Vin Baker – Made Over $100 Million in The NBA, Now Works at Starbucks

As if alcoholism wasn’t bad enough, Baker also made a number of unfortunate financial decisions, such as opening a restaurant that failed miserably and having a huge entourage to support.

“When you make choices and decisions and think that it will never end, and then you get into spending and addiction and more spending, it’s a definite formula for losing,” he said. “If you don’t have perspective in your personal life and you don’t understand what this $1 million or $15 million means, it will go.”, says Baker
