Delonte West: Career Earnings, $16 million
At this point, Delonte West is best known for rumors that he allegedly had a relationship with a (very famous) teammate’s mom. While many NBA fans have laughed at this story, there’s nothing funny about the actual Delonte West story. West, who suffers from manic depression, and is bipolar, blew through the $16 million he earned during his eight-year NBA career.
During the 2011 NBA lockout, West was so strapped for cash, he applied for a job at Home Depot. Things only got worse from there. In 2016, he was reportedly spotted wandering around a Jack In The Box parking lot in Houston, wearing a hospital robe and no shoes.
