How Spencer Haywood Lost $3 Billion Because Of His Agent

For the many unknowledgeable of Spencer Haywood, he was an NBA superstar in the 1970s — but his agent was far from it.

Haywood competed in four NBA All-Star Games, making four All-NBA teams, and prior to that, winning an Olympic Gold Medal, and being named the ABA MVP, per source.

In his prime, Haywood averaged 30 points and 13 rebounds for the Seattle Supersonics, but even as he aged, he was still able to contribute at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in the NBA.

The Supersonics did retire his jersey — number 24.
