So this is what one million dollars cash looks like. Why would it just be laying around in the Pacers locker room you ask?
Well the NBA held a league-sponsored meeting with players explaining just how important managing their finances can be.
Once practice concluded and the players completed their media obligations, they gathered in the team’s film room back in the locker room at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. There, they sat through a mandatory league meeting centered on financial education.
Managing their money is important and can’t be stressed enough. The players were instructed to always know where their money is going, and shown why hiring a business manager can be a huge help. Audits, what they are and what is needed, were also discussed.
Why they need to actually bring a million dollars in cash is beyond me. But I’m glad they did because we now have this great picture of Lance Stephenson posing with all that money. (He has deleted the photo off his Instagram account)
