25 Rich Athletes Who Went Broke | Business Pundit


"Athletes may boast eye-popping sports abilities, but when it comes to money, their inner klutzes come out. 78% of former NFL players are broke or financially stressed after retirement, and 60% of former NBA players go broke five years after retiring, according to Sports Illustrated. Broke athletes are practically an epidemic. Read about the 25 athletes who went broke below, and you’ll understand why."

Poor Rocket.

they spelled Riise's name wrong. also surprised to see him on the list.

Sometimes it kills me to see how people can be careless with money.

that sounds like 9 headaches, 9 support payments, 9 future demands for a piece of the pie, and 9 constantly angry baby mama's... no thanks.
