Kevin Garnett 1976

Garnett retired in 2016 as the highest-paid NBA player in history at the time, having earned $326 million. Kevin’s lawsuit alleges that Wertheim funneled money to a guy named Charles Banks IV who then invested the money in a bunch of shady ventures. When it’s all said and done, Kevin claims $77 million vanished. When you factor in taxes, he lost almost 45% of all the money he earned.

*Who is helping you watch over your money?

What are you investing in and how risky is it?

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
