Antoine Walker, NBA star blew $110 mil, bankrupt 2 years out of game
Next step, blame team owners for exploiting their talent without making sure they also grow up. It’s a shame, either way.
NBA star Antoine Walker blew through the $110 million he earned in a successful basketball career so quickly that he was forced to file for bankruptcy just two years after he retired.
Walker, who was forced to come out of retirement and play in the obscure development league, says bad real estate deals, gambling debts and 14 years of living the high life have left him all but broke today.
Walkers story is just one of several highlighted in a new ESPN documentary Broke, which tracks to financial failure of professional athletes who once raked in millions as professional sports stars.
