At Moneyfoxs.com, Sheryl Swoopes made the list of their "25 Rich Athletes Who Went Broke". (This list was probably cribbed outright from BusinessPundit.com.)
Swoopes shows up at #17. A quote: "She filed for bankruptcy in 2004, citing mismanagement by her agents and layers (sic). She owed nearly $750,000."
The "estimated lifetime earnings" of $50 million? As Rebecca from Game Notes of Doom would say, "NO WAI."
She isn't the only female athlete to make the list. Dorothy Hamill made the list at #14, and Marion Jones made the list at #6.
