Antoine Walker lost 110 million dollars throughout his playing career
Last night ESPN aired its latest installment “Broke” part of ESPN’s 30 for 30 series. The documentary, “Broke” chronicles professional athletes who managed to lose all of the money they earned playing professional sports due to things like gambling, real estate, poor advice, bad “friends,” and more. Watching Antonie tell his story certainly makes you feel sorry for him. I have a hard time imagining it was just “real estate deals” gone bad, that costed Walker most of his millions. However, Walker certainly seems sincere in what he is saying.
As part of the promotion for the documentary, ‘Toine agreed to talk to Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith of First Take. He gives a very convoluted explanation to how he burned through 110 million, but does go into some detail about where he spend his millions.
