Former NBA AllStar Kenny Anderson is Broke but goes back to get his Degree
It's been 20 years since New York Schoolboy Sensation Kenny Anderson left Georgia Tech for the NBA..On Saturday after completing an online program..The 39 year old will graduate from St.Thomas University in Miami..I didn't know if i could handle going back to school at middle age..Anderson told the New York Post..Becuz ( I havent used my brain in 20 years..lol) That might be an understatement..Anderson total gross doing his career was estimated at close to 70 millon dollars..A good portion of that went to Child Support.He have 7 kids by 5 different women..A lot more went on cars,helping friends and a reckless partying lifestyle...Anderson was smart for going back to get his Diploma..Not even he knows what might happen next..But unlike most athletes who leave college early for riches of the NBA and years later end up with no money & no education..Anderson has options with that degree.....
kenny had one of hte more ridiculous comments during the lockout season of 1999. He told a reporter that if they didnt start playing again soon he might have to sell one of his 8 cars. A lot of people were making fun of that
8 cars compared to some other players that is nothing. It is sad these dudes waste so much of their money. I mean if they just put a little bit on the side, they could live comfortably off their interests.
yeah, the 8 cars is not a big deal. But it came off bad becasue he made it sound like he was struggling and had to find a way to make some extra cash. So the "i might have to sell one of my 8 cars" line didnt go over to well with some people.
Whuts funny to me is dude saying he havent use his brain in 20 years..
I will never understand how someone can go through that kind of money in one lifetime.
