Money To Blow: 8 Athletes Who Lost Their Fortunes Because Of Dumb Sh-t [PHOTOS]

 

When you’re an athlete (or anyone with more than a little extra pocket change) having a good business manager is of the utmost importance.  Coming into a lot of money can be as much of a gift as a curse, and if you don’t believe us, take Vince Young, for example. The former Tennessee Titan has been economically crippled thanks to some shady advice from people he trusted, and the undeniable power of the Cheesecake Factory.

As previously reported, Young allegedly dropped $5,000 a week on appetizers, strawberry lemonade, and the luscious dessert options offered by the restaurant chain.  With his funds on struggle mode, Young will have lots of time to ponder his bad decisions. Hopefully he won’t make the same mistake twice, if he can climb his way back to the top, and judging by the optimistic disposition on his Twitter page, he  can definitely make it happen.

Rather than completely write him off for his money missteps, we here at Hip-Hop Wired are looking at the positive side of things. Spending his money on nonsense bought Young a membership into an elite club of other athletes who have followed a similar path.

Peep our list of other athletes who drained their bank accounts, behind dumb sh-t.
