    Wow. I like Mashburn's takes on ESPN and always liked him in the NBA.


    Good to see a success story like this.

    Speaking of NBA guys from Mash's era. Did anyone see Anthony Mason on NBATV's Knicks training camp special? I think he ate the entire food supply of every one of Mash's restaurant in one day. Mase got HUGE.

    Not to be a debbie downer but why does he have so many restaurants on just 4 franchises? LOL 34 outbacks and 37 papa johns in 1 state?

    More doesn't always mean good, especially when its just 5 franchises. What happens when Papa Johns and Outback enter a down year? And all in just 1 state! WTF is up with that? :confused:

    Wow, there are so many broke ass former players who could have done just a fraction as well as Mashburn and be living extremely well off.

    Really weird that a multi-millionaire is so in need of more money that he would peddle these biological weapons of mass destruction.

    Why doesn't the brother wanna help the masses?

    good for him. i'm glad not every ex-NBA player is stupid with their money. McDonald's, KFC, Starbucks would be good franchises to have. those aren't going to have down years. sounds like he's playing a mafia live or something with 37 Papa John's, 34 Outbacks and multiple car dealerships. lol. crazy.

    Good to see a story of a retired athlete putting his money to use rather going broke...

    Mashburn is smart. He is making money act as his slave instead of acting as a slave to his money.

    So what? Those Kentucky fans aren't going to eat 24-7 on Papa John's just cuz Jamal Mashburn happens to own it. Does Mashburn have a huge sign on his franchises saying "Owned by Jamal Mashburn, kentucky legend"?

    Like I you don't put all your eggs in a single basket, esp. in business.

    1) Starbucks has planned to close 800 stores over a 2 year period between 09-10

    2) I don't believe Starbucks franchises their stores anyway.

    Trust me, Mashburn is a smarter business man than you

    Mash was always outspoken. Probably killed his career as much as his knees did. A legit NBA scorer
