22 PM
You're right but there's some good women even though that may be hard to believe. I've met so many asshole women but i can't stereotype all black women saying that they're golddiggers and stuck up because that's not true. I know you're gonna laugh at what i'm saying since i'm always dissing black women. I've had a few good black women before but i've been having bad experiences with black women in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC. I had some good black women in Cleveland and i'm gonna have to go back there to look for a woman. I do think that the justice system needs to be changed when it comes to women getting a lot of money from their ex-boyfriends or ex-husbands for child support and alimony. Most women definitely can't be trusted when it comes to them getting with guys that got a lot of money and most guys that are entertainers and athletes aren't gonna stop messing with cute women because they're addicted to sex hahahahahahahahahaha.

Men need to understand that there's more than sex involved when you're in a relationship with women. So many men don't have a clue what love is. They think sex is love and it's not. Love is when you can be with a person for 36 years through the good and bad times like my parents. My mom has breast cancer and my dad is taking care of her even though she hasn't stopped working. Now that's real love because he could've left her. Male entertainers and athletes need to find women that aren't only interested in their money and there's some women out there that aren't golddiggers. Male entertainers and athletes get upset when they have to pay their ex-girlfriends or ex-wives a lot of money for child support or alimony but these guys knew what these women were about when they started dating. You can figure out what a woman is about when you've been dating for several weeks or a month.

What are you talking about? Black men entertainers and athletes will continue to get taken advantage of by black women as long as they're only thinking about sex when they meet black women. So they need to stop complaining about black women taking a lot of their money when they can't figure out after several weeks of dating that the black women they're meeting are golddiggers.

-Kearse house in foreclosure

Former Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jevon Kearse is facing foreclosure on his Pompano Beach, Fla., home according to the South Florida Business Journal.

Kearse bought the house for just over $6 million in 2004, the year he left the Titans to sign a $65 million package with the Eagles. He later took out a mortgage on the home for just over $5 million.

Kearse was the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in leading the Titans to the Super Bowl in 1999, and he later appeared in a Super Bowl in his first year with the Eagles.

The Eagles released him after the 2007 season, and he returned to Tennessee to play two more seasons with the Titans.

02-10-2013, 04:28 AM
AI needs to take any job he can get at this point


Former NBA star Allen Iverson isn't having a good week. First, a judge skewered him Tuesday for bad parenting skills (http://articles.philly.com/2013-02-05/sports/36745047_1_donnie-and-dallas-tawanna-unfit-parent), and now he's lost his giant Atlanta mansion to foreclosure (http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball-dont-lie/allen-iverson-loses-atlanta-mansion-foreclosure-auction-according-180700283--nba.html). Iverson's nearly 10,000-square-foot home on Atlanta's exclusive West Paces Ferry Road had been on the market for $2.5 million, but it was sold at auction Tuesday back to Georgia Primary Bank, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported (http://www.accessatlanta.com/news/entertainment/celebrity-news/allen-iverson-loses-atlanta-mansion-in-foreclosure/nWHFw/). Iverson built the home for $4.5 million in 2009 and lived there with his wife and five kids, but he and his wife recently divorced (http://blogs.phillymag.com/the_philly_post/2013/02/04/atlanta-judge-finalizes-allen-iversons-divorce-calls-terrible-father/). A current listing (http://www.beacham.com/5096724/675-west-paces-ferry-road) on the house shows the asking price at $2.8 million.

http://www.blogcdn.com/realestate.aol.com/blog/media/2013/02/allen-iverson.jpgDon't think this is the first time Iverson has lost a home to foreclosure. Back in 2011, when he was shooting for the Denver Nuggets, Iverson also lost his posh $3.875 million Cherry Hills, Colo., mansion to foreclosure after defaulting on the mortgage, according to the Denver Post (http://www.denverpost.com/popular/ci_17539872). Luckily, a buyer had entered into contract to buy the home before Iverson defaulted, the Post said.

Iverson's Atlanta home is quite the luxury estate, one you wouldn't expect to see on the auction block. The listing (http://www.beacham.com/5096724/675-west-paces-ferry-road) calls it "one of, if not the finest, private gated estates ever to become available in Atlanta." Iverson had sunk $4.5 million into building it with a custom bar, gourmet kitchen, master suite with "spa-like" bath and luxury accents such as copper gutters.

