This is what #GWOP is about, starting business, creating jobs and making people lives bettter.

According to ESPN,

Allen Iverson earned over $200 million in his NBA career and is broke and in debt.

Antoine Walker (university of Kentucky) earned over $110 million in his 12 year NBA career and is broke and in debt.

Moral of the story:  Don’t gamble.  Save your money and start a business (not a record label). Be a entrepreneur.
