Allen Iverson and Antoine Walker are the two most famous cases of bankruptcy quickly after retirement, despite making hundreds of millions of dollars in their careers.

They are even willing to use their money to buy houses and other expensive assets for friends or relatives. Unfortunately, it is this that makes many players infected with playboy habits and not thinking about the future. Sadly, the number of such players accounts for more than half of the NBA.
