None of the players mentioned thus far has career earnings totalling less than $100 jillion, thereby proving the earlier statement this career arc is better suited to the richer star. Those with the eight figure annual salary can offset the loss they risk making in their musical ventures - at least, as long as they are still playing. The pitfalls of not doing so are highlighted by the case of former NBA player Tyrone Nesby, a man who owes so much child support money that it has landed him in jail on multiple occasions. Part of the money Nesby made in his basketball career was spent on his musical sideline, where, under the name T-Nes, he paired with Lithuania's version of Timberland (the fabled Tele Bim Bam) to produce an album,in which he seems to talk a lot about how he spent the remainder of his money. Here is one song from the album, entitled "My Life." If Nesby could get a mulligan on the first two lines, I'm sure that he would take it.
Tyrone Nesby - All of Nesby's previously discussed business ventures seem to have come to an end. He is now reporting himself as a trainer with a company called Nes-b Sports. The crude website for the company offers plain black sandals for a mere $100.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