You would think after defaulting on his last two mortgages that this idiot would stop buying mansions.

02-23-2013, 04:37 PM
I agree with Check Two. I think it's funny also when athletes and entertainers lose their homes because these fools don't know how to manage money. You rarely hear about white entertainers and athletes losing their homes. I read about that clown Robert Swift at Yahoo.com today refusing to leave his home. His dumb ass is gonna get forced outta his house by the police and i know he probably doesn't care about the police coming to his house. LOL@Allen Iverson hahahahahahahahahaha. He's a ghetto nigga just like the majority of black NBA players and black NFL players who spend their money foolishly. I don't have no sympathy for them because there's no way you should hear about entertainers going broke.

-Ex-NBA All-Star Chris Gatling accused of squatting in, trying to rent out Ariz. home


One-time NBA All-Star Chris Gatling faces criminal charges after Arizona police say he illegally occupied a Paradise Valley, Ariz., home for more than a year, and then tried to rent the place on Craigslist, according to the Arizona Republic:

Chris Gatling is accused of breaking into a key box and living in the home from July 2010 to August 2011. A police report says the homeowners lived in California but had left the power on.

The TV station reports that he later listed the four-bedroom house for rent for $800 and called it an “Ex-NBA” home online.

Court records say that Gatling got a down payment from one potential renter but that another got suspicious and contacted police.

Gatling’s attorney, Michael Alarid, said the case is a “misunderstanding.”

It very well could be. Everyone's innocent until proven guilty in this country, and besides, misunderstood stuff goes up on Craigslist all the time.

Gatling has also been accused of forging personal checks from his ex-girlfriend and "funneling the money through College Bound All-Stars, a traveling youth basketball league that Gatling managed and operated," according to Phoenix CBS affiliate KPHO-TV.

The Golden State Warriors selected Gatling, a 6-foot-10 forward/center, out of Old Dominion University with the 16th pick in the 1991 NBA draft, and he provided some low-post scoring and rebounding for a go-go 55-27 Don Nelson squad led by the brilliant guard play of Chris Mullin, Tim Hardaway and Sarunas Marciulionis. He performed ably as a reserve big man in Oakland for four years before being shipped off to the Miami Heat, a trade kickstarting a league-wide ramble that would see Gatling traded nine times and play for eight different NBA teams (he had two separate stints with Miami) over the course of an 11-year career that ended following the 2001-02 season.

He peaked as a member of the 1996-97 Dallas Mavericks, leading the team in scoring with 19.1 points per game off the bench and earning an All-Star berth despite only making one start (after his selection, in the team's final game before the All-Star break). Shortly after that honor, the Mavs promptly sent him east to the New Jersey Nets as part of a nine-player deal that sent Gatling, Sam Cassell, Jim Jackson, George McCloud and Eric Montross to the New Jersey Nets in exchange for Shawn Bradley, Ed O'Bannon, Robert Pack and Khalid Reeves. (Ah, '90s blockbusters!)

How did the Elizabeth, N.J., native respond to being traded to his home-state squad?

“I hope [the Nets] have the right kind of headbands,” he said, according to John Brennan of the Bergen Record. (Gatling liked headbands. Headbands were sort of his thing.)

Gatling isn't the only former NBA big man to find himself in some legal trouble related to home-occupancy issues. Last month, former Seattle SuperSonics/Oklahoma City Thunder center Robert Swift was forced to leave his Seattle home, which he'd occupied (somewhat grossly and troublingly) despite it having gone into foreclosure.


05-11-2013, 11:45 AM
LOL@Chris Gatling hahahahahahahahahaha. I saw footage on Youtube of former NBA player Antoine Walker doing a interview with Stephen A Smith and a white guy talking about how he lost all his money. He said people think he lost his money to gambling and he said that's not it. He said he lost money to bad real estate investments. But he also said he would spend money on his friends like paying for their meals at a restaurant, buying them clothes and buying their airplane tickets. What a idiot. He probably bought them drinks when he took them to the club too and he probably bought them cars LOL.

