Rumeal Robinson is the latest in a long line of former professional athletes to fall on financial hard times. People sometimes wonder how such a thing could happen. Here's one way, as reported by Gus Garcia-Roberts of the Miami New Times:
He made more than $5 million in NBA salary alone, but blew much of it on a strip club habit that would have made Pacman Jones blush. "He would go on binges of two whole weeks where he spent $20,000 a night at a strip club," says Barrows, his brother. "Not only that, but he'd also have a bunch of the strippers come back to his place, get buck naked, and clean his house for $500 or $1000 each."
