    Yeah, I mean KG should have at least checked in on **** from time to time. I get it that you trust people to manage your money, but holy **** that is a ton of money missing that could or easily been noticed.

    I assume you present your client with lots of JCDenton-level graphs.

    A simple example: I propose to you a grand real estate endeavor. Once you agree to the idea, I explain the monthly draws necessary to keep the investment moving along and continually update you the current status of the project. You (Garnett) are too busy with things such as TNT /Area 21 and can't physically follow up with the progress yourself or don't have the ppl available, and you trust your financial planner / manager. Then when the project is supposedly 75% complete, you're financial planner disappears and you discover that the project was fabricated from the get go.

    As I said, this is just a simple example. There are many number of cons you can make up

    When you have so much money why not just put it in treasury bonds or index funds.

    I could never figure this out. Put it in half Treasury and half S&P 500 index and you'll have more money than you will ever me. Even a 5% return on 80 millions is over $4 million a year you can spend.

    I have no idea why these guys keep getting conned into Real Estate, LLC, and other investment.

    For every Magic Johnson, Kobe, or Lebron that have done well with their investment, there are more suckers like Tim Duncan and KG that lose everything investing in things they know nothing about.
