It is also gas for his boats. So I guess I would understand why it would be several thousand, but not 23k lol.

It's all about spending though. Money doesn't last forever.
The problem becomes all the money that they dole out not only to their agents, lawyers, business managers, etc. but then it's the house you buy for your parents, the new Bentleys for your teenage siblings, the boat for your cousin's nephew, the "investment" in your high school buddy's new business venture, and so on.

Yeah, it's really unfortunate they don't have someone in their ear that's giving them sound financial advise. I'm sure every NBA player has friends/brothers/cousins/inlaws/ asking for this and that, but you've got to draw the line somewhere. I agree though.

You'd think Charles Schwab would have a Pro Athlete division...or perhaps they would have Warren Buffet on speed dial.

Re: Sprewell Is Broke

Just because you make money doesn't mean you know how to handle it. There are millions of people in our country who are in dire financial straights because of bad money decisions and irresponsibility but it isn't PC to point this out when discussing welfare and so forth. It is OK to lambast Sprewell though and that is a double standard.

The ways he got to be poor is the same way millions of others have and it is a serious scourge on our country right now.

That's a good point. If everyone could budget there money better the credit card company’s would be screwed.

But when you see a guy's like Sprewell or Tyson waste more money on things like boats,jewelry ,pet tigers in a year then I will ever make in my lifetime. It's kind of hard to care about them when all of a sudden there broke.
