I'd say he's not broke.

Check out the other people they have on the site.

He'd probably have some decent stories... played in DET... showed Big Ben the ropes before he became a force... played at Georgetown with A.I. under John Thompson... could be interesting!

Really, this just sounds like a good business idea and taking advantage of your celebrity. Additionally, doesn't he work in community relations type of role?

Also, going through that site, there's far more than just dinner. The public speaking, camp coaching are beneficial for organizations. Instead of just going through his agent, you have this group. Makes sense.

I wonder if this guy is broke too.

Coaching

To be the best you need to learn from the best. Hiring Jerome as a coach will give you access to a former NBA power forward. Jerome will coach a group of 1-6 people drills that helped him become a pro athlete.
this one would be pretty cool

Yah that is awesome. Can't ask for better coaching if you had a bunch of friends who play casually and want to get better.

Why is there a smiley face for this thread? We shouldn't wish for someone like him to be broke.

probably not broke by typical North American standards.


maybe by NBA standards.. really though, it wouldn't be surprising if he was broke with the number of athletes that go bankrupt once they stop getting players salaries.

Plus he had a pretty short career and never made boatloads of money or anything.
