Eric Williams Made $40,000,000
Eric Williams played in the NBA from 1995 to 2007. His best year came during the 1996-97 season, when he put up 15 points per game at forward for the Boston Celtics. Despite reportedly going broke and homeless after making $40 million in his career, the worst thing that happened to Williams after leaving the NBA was appearing on the reality show Basketball Wives: Miami.
He made a fool of himself on the show by getting in an argument with his ex-wife, Jennifer Williams, and throwing a drink in her face. He didn’t exactly make friends with the other wives on the show, either, as Tami Roman, ex-wife of former NBA player Kenny Anderson, commenting on the news that Williams was broke and homeless, added insult to injury by saying, “God doesn’t like ugly.”
