    Some of these owners did not grow up in situations where they were taught the value of a dollar and the importance to save for a rainy day.

    So, when they came into money, they end up buying NBA teams and other expensive things that they cannot afford and live beyond their means. When they invest money, they often fail to diversify.

    It doesn’t happen to everyone, but we really need to save some of them from a tragic fate.

    The value of $1 is 20 cents in San Francisco, and is equal to $2 in Houston.

    The rainy day is the loan interest due date with no cash in bank accounts.

    You know who else needs a financial literacy class because he clearly does not know how to manage value?

    2 factors that Tilman should not buy a nba team.

    1. he wants profit over wins.
    2. He borrows too much money to buy, 1.9 billion?

    These poor kids, they come out of managing some low margin business on a massive scale and are in debt up to their eyeballs... then they get in the league and the first thing they're doing is commissioning murals of themselves. You hate to see it.

    Schmick
    Del Frisco
    Morton
    houlihan
    Vic
    Anthony
    The Camino twins
    ... just to name a few.
