Which Multi-Million-Dollar Texas Professional Basketball Player Doesn’t Live Like One?

San Antonio Spurs All-Star 24-year-old Kawhi Leonard… is frugal… conservative… and wise… with his money.

According The Bleacher Report, Sports Illustrated writer Lee Jenkins reported some interesting facts yesterday, about Leonard.

Leonard agreed to a 5-year/$94,000,000 extension over the summer, all while driving a ’97 Chevy Tahoe nicknamed ‘Gas Guzzler’. This is the same vehicle he cruised across southern California’s Inland Empire, as a teen. Why? Leonard says, “It runs… and it’s paid off”.

Leonard has an endorsement with Wingstop, but became concerned… when he lost his Wingstop coupons this winter. Wingstop sent him more.

Despite his 5-year/$94,000,000 extension, Leonard doesn’t live like the dollar signs currently attached to his name. Why? Perhaps he’s one of the wise and few who realize his sports career dream-come-true… could end… any day… depending on various factors.

If Leonard continues his close stewardship of his money, he could easily end up set for life, financially.

Where’s the downside of that?

Wish more athletes and celebrities invested in their future, versus living for the day. Little excuse not to.

Best wishes to Kawhi Leonard! If he’s ever in DFW, I’d be happy to take him to Hooters:).
