Larry Johnson: Career Earnings, $40 million
During his playing days, Johnson made some serious money as a member of the Charlotte Hornets and the New York Knicks. He also struck gold with an iconic endorsement deal with Converse, where he dressed up as “Grandmama.” But these days, it’s the four different women whom he’s had five children with who are making money. Johnson, the former #1 overall pick in the 1991 NBA Draft, declared bankruptcy by claiming more than $300,000 in debts, including over $120,000 in unpaid child support.
But, Johnson’s story took a very interesting turn several months ago, when one of those women alleged that Johnson has $26 million stashed away in a private account. She also claims that Johnson only sends $1,000 of the court appointed settlement of $11,000 per month in child support.