Vince Young got cut by Green Bay recently. So what he's gonna do about a job? He has no money. See this is exactly why black athletes should save their money because you aren't gonna be in the NFL and NBA forever. Stop buying expensive material things and trying to impress women. Stop being with golddigging women and find a woman that isn't after your money. I just watched a interview with Mike Tyson on Youtube a few days ago on The View tv show and i saw his wife in the audience. Mike was saying that he's broke and when i saw his wife, i couldn't believe how cute she was. She must be a good woman because most women wouldn't be with Mike because of his money situation.

It was funny to hear Mike say that him and Robin Givens were having sex after they got divorced hahahahahahahahaha. He said they didn't wanna be with each other but they didn't wanna stop having sex with each other LOL. So this just shows me that Robin's story about being scared of Mike and how he beat her is bullshit because if she was really scared of him, she wouldn't have been seeing him after they were divorced.

- Curt Schillingís estate sale features a strange look into the former pitcherís possessions

The former Boston Red Sox pitcher is currently being sued by Rhode Island's economic development agency after 38 Studios, his startup video game company, collapsed into bankruptcy in 2011. The state had approved a $75 million loan in 2010 to get Schilling's company to move to Rhode Island.

Schilling, who now works for ESPN as an analyst, said he personally lost $50 million of his own career earnings on the failed venture.

Items for sale include:

-A pile of crutches with charlie brown christmas tree


-A pile of chargers, a lock, an outdated camera and some playing cards


-A broken ping pong table


-Flubber hats signed by Robin Williams

The financial devastation of former NBA superstar Allen Iverson points to the financial struggle that the player has endured after a series of poor economic choices.

Rather than focusing on the negative side of player outcomes, how about we look at the positive side? See Jamal Mashburn, a guy with a lot of talent, but not nearly as much as Iverson. Rather than blowing all of his money on nothing and ending up in the financial doghouse, Mashburn has transformed the pennies of the NBA into a net worth that nearly matches that of many NBA owners.

Jamal Mashburn earned $75 million during his NBA career, prior to having his career cut short due to knee injuries. Allen Iverson earned more than $200 million during his career, prior to having his career cut short due to his nasty attitude, along with his lack of respect for authority. Mashburn now owns 34 Outback Steakhouse restaurants, 37 Papa Johnís restaurants, two car dealerships, and a real estate company in the state of Kentucky. Iverson is broke, and owes $30 million in debt.ď The amount of money that you have has got nothing to do with what you earn. People earning a million dollars per year can have no money. People earning $35,000 per year can be quite well off. Itís not what you EARN. Itís what you SPEND.Ē

11-19-2013, 03:14 PM
Good for Jamal Mashburn!!!!

12-07-2013, 12:13 PM
Jamal Mashburn spoke the truth about how foolish people waste their money. I didn't know Jamal owned that many businesses. Good for him. He's a smart brother. So i guess he's not commentating NBA games anymore. Wasn't he doing that for ABC?

12-14-2013, 11:33 PM
A lot of this $$ made by these players could've been invested in a business or something in order to make more $$. I just don't get the logic of spending $$ on things that aren't necessary.

12-17-2013, 12:27 PM
Mantis69, you have to understand the mentality of most black NBA players. The reason why so many of them spend their money foolishly is because a lot of them grew up poor. So they figure they wanna buy expensive and nice things that they never had when they were young. I can understand wanting to have nice things that you couldn't buy when you were poor but you don't have to buy expensive stuff. I have 2 jobs and i'm able to buy things that i wanted that i couldn't get when i was young but i don't buy expensive stuff because it's not smart to buy expensive stuff because that can cause you to go broke. As long as i got a car, a place to live, clothes, sneakers, music cd's, movies, food, i'm happy. These guys also go broke because they have girlfriends or wives and they wanna impress them by buying expensive nice stuff for them to keep their women happy hahahahahahahahahahaha. If they don't buy expensive nice stuff for their women, they will be alone and they're afraid of being alone because they can't go a long time without pussy hahahahahahahahahahaha.

What i said is also for black NFL players.

