Nothing brings a family closer than cold cash, am I right?
When athletes come into money and fame, they're typically faced with questions like: "How are we going to spend this wisely?" and "How can I make sure this money is here for my kids when I'm gone?" Sometimes, however, spending heads take a more careless direction, where the only questions are "How much for the baby elephant?" and “Does the John Varvatos edition come in gator skin?”
Like any other brand of celebrity, athletes coming into money have to deal with these quandaries, as well as the issue of how to distribute the wealth to their families.

Hey, it’s not the athlete’s fault they're so generous. Or is it?
