ESPN recently released its latest 30 for 30 and if you were ever curious as to how and why some athletes blow through their money so quickly that they end up bankrupt after a long playing career you should mosey on over there and figure out how to watch it.

Jalen Rose recently sat down with Grantland and a baseball bat to discuss Broke and share his viewpoint as to why his fellow athletes are going broke so soon.

For those without video capabilities, Rose’s message is this, paraphrased:

“Hint for future millionaires, don’t start a record company, a clothing line or loan anyone money.”
