Payton added that he still keeps in touch with Walker, his former Miami Heat teammate, and talked to him about two months ago. Walker has been teaming up with Morgan Stanley’s global sports and entertainment division to teach young athletes how to handle their money, and last year he produced “Gone In An Instant,” a documentary about his experience with being generous to a fault with friends and others. “He’s doing a lot of things with a lot of companies trying to go around (and) tell his story,” Payton said. “He made a mistake and he realized it after everything was gone and he’s trying to prevent other people from doing the same thing.”
In 1998 at 19-years old, Walker signed his first three-year $5.5 million deal in the NBA and said the biggest mistake players make when it comes to finances is “lack of education.” “You become a millionaire overnight and you don’t know what do with it. We don’t understand taxes. We don’t understand lifestyles. We create a big expensive lifestyle for ourselves… I had some fetishes that I liked, materialistic things… and then obviously you get into an investment world that you don’t know about, that you don’t learn about in college and you put your money in the hands of other people that try to take care of it,” he said.
