    Yeah it seems like he's been living a $30M/yr lifestyle since signing that max two years ago, but he's only actually gotten 1 full year of the max. He's earned $57M in total NBA salary and $20M from Nike. Maybe another $10-12M in miscellaneous endorsements. $80M total, probably $40-50M after taxes and agent. When you're buying $20M houses and $2M cars, money goes fast.

    If true, this is a good learning experience for him. He's still young enough to turn it around. Plenty of players didn't get second chances.

    17. 5 million for a one and a half acre lot? :picard: I thought when they said farm house it'd have a lot of land to be cultivated. Personally I'd rather have a lot of land like Kanye or will Smith

    For as much as I think Morey is overrated, I don’t think many GMs in the league would do what he did

    i don't think he's broke, but there is a reason the owners always win in labor negotiations. these dudes can't last 6 months without a paycheck.

    Right it’s pretty clear dude has major overhead. A lot of people just can’t fathom lifestyle inflation. After necessities are met, people spend the same percentage of disposable income on non-necessities regardless of how much they make.

    this... also I doubt he’s broke but people need to realize folks with new money tend to live the way folks do working average paying jobs... check to check... they can just afford to spend more on the frivolous shyt... won’t get the BMW but will get the Lambo, vacation a bit more, more purchases a LV/Gucci etc... it can add up if u ain’t used to it

    Meh, a lot of land = a lot of work

    I'd rather have less land and own some businesses instead of trying to maintain a giant ranch or bring people in to maintain it. Less ROI and more stressful than a smaller lot
