Spending extravagance

Most basketball players before they go to the NBA spend their days in unpaid high school and college. The high school basketball system rules and the NCAA Division 1 (the highest ranked student basketball tournament in the US) do not allow players to receive payouts while playing.

In addition, leaving the United States to compete professionally after high school is also selected by some players. However, this option brings a lot of risks and not too many salty players.

Playing in the NBA turns many players from nothing into a millionaire at a very young age. According to the Basketball Reference, the average salary of players playing in the NBA is nearly 7 million USD / year.

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.
