Athletes Who Might Go Broke
We all know by now that our former favorite baller Allen Iverson can’t even afford a Big Mac these days. And it’s a shame because at one point he was worth $150 million.
But we’ve seen this story all too often of athletes getting rich then losing it in a whiff. We know AI won’t be the last, so we looked at some athletes who are blowing money too fast.
Here’s a look at athletes who should start saving up before they end up broke, too.
Antonio Cromartie – He’s got at least nine kids and more than half a dozen baby mommas. When it comes to paying all those bills, things are going to get rough.
Michael Vick – He lost all his money when he went to jail, then he got back, but his new contract isn’t for a lot of guaranteed money.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. – Money Mayweather is blowing his money as fast as anyone else. Mike Tyson, anyone? Yeah, he looks like he may be heading down that financial road.
Jamarcus Russell – There’s only one reason someone who got paid $31 million is still looking for work. That money is going faster than you can say “worst draft pick of all time.”
Tracy McGrady – He’s been trying to get back in the league and finally played a bit for the Spurs. But noooobody plays overseas who’s rolling in dough.