That's right. Most of them. I know there's only a few black NBA and NFL players who don't spend their money foolishly.

That's right. Most of them. I know there's only a few black NBA and NFL players who don't spend their money foolishly.

do you know every single one of them and keep track of their finances

12-17-2013, 03:31 PM
If you would've listened to what i said, i said there's a few of them. I don't need to know every last one of them to know what their financial situation is. I know most of them spend their money foolishly because that's what ignorant black men do and the majority of black NFL and NBA players are ignorant LOL. How else do you explain how these idiots act when they got tattoos all over their body? People that got tattoos all over their body are retarded. These guys ought to be lucky they're playing in the NBA and NFL because most of them couldn't get a regular job because a white man isn't gonna hire them because of their ignorance and i bet most of them can't read. Most black athletes go to college just to play sports anyway. They don't give a damn about a education. I heard a rumor that Derrick Rose had somebody take his SAT test for him before he got to college and i'm not surprised.

12-17-2013, 04:26 PM
you don't know. you're assuming

12-17-2013, 09:34 PM
Charles is right. 72% of all pro athletes are broke within a few years after retiring

12-17-2013, 10:37 PM
If you put millions of dollars in most people's hands who never had that kind of money chances are they go broke too. It's like when people win millions in the lotto they go broke fast, because they never had that kind of money, and simply don't know how to handle it.

12-18-2013, 03:46 PM
Hectis and Barcode speaking the truth. It's really sad that so many poor blacks play the lottery because they're trying to get rich and the majority of them will never win the lottery hahahahahahahahahahaha. Even if they did win the lottery like Hectis said, they will go broke because they never had that much money. I would never waste money on playing the lottery.

Black NFL and NBA athletes also need to stop buying expensive cars and getting stuff added to the cars or trucks like rims, loud stereo system and speakers, tv's, lights underneath the cars or trucks, tinted windows. The reason i say this is because car and truck repairs are very expensive and it costs a lot of money to keep a car and truck running. I would never buy a expensive car if i had a lot of money because like i said, car repairs are expensive. I barely make enough money now to pay for car repairs and i got 2 jobs. I'm lucky that my former job supervisor who's a hispanic guy that referred me to his cousin that's a car mechanic. So whenever i go to him to get my car fixed, he doesn't charge me a lot of money unlike places like Midas, Speedy, Goodyear, Firestone that charge a lot of money for repairs. I've taken my car before to those car repair shops i named and ended up in debt.

These athletes think just because they can afford to pay for expensive car repairs that it's ok to buy expensive cars. But what their dumb asses don't understand is that their career is gonna come to a end and what are they gonna do about paying for car repairs and paying a expensive car note.

--- Former NFL quarterback Vince Young has gone from $25.7 million guaranteed to Chapter 11



01-25-2014, 02:30 PM
I'm not surprised.

^ Foolish (re. Vince Young).

Doesn't the league pay out a pretty good pension (ie. an allowance to some of these overpaid idiots)? I wonder what the fine print is on it.

01-25-2014, 03:05 PM
I would think former NBA players and former NFL players get a pension check but who knows. I bet if these idiots do get a pension check, they probably still spend their money foolishly hahahahahahahahahaha. You know for them to keep a woman happy, they gotta spend a lot of money on her which also keeps them broke LOL.

---- Vin Baker is auctioning off his gold medal from the 2000 Summer Olympics

In 1993, when he was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in the years before rookie-scale contracts, Vin Baker signed a 10-year agreement with the team. That deal included an opt-out after the sixth season, by which time Baker had made nearly $17.3 million. He then signed a seven-year, $86.7 million contract with the Seattle SuperSonics, though he chose to negotiate an opt-out settlement after five years in order to make himself a free agent, strangely negating the final two years of the deal. The smaller contracts Baker played on over his final few seasons put his official career earnings at nearly $100 million.

Half of that career was spent disappointing his teams and various fan bases, as Baker struggled with weight issues and an admitted alcohol problem. Though he made four consecutive All-Star teams from 1995-98, Baker’s confidence tailed off in the 1997-98 season (especially at the free-throw line), and his weight ballooned extensively in the lockout months following that campaign.

