  • The Crazy Truth About The Richest NBA Player Never Seen | UNTOLD

    In March of 2016 Forbes released its list of the highest-earning retired athletes of 2015.However, when many people read the name of the fourth person on the list it left them confused. Unlike Michael Jordan who retired in 2003, David Beckham in 2013 and Arnold palmer in 2006, this player retired all the way back in 1987. That’s more than 30 years ago! Long before players were getting paid ridiculous amounts of money like they are today.

    If he has been out of the game for so many years, how was he able to earn so much money? And for an NBA player who was unknown to most people, it’s a fair question to ask. Simply put, after retiring from the NBA, he made a wise decision that made him millions of dollars, years after his time spent in the league. This is The Crazy Truth About The Richest NBA Player Never Seen!

Junior Bridgeman, open the door a very long time ago for so many of ur an to pick up touch an get into our own zone an learn from his story and countless other,'s, who made the very best, out of they're situation.b"Yes", I did not always have it, but, the key is he made something, out of what he had to work with, Guy's who take the time, to invest with what they have, learn how to use their money wisely, so that they re not looking over their shoulders.......... We can not look at, he had money to start with, cause then, I have to remind you, About heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, NBA Star Allen Iverson, Ikon rap star Jay-Z, All of these dudes came from nothing, just to name a few, But, what (you) do, with what (you) make, tells the story of what's on ur mind moving forward.......................... Learn how to make the right choices as (you) learn how to grow in ur craft an push ur self beyond measures, if (you) plan to stay an remain on top of ur goals in life. Because only the strong survive an all of these people, with or without money, made choices, wrel, (you) r human as well an we need to stop making excuses an learn how to become as successful as the next human being. Also check out the story of the guy, who had "nothing", but, now owns Sam's Club.......................................

                                                                                        It’s sad when you see players who earned millions blow all their money and become poor. Tyson made over 500 million and was broke until his Vegas show thing helped him out. I have heard of former players going back and selling drugs and working regular jobs. Can you imagine making 100 million dollars and then 15 yrs later being completely broke?
