Christian Laettner Made $61,000,000
Many hate Christian Laettner, but he may have played in the greatest college basketball game of all time and been a part of the greatest basketball team of all time.
Laettner had a journeyman NBA career but racked up over $61 million during 13 seasons. Yet in 2016, a group of creditors filed bankruptcy proceedings against him and said he owed over $14 million after a string of bad business deals regarding real estate in North Carolina.
Around the same time that happened, TMZ reported that Scottie Pippen had invested money with Laettner in an effort to try to buy the Memphis Grizzlies some nine years earlier. The deal never went through, and Pippen never got his money back. Thus, the former Chicago Bull ended up suing his Dream Team teammate and was awarded $2.5 million.
At last update, Laettner still owed Pippen over $600,000, which means the former Blue Devil likely won’t be attending any Dream Team reunions in the near future.