Baker was still held in high enough regard in 2000 to be awarded a spot on Team USA’s men’s basketball entry at that year’s Summer Olympics. Though the team isn’t as fondly remembered as other recent Olympic outfits, it still earned a gold medal in the tournament.

According to Grey Flannel auctions, via Sports Illustrated, Baker has decided he doesn’t need his medal any more, and he’s deciding to put it up for auction. From the Gray Flannel description:

The gold-plated silver medal weighs 6.85 oz, is 5mm thick and measures 68mm across. It is attached to a 39” turquoise-blue ribbon embroidered with “SYDNEY 2000” in silver. The medal features a design by Australian designer Wojciech Pietranik; it depicts Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, seated above the stadium and chariot along with “XXVII OLYMPIAD SYDNEY 2000”. This translates to “Games of the 27th Olympiad Sydney 2000”. The artist’s initials “WP” appear at the bottom of the design in relief. The verso of the medal features the Olympic rings along with an image of the Sydney Opera House and an Olympic torch. “BASKETBALL” and “MEN” have been engraved along the perimeter. The medal is in MINT condition and comes in a white leather case.

The minimum bid starts at $35,000, and the auction runs until Aug. 20.

Whether Baker is selling the medal because of financial constraints is anyone’s guess, but we can at least try to make an educated one. Baker still has lawsuits pending against his former business advisers, seeking eight figures’ worth of reimbursement from one Daniel Brodeur. From the Hartford Courant in 2012:

According to the lawsuit filed earlier this month in Superior Court in Middletown, Baker says Brodeur and the accounting firm "advanced their own interests to the detriment of mine, and breached their fiduciary responsibilities, obligations, and duties imposed on them by engaging in … dishonest, disloyal and immoral conduct."

According to Baker's application for prejudgment remedy, Baker says that "virtually all of my earnings were spent and/or my investments lost all or nearly all of their value, such that my home in Durham was foreclosed and I was forced to liquidate substantial assets for little or no value, leaving me without resources to meet my financial obligations and living expenses."

Brodeur on Thursday called Baker's allegations "unfounded." Brodeur said he worked closely with Baker's parents throughout the years and that his firm was "just one aspect" of Baker's financial team.

"He had other business advisers," Brodeur said.

Vin Baker, in a more recent New York Daily News interview, professed his career earnings were actually around $105 million, which gives us further insight into the uncounted amount he received in his 2004 buyout. In that same interview, Brodeur is quoted as saying that Baker lost “in the neighborhood of $16 to $17 million” in his settlement with the Boston Celtics, a pretty steep price to pay for wanting to work for another team.

That decision may have been clouded by drinking. As of the Daily News interview from 2013, Baker claims to have been sober for two years, and it features him doing volunteer work at his local church, while studying to get a master’s degree in divinity at a theological school in Manhattan.

It’s unclear as to how much Baker’s medal will fetch. It certainly is a rare artifact, but a memento from a somewhat-disgraced player working on a rather unloved Dream Team entry (Saturday Night Live even produced a parody ad to mock the team’s endless mean-mugging) isn’t exactly the hottest buy around.

Which is a shame. We hope things turn up for Baker, starting with this auction.

That's sad about Vin Baker. I liked him when he was with Milwaukee when Glenn Robinson and Ray Allen were there.

NHL player broke after parents borrowed millions in his name

Columbus Blue Jackets star Jack Johnson filed bankruptcy last month after his parents took $15 million in his name from his accounts.

11-22-2014, 12:36 PM
always watch out for shady relatives when you sign that contract

12-18-2014, 03:17 PM
I agree with Holocaust LOL. You also gotta stay away from your friends too because they be after your money. Antoine Walker who's a former NBA player who's broke talked about how much money he wasted on his friends.

12-19-2014, 04:43 PM
Most of these professional athletes get a pension, ie. an allowance, so essentially they mismanaged their salary money. Still collecting money though. Hard to feel sorry for them. When they claim bankruptcy, they should have their pension money taken. Then they would be "broke".

12-19-2014, 04:45 PM
I figured former players get a pension/retirement check. Thanks for saying that because I asked about that before.
