From Balling to Bankruptcy...

It goes without saying that NBA players make a lot of money. While not every player is as well-paid as superstars like LeBron and Steph Curry, the MINIMUM salary for an NBA rookie is currently $525,093, more money than some people make in their lifetimes. You’d think that these players recognize how lucky they are to be compensated so well, and would make smart, safe investments with their hard-earned money. While many players do save and invest their money well, unfortunately, like many other pro-athletes over the years, some NBA players have squandered their millions, whether through trusting the wrong people with their wealth or just making dumb decisions.
