Professional Athletes Who Wasted Their Riches

It seems like everything has to do with sports lately. Fashion, food, shows and even schools! You’d think that professional athletes would know how to keep a tight grip on their “hard earned money” but you’ll be surprised when you find out just who’s gone broke after their careers. Just don’t be too surprised.

Allen Iverson

Former NBA star, Iverson had earned over $200 million. He’s lost it all to child support, divorce settlements, debts to various businesses, gambling and alcohol addictions and even property foreclosure. Talk about hitting a rough patch in his life. When told about possible jail time for an incident this year Iverson admitted that he didn’t have the money to pay his mandated $8,000-a-month child support to his ex wife. Should have been a better person, Iverson.

Antoine Walker

You’d know this guy if you loved the Boston Celtics. All gone is his $110 million. After writing so many bad checks worth about $750,000 to casinos, the former basketball star pleaded guilty that got him probation. Foreclosure on about 14 residential homes that Walker owned was probably the last straw in all his money loss. Hopefully he’s doing perfectly fine.
