Before there was LeBron James, there was Bernie Kosar. No, Kosar didn’t bring a title to the city of Cleveland but he was a kid from Northeast Ohio who starred for his local team.
Bernie was the king of Cleveland when he retired in 1993 and has earned an estimated $19 million throughout his career. Kosar lost the majority of that through bad investment deals and was forced to start over. These days he’s used his clout in the city of Cleveland to build his net worth back up.
