there are some report that pippen is bankrupt. He made 150+ mil in his career.

my question: if he really is bankrupt/broke, do you think he could still have a couple of mil or even 1 million left?

How would we know that when we are not his accountant?

I forgot which person who mentioned it when saying that when athletes go "broke" its not the same as the average person going "broke".

Pippen blew $150 Million but he still has a mansion in Miami and a home outside of Chicago.

He flies in to see Bulls games courtside whenever he wants and seems to be doing OK for himself for a guy who is "broke". So he probably has a decent chunk of money still left.

Thats because his name alone will get him free stuff in some instances, not only that he can possibly do things like endorsements for further money. In Chicago a dude like Pippen would never go hungry I can only imagine.

If you ever drive into Chicago from out of state and aren't from there, turn on a sports talk radio show sometime and just listen. They literally talk about Jordan like he is a Deity, even though Pippen is not nearly as well regarded, he surely is still loved there quite a bit.

Probably. I hear AI (who supposedly is bankrupt) has 30mill in a bank account that he can't open until he is 50 y/o

Well when a celeb goes "broke" they can sell a couple of their 4-5 luxury cars and or their multi million dollar mansion.


Broke as in, I have to sell some of my possessions that cost me more than most people will make in their entire lifetime.

his wife, i'm sure he'll live off his fame, though he'll probably have to sell whatever assets he has left to pay creditors
