It seems almost inconceivable that professional athletes out there are actually living paycheck to paycheck. That fact was alluded to by CJ McCollum earlier this month when he estimated that 150 NBA Players Are Living Paycheck to Paycheck. … “I would say out of 450 players…150 probably are living paycheck to paycheck,” he added.

During an interview with Vlad TV, the former NFL player stated that young pros are not becoming head of households when getting millions of dollars, but rather heads of an entire family that include wife, mom, dad, aunt, cousins, and more.
“When I played, guys were living check to check.”
Wiley spoke on players not properly budgeting their money because their thinking the money is always going to be there.
