    He grades as a 1, but probably won't go until late second if at all. He will play in the NBA. but probably go the D League route.

    Unless he has graduated this is dumb. He'll be working at a car dealership at 35.

    60% of NBA players are broke 5 years after exiting the league, and the average career span is 4.8 years. So most NBA players are broke 9.8 years after entering the league, which is well before 35.

    Look at the bankruptcy rates among professional athletes in general and basketball players in particular. The majority of them are filing within a few years of the end of their careers.

    The characteristics are very common. They spend recklessly, the save little, they help out friends and family, they make shitty investments, they never tone down their lifestyle when the huge pay days end.

    For perspective... You and I have more money than Scottie Pippen. You have more money in your wallet right now than Antoine Walker has in all his assets combined. Let that sink in.
