NBA Star Antoine Walker is currently on "cautionary tale" for future NBA stars that may still be under the spirit of exuberance and frivolous spending which has characterised some of the game’s best
Antoine Walker was so broke that he sold the 2006 NBA Championship ring he won with the Miami Heats because he needed money and later filed for bankruptcy in 2010
Walker though admits that he is not ashamed of his situation and is now on a campaign to caution the new stars to be meticulous in their finances.
Four years after filing for bankruptcy, Walker is gradually getting his finances in order and he says he’s ''more confident’’ and wants to make his story public with a documentary about him
"I got robbed twice (at gunpoint) and my home was burglarized in 1999 ... as a result of having lots of money and some bad people around me.''
"If I can help bring down the number of athletes and entertainers who go broke ... then I feel I'm doing something to help the cause."
Walker’s written a book about the squandered $110 million fortune -- and also signed off on a documentary about his life called, "Gone In An Instant"
