Another Broke Former NBA Star

This time, it's Dennis Rodman.

It would be interesting to hear of stories of retired NBA stars with lives after basketball, and investment portfolios that reflect their hard work while playing. These examples would be great for current players and future stars to study and behold.

Memo to everyone: the huge money you make is for a limited period of time, so save your millions and make them last.

Somehow, I think that these examples get lost on young men, who get to where they are at the pinnacle of a game because they believe that they are invincible. Many probably think that the fate that has befallen Dennis Rodman and Allen Iverson, among others, won't befall them.

The will not to believe is pretty formidable, isn't it?
